New Delhi: French seer Nostradamus predicted that Narendra Modi would lead India from 2014 to 2026, says the latest Facebook post of junior home minister Kiren Rijiju, under the title “Amazing facts” in all caps and with three exclamation marks.
“French prophet Nostradamus wrote that from 2014 to 2026, a man will lead india, whom initially, people will hate but after that people will love him so much that he will be engaged in changing the country’s plight and direction,” reads what is clearly a forward that the union minister found interesting and shared; the time stamp suggests it was posted on Facebook post midnight on Thursday and is being shared, liked and cheered.
The post also reads: “This was predicted in the year 1555. A middle aged superpower administrator will bring golden age not only in India but on the entire world. Under his leadership India will not only just become the Global Master, but many countries will also come into the shelter of India.”
In sync with that thought, the photo that accompanies the post is from German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Delhi visit in October and has in it, apart from PM Modi and Ms Merkel, German delegates and Indian ministers, including Mr Rijiju.
The prediction attributed to Michel de Nostredame or Nostradamus who lived in the 16th century, is prefaced by some calculations which show that the numbers 2,8,3 in the ruling BJP’s total number of seats (283) in the current Lok Sabha add up to 13 as do those in the NDA’s total seats (337), the UPA’s (58) and the others (148).
The link between the numbers and the “Prediction of Nostradamus ‘450 years ago of Modi Era'” is not explained.
Minister Rijiju is active on Facebook, posting pictures of events he has attended, sharing videos and posts and political commentary. He is followed by 36,409 people.
