New Delhi: Undoubtedly, PM Narendra Modi is the most powerful person in India.
Now, some consider that Ajit Doval, who was selected by PM Narendra Modi as India's National Security Advisor (NSA), is the most powerful person in India after the PM, according to a report in Bloomberg.
National Security Advisor is a position that holds more sway than the ministers of defense and foreign affairs.
Interestingly, Ajit Doval spent seven years undercover in Pakistan and recruited rebels as informants in disputed Kashmir.
Noteworthy, since NSA Doval took the job, he has supported a nationalist agenda while adopting a tougher line against hostile neighbors, the report added.
