Kolkata: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Serum Institute of India CEO Adar Poonawalla figure among the world’s 100 most influential people, 2021 compiled by the TIME magazine.

The global list also has US President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan, former US president Donald Trump and co-founder of the Taliban Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.

Hailing Modi as one of the three-most PMs India has got along with Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, the magazine however takes a jibe at him accusing him of “eroding the rights of India’s Muslim minority and imprisoning and intimidating journalists.”

Writing about Banerjee, the profile says she “has become the face of fierceness in Indian politics. Of Banerjee, it is said, she doesn’t lead her party, the Trinamool Congress – she is the party. The street-fighter spirit and self-made life in a patriarchal culture set her apart.”
