Majlis Speaker Nasheed Praises India

The Speaker of the People's Majlis, Mohamed Nasheed, praised India today.
He claimed that the source of India's prosperity was its parliamentary democracy and social pluralism.
In a tweet he posted on the occasion of Indian Republic Day, he wrote that India's "parliamentary democracy" and its "pluralistic society" was delivering prosperity to over a billion people.
However, though the Speaker characterised India as prosperous, statistics show that 68.8% of the Indian population live on USD$2 or less a day. Also, 30% of the population live on USD$1.5 a day or less.

In his tweet, the Speaker congratulated the Indian Prime Minister.
