Lucknow: Bhutan was the first foreign trip of Narendra Modi after becoming the Prime Minister of India and what most of us still remember about it is the invention of a new jargon for corporate term B2B – ‘Bharat 2 Bhutan’.
Prior to the Lok Sabha elections in the year 2014, Modi elaborated several abbreviations during his election campaigns, which might have sounded technically awkward, but it had hit the minds of electorate in the most practical way.
The same was seen in the last two election rallies of PM Modi in Uttar Pradesh which will observe polls from February 11. His recent abbreviation SCAM which he used in Meerut rally on Feb 3rd prompted BSP Supremo Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav to react.
