A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi received the Philip Kotler Presidential award, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a jibe at Modi and said he wants to "congratulate" him on winning "the world famous" prize that has no jury and has never been given out before
The award, which was received by Modi on Monday in Delhi, focuses on the triple bottom-line of 'people, profit and planet'. It will be offered annually to the leader of a nation, a statement from the Prime Minister's Office said.
According to the award citation, Modi was selected for his "outstanding leadership for the nation".
The citation also states that under his leadership, India is now identified as the centre for innovation and value-added manufacturing (Make in India), as well as a global hub for professional services such as information technology, accounting and finance.
"I want to congratulate our PM on winning the world famous 'Kotler Presidential Award'!" Gandhi said on Twitter.
