Weeks after a controversial cover story that labelled Prime Minister Narendra Modi "Divider-In-Chief", TIME magazine, after the BJP's massive election victory and return to power, has done a turnabout with a new headline: "Modi Has United India Like No Prime Minister in Decades".
The latest article, published on the TIME website on Tuesday, asks how a "supposedly divisive figure not only managed to keep power, but increase his levels of support?" Its answer - "A key factor is that Modi has managed to transcend India's greatest fault line: the class divide".
The author, Manoj Ladwa, describes PM Modi's second term as "a victory for meritocracy, and for opportunity, thanks to a slate of welfare policies for the country's extreme poor". He also highlights the Prime Minister's rise from "one of India's most disadvantaged social groups" as aspirational.
Mr Ladwa goes on to describe the demonetisation of 2016 as "short-term pain" that led to "long-term gain" and praises PM Modi and his government for "digitization that has empowered the poor", increased tax revenue (as a result of demonetisation) and schemes like the Jan Dhan Yojana.
"Through socially progressive policies, he has brought many Indians, both Hindus and religious minorities, out of poverty at a faster rate than in any previous generation," writes Mr Ladwa, the founder and CEO of Britain-based media company India Inc., which publishes India Global Business.
The previous article by British-born writer Aatish Taseer had criticised the Modi government as one in which "minorities of every stripe-from liberals and lower castes to Muslims and Christians-have come under assault" and which has lead" India down the road to a profound anti-intellectualism".
The article was seized by opposition parties for attacks on PM Modi and the BJP during their campaign.
