India does not eye anyone’s territory: PM

0

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday that India does not eye anyone’s territory and resources, asserting that its model of development aid was not based on “give and take”, comments which come amid increasing Chinese efforts to expand its influence in the sub-continent.
Addressing the first conference of persons of Indian origin (PIO) parliamentarians from across the globe, Modi also asked them to invest in India and act as catalyst in the country’s growth. The event is being held to mark 102nd anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s return from South Africa.
The prime minister said India has always played a constructive role in the world and that Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence can counter extremism and radicalisation.
“India is that country which has always played a constructive role in the world arena. We do not measure our policy towards any nation on the basis of profit or loss but view it through the prism of human values,” he said.“We neither have the intention of exploiting anyone’s resources nor are we eye anyone’s territory. Our focus has always been on capacity building and resource development,” he said.
