‘Needle in haystack’ reply amid PM praise
Congress leader Salman Khurshid said on Sunday that finding something good in what Narendra Modi has done would be like looking for a needle in a haystack, days after some party leaders said the Prime Minister should be praised whenever he did good work.
“From my point of view, it would be (like) looking for a needle in a haystack to find something good that he (Modi) has done,” Khurshid told PTI in an interview. He added that the Congress had “very serious concerns” about how the country was being run.
His remarks come days after Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said Modi’s governance model was not a “complete negative story” and not recognising his work and “demonising” him all the time was not going to help.
Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor and Abhishek Manu Singhvi had also backed Ramesh over the remarks, saying the Prime Minister should be praised whenever he did something right.
“He (Ramesh) has said what he had to say. Each one of us articulates things in a manner which is suitable (to oneself). As I said, for me saying something nice about Modi would be like looking for a needle in a haystack,” he said.
