Union Minister Piyush Goyal has hailed the "untiring productivity" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on his way to Argentina for the G-20 summit where he will, among other proceedings, participate in a trilateral meeting with US President Donald Trump and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Taking to Twitter, the Railway Minister has shared a graphic and story of what the Prime Minister has engaged in over the last few weeks, writing:

Working Day & Night: PM @NarendraModi is enroute to Argentine capital Buenos Aires to attend the G20 summit & several high-level diplomatic meetings only 90 minutes after landing in New Delhi, setting an even higher benchmark for untiring productivity

The graphic primarily lists how despite having a packed schedule of election campaigning in five states, the Prime Minister kept a number of key appointments, often in foreign countries such as his keynote address at the Fintech summit in Singapore.

It makes note of the fact that the Prime Minister has held rallies in each of the five states that are going to polls, since November 23. On Wednesday, after addressing rallies in Rajasthan and spending 7 hours in planes and choppers travelling, he departed for Argentina merely an hour and a half after returning to Delhi.

Here is the Prime Minister's schedule in Argentina on Thursday(local times):

1035 hrs: Arrival at Ministro Pistarini International Airport, Buenos Aires

1830 hrs: Yoga for Peace Event, La Rural Fairgrounds 

1930 hrs: Meeting with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres
