The current minister for Law and Education from Himachal Pradesh and BJP leader Suresh Bhardwaj went on to say that it’s because of Modi that India has the lowest mortality rate in the world from coronavirus.
On the festive occasion of Maha Shivratri, Himachal Pradesh minister Suresh Bhardwaj, could not hold himself from comparing Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Lord Shiva, Outlook India reported. He even announced PM Modi to be a reincarnation of Shiva at the Ram Mandir temple in the heart of Shimla.
Bhardwaj is a member of the Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly from the Shimla constituency in the Shimla district. He is the Cabinet Minister for Law and Education in Jairam Thakur led BJP government.
Bhardway said, “Prime Minister Modi has blessings of Lord Shiva. Rather, he is an incarnation of Lord Shiva. It’s only because of this, he has saved the country from the global pandemic of coronavirus.”
Bhardwaj further added that just before the 2019 Lok Sabha results, Modi had gone to the Kedarnath temple where he spent two days in the cave. Thus, he enjoys the full blessings of Lord Shiva and it’s Lord Shiva who has empowered and blessed him to achieve success in the fight against coronavirus.
The four-time Shimla MLA and former Rajya Sabha member said that among all the countries that have launched vaccines, India has taken a lead by manufacturing two vaccines. He added the maximum vaccination is happening in India.
He said India is the only country that has launched such a huge vaccination drive. Most of the nations are replicating India and are asking for the Indian vaccine.
According to Bhardwaj, Modi’s image has improved drastically after the launch of the vaccination drive and he has successfully dealt with Covid-19. Today, Modi has achieved the stature of a world leader.
“He is, in our views, the incarnation of Lord Shiva”, said Bhardwaj.
Bhardwaj went on to say that it’s also because of Modi that India has the lowest mortality rate in the world. Our country has dealt with coronavirus spread very effectively.

Bhardwaj was visiting the famous Ram Mandir temple in the heart of Shimla town to attend a “Shiv-Vivah” function on the occasion of Maha Shivratri where he met media representatives and expressed his views on Modi and the festival.
While he may have called Modi an incarnation of Lord Shiva figuratively (They all say so) and sycophancy aside, however, being a law and education minister he was expected to provide the appropriate information at least on some of his views which he expressed as facts.
India doesn’t have the lowest mortality rate in the world and at the time of writing the article, the official case fatality rate of UAE, Thailand, Taiwan, and even immediate neighbor Nepal is lower than India. Even while he compared it with the developed world (which he perhaps should not) New Zealand has a better CFR than India.
His statement about maximum vaccination happening in India is also not correct. India doesn’t even rank in the top 10 as a country, in either percentage of people vaccinated or the total number of vaccination done.
