Nobel committee deputy leader Asle Toje praises PM Modi but denies calling him the favourite for the Nobel Peace prize

Toje stated that PM Modi is the most trusted leader who can stop wars among warring countries and establish peace.

On Wednesday, March 15, Asle Toje, Deputy leader of the Nobel Prize Committee, praised India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and reportedly called him the biggest contender for the Nobel Peace Prize. Calling PM Modi the “most reliable face of peace in the world,” Toje hailed his governance and added that India is becoming a rich and powerful country because of PM Modi’s policies.

Asle Toje, who called India a peace legacy, believes the country is destined to become a superpower of this century. “It is interesting to see that from a growing country, India is becoming one of the primary economies of this world. India is taken more seriously now. When India speaks it tends to be with a more friendly voice, without threats” said Toje.

Furthermore, lauding India’s effort under the leadership of Modi to broker peace between Russia and Ukraine, he stated that PM Modi is the most trusted leader who can stop wars among warring countries and establish peace.

Calling himself a “big fan” of PM Modi, Toje added that every leader in the world should work for peace, and a powerful leader like Narendra Modi has a far greater ability to do so.

Toje added that the world needs leaders like PM Modi who just doesn’t think about his country but the entire humanity.

PM Modi is a leader who not only takes care of uplifting India and its economy but also contributes and participates in matters around the globe, said Toje.

UPDATE: However, despite praising PM Modi and evidently being his fan, Asle Toje, on Thursday, dismissed media reports claiming he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the biggest contender for the Nobel Peace Prize. Toje’s clarification came after news reports claimed that Toje, during this visit to India, had tipped PM Modi to be the “biggest contender” for the Nobel Peace Prize.
