"It is a result of the Modi-led BJP government's diplomatic success that what could not be done for many decades has been done in two years... Unprecedented strategic and diplomatic successes have been achieved during Modi's five-nation tour.
"It is due to the Prime Minister's diplomatic skills that countries like the US, Mexico and Switzerland are supporting
India's bid to enter the NSG," Shah said adding Modi's call to isolate the countries sponsoring terrorism is also receiving support across the world.

BJP today asserted that the "goondaraj" in Uttar Pradesh will be deliberated at its National Executive meeting and demanded that Mathura's Jawahar Park be named after SP Mukul Dwivedi and SI Santosh Yadav, who were killed by encroachers during a drive to evict them.
As the park is named after Jawaharlal Nehru, the call for changing the name would again provoke a controversy as Congress has been accusing the BJP of tying to erase the legacy of Nehru.
Party's media head and secretary Shrikant Sharma had written a letter to UP CM asking him to order CBI probe into the and even change the name of the park. "These two officers did not die but were made to die by this state government," he said, alleging the government was preparing to lease out the park to Ram Vriksh Yadav, the leader of encroachers. He also died during the clash.
