3. The election process in India is very fair and holds great importance for Prime Minister Modi. They have to face heavy opposition and various charges and counter-allegations from opposition parties ranging from municipal elections to the Lok Sabha elections at the Center. Conversely, elections in Russia are a joke, because there is a huge lack of real opposition there. Hence Putin is the surveyor from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg and he has a monopoly on power.

4. Despite the global recession in the Modi government, the country's economy and GDP remain at a good level and satisfactory. In spite of all the challenges, businesses are doing well.

Border issues are handled differently in all countries, but Modi heeds the suggestions of the US and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
Apart from high profile shows and speeches abroad, Modi has been unable to influence international media and politics to a greater extent than Putin.

2. Putin sees his business everywhere. They have no meaning with the fancy protocol given by a country nor do they care about it. He is considered a veteran of global politics and a sportsman. This is the reason why they became so much better than American presidents like Bush, Clinton, Obama, and Donald Trump, while it is very difficult to get these people to agree on any international issue. Putin does not care for American and UN advice at all. He has a bilateral dialogue with any leader, he is known to come for hours late.

3. PM Modi also openly greets those who do not personally agree or hate him. Modi's behavior during the meeting is friendly with those people as well. At the same time, those facing Russian President Putin in such an environment may have to regret a lot.

4. Modi differs only from Pakistan, while Putin is facing east from his current borders, with heavy sanctions against Russia.

5. Modi is active on social media all the time. He keeps updating via Facebook and Twitter almost every hour. However, he never held an open press conference during his tenure.

However, journalists also have to wait for four to five hours.
