Since becoming India’s Prime Minister in 2014, PM Narendra Modi has not taken a single day off from work, according to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in response to a Right to Information (RTI) query.
Someone named Prafful P. Sarda asked two questions in the RTI. First, they wanted to know how many days PM Modi has been at his office since he started as the Prime Minister in 2014. The second question was about the number of days he attended various events and functions after becoming the PM.
The RTI request was officially received on July 31, 2023.
In response to the first question, the PMO said, “The Prime Minister is always working and hasn’t taken any time off since taking office.”
The PMO shared a link that shows PM Modi has been part of more than 3,000 events, both in India and in other countries, since he became Prime Minister in May 2014.
Back in December 2015, a similar RTI was filed, and the response was the same – PM Narendra Modi didn’t take any time off during his first term.
In 2019, Union Home Minister Amit Shah confirmed that PM Narendra Modi had not taken any time off in his 20 years of public service.
Recently, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar met with members of the Indian community in Bangkok and said, “I believe our country is very lucky to have someone like PM Modi leading us at this time. I’m saying this not just because he’s the Prime Minister now, but also because I’m a part of his team, and I truly support his leadership.”
To sum it up, PM Narendra Modi’s dedication to his role as Prime Minister, as confirmed by multiple RTI inquiries and high-ranking officials, is beyond doubt.
