Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for receiving the Philip Kotler Presidential award, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that he wants to “congratulate” him on winning “the world famous” prize that has no jury and has never been given out before.
Gandhi’s jibe comes a day after Modi received the first-ever Philip Kotler Presidential award here. The award 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.
I want to congratulate our PM on winning the world famous ‘Kotler Presidential Award’. In fact it’s so famous that neither it has jury nor it has never been given out before & is backed by an unheard of Aligarh company. Event Partners: Patanjali & Republic TV :), Gandhi said on Twitter
According to the award citation, Modi was selected for his “outstanding leadership for the nation”.
I want to congratulate our PM, on winning the world famous “Kotler Presidential Award”!
In fact it’s so famous it has no jury, has never been given out before & is backed by an unheard of Aligarh company.
