Michel de Nostredame, famous as Nostradamus, had predicted around 450 years ago that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lead india from 2014 to 2026, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju said Friday.
Rijiju mentioned Nostradamus' "prediction" in a Facebook post, in which he also mentioned "amazing facts" about Lok Sabha seats, without explaining its relation with the prophecy about Modi.
"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," Rijiju said in the post.
"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'," he added.
Nostradamus was a reputed French philosopher and seer, who is believed to have predicted some of the major events, including the attack on World Trade Centre in September 2001.
The "amazing facts" about the Lok Sabha seats was this:
"In Current of Lok Sabha
BJP - 283 Seats 2+8+3 = 13
NDA - 337 Seats 3+3+7 = 13
UPA - 58 Seats 5+8 = 13
Others-148 Seats 1+4+8 = 13"
