JPNN|New Delhi | Jan 9, 2014|Narendra Modi Thursday took a jibe at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his "better times ahead" remark at an NRI meet while attacking UPA and said scandals, policy paralysis and divisive politics have hit people's perception and trust in the government and its leaders.Addressing the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas plenary session, Modi exhorted NRIs to participate in the election process by voting and helping in the "revolution" taking place in the country.

"The Prime Minister said a good thing yesterday. He said good days are coming very soon and there is nothing to feel dejected. I agree with the Prime Minister. I don't want to say anything more. Maybe, you should wait for four to six months. Good days are surely coming," the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate said, indicating that his party would form the next government at the Centre after the Lok Sabha polls.

Modi's jibe at Singh came a day after the Prime Minister sought to dispel apprehensions among the Indian diaspora on the state of the economy, saying that the country was heading towards "better times" and there was no reason to despair about its present or worry about the future.In his written speech distributed at the meet, Modi slammed the UPA government, saying, "The last decade in particular has witnessed unprecedented depths of petty politics, self interest and exploitation overwhelming the exalted principles of inclusive and sustainable nation building.

"A deteriorating economy; unrelenting stream of scandals and corruption exposes; poor delivery of basic services; policy paralysis, stagnating society and an overall atmosphere of divisive politics - has severely hit the people's perception of and trust in the government and its leaders."To a question on corruption, he said the focus must change from dealing with the issue after surfacing of scams to that which helps to prevent corruption.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
