"Modi is a god's gift for India. He is the messiah of the poor. He inherited challenges in each and every sector. He is steering clear of them," Naidu said while moving the political resolution adopted on the final day of two-day BJP national executive meet.

He also said that Modi is seen as a leader of the largest democracy in the world.

"India is recognised and respected everywhere because of Narendra Modi," he said.

However, when reporters asked Home Minister Rajnath Singh about Naidu's statement, he said he "did'nt hear Venkaiahji saying this".

He also declined to reply whether he or the BJP believes Modi is god's gift to the nation.

Naidu also said that Modi has become one of the most popular leaders in the world and is working to make India a strong and wealthy country.
