Union Minister for Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday (19 November) dismissed the growing clamour against 'intolerance' in India as a "propaganda", while stating that India was the most tolerant country in the world.

“Some people are trying to portray that India is becoming intolerant but they will never succeed in their effort. India is the most tolerant country in the country,” he said.

The minister went on to say that some people are necessarily creating an ‘intolerant’ image of the country instead of respecting people mandate and the response generating form PM Modi’s foreign trips is a clear testimony that there is no intolerance.

“We follow the principle of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam and equality for all (our country believes that the whole world is one family)," he said at the Resurgent Rajasthan Partnership Summit's inaugural session in Jaipur.

"People have given us the mandate for development. Public mandate is supreme. Do not create negative image, and country is moving fast and developing...World is seeing India. World has given tremendous response to Prime Minister, it means response to India...India is a destination for investment", he said.

"The country witnessed politics of poverty, but now it has changed to politics of development under the dynamic Prime Minister Narendra Modiji," he added.
