Rahul mentions Obama's praise for Modi in Lok Sabha

New Delhi: Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday mentioned US President Barack Obama's praise for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in latest issue of Time magazine and called it a "first time".

The Congress vice president, speaking as soon as the zero hour started in the lower house, said: "I was at the Congress president's (Sonia Gandhi) house and I saw Time magazine... Obama ji has written a long article praising Modi," said the Gandhi scion.

"It is perhaps first time in 60 years the US president has praised someone like this," he said.

Obama has written a profile of Modi, titled 'India's reformer-in-chief', for Time magazine.

He writes that Modi's life story - his rise from poverty to become India's prime minister - is symbolic of the country's dynamism and potential.
