Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) , August 28 : After India and China agreed to end their over two-month-long stand-off in the Doklam Plateau, Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Keshav Prasad Maurya hailed the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and termed him as the most powerful leader in the world.Speaking at the Ram Manohar Lohia Ayurvigyan Sansthaan, Maurya said, "It's been 2-3 hours since the Chinese troops have withdrawn from Doklam. We have the most powerful leader in the world. PM Modi's name is being trumpeted all across the world."
The Deputy Chief Minister was speaking at a programme at Gomti Nagar's Lohia Institute and a hostel's naming ceremony.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was also present at the event and unveiled the statue of Padmashri Dr. S.C. Rai.
Earlier in the day, India and China agreed to end their over two-month-long stand-off in the Doklam Plateau by reaching an understanding not to let their long standing differences become disputes.
India -China standoff at Doklam, near the Sikkim-Tibet-Bhutan trijunction had been going on for more than two months and the situation arose after China started constructing a road in the area. India objected to the road construction after the Chinese troops ignored Bhutanese protests, triggering a face-off on June 16.
