Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his language. He said,”No prime minister in our country has used the office of prime minister to say things about his opponent the way Mr Modi has been doing day in and day out…. It is very shocking to see the Prime Minister of the country stoop so low and use language and frame ideologies that are unbecoming of a Prime Minister.” “I sincerely hope that Modi learns his lesson and does not polarize the society in Karnataka,”he added.
He was addressing a press conference in Karnataka as part of the ruling Congress’s campaign. He also criticised Modi government’s “disastrous policies” and “economic mismanagement”, stating that the country was facing crises that were avoidable. He said,”Perpetrators of these frauds meanwhile escape with impunity. The economic mismanagement of the Modi government, and I say this with great care and responsibility, is slowly eroding the trust of the general public in the banking sector.”
Congress leader said,”Our farmers are facing an acute crisis, our aspirational youth are not finding opportunities, and the economy is growing below its potential.” He also said,”It pains me to see how rather than standing up to all these challenges, the government’s response has been to stifle dissent when deficiencies are pointed out.”
He took a dig at Modi,”India is a complex and diverse country and no one person can be the repository of all wisdom.”
