    PM slams Modi, says BJP playing 'petty politics'

    RAIPUR: Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on Saturday took on Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi for his recent outbursts against his Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar saying that opposition leaders were playing "petty politics" in their lust to grab power.

    Addressing Congress workers meet here, Singh, without naming Modi, said some opposition leaders were using bad words against "other leaders and chief ministers" to gain cheap publicity. His obvious reference was to Modi's recent public statements, including the one at Jagdalpur, in which he accused Nitish Kumar of being a "backstabber and traitor".

    Advising the opposition to refrain from such "sasti rajniti" (petty politics), Singh said the Congress would never resort to such tactics. Dubbing the BJP as "communal", Singh said its leaders were trying to project themselves as secular to fool the people.

    Castigating the Raman Singh led BJP government in the state, Singh said the law and order situation had deteriorated to such a great extent and many innocent people, including Congress leaders and workers, had lost their lives in Maoist violence. He said the sacrifice of the Congress leaders, slain in the Bastar massacre, would always be remembered.

    Saying that huge amounts of funds were being allocated to Chhattisgarh by the Centre under various schemes, the Prime Minister said the implementation of the programmes was not being done properly and its benefits were not reaching people. He said Congress alone could ensure Chhattisgarh's progress and people would benefit immensely with the party being in power both in the state and the Centre.

    He said while the BJP was trying to claim credit for various social welfare schemes implemented in the state, the money for the same was being provided by the Centre. He said the UPA government had decided to set up many IIMs, IITs and AIIMS like institutes all over the country, including Chhattisgarh. "AIIMS is here and IIM and IIT will come soon," he said.

    Senior party leader and former chief minister Ajit Jogi was conspicuous by his absence from the "workers' meeting". AICC leaders, Motilal Vora and BK Hariprasad, and PCC president Charandas Mahant were present on the occasion.

    Not many workers turned up for the PM's address as the venue for the meeting, Indoor Stadium, in front of historic Budhatalab, was nearly half empty. The organizers were left red-faced, when many workers attempted to leave, as Singh arrived almost 40 minutes after the scheduled time of 2.40 pm. Leaders were seen forcing workers to get back to their seats.

    ***********************************************************

    It appears that the PM is tired of Narender Modi taking pot shots at him all the time.

    He has reacted.

    True to style, he has displayed his ire through the military art of 'indirect approach'............using bad words against "other leaders and chief ministers" to gain cheap publicity.

    MMS is absolutely correct.

    Looking for cheap publicity is one thing Modi and Co. are definitely doing, as evident from here, and people defend him by resorting to personal attacks, as evident from some of the following posts.

    "Traitor" seems to be the most widely used term in the BJP lexicon. :lol:

    And the PM is oblivious to the members of his own cabinet "using bad words against other leaders and chief ministers to gain cheap publicity".

    Actually, Rahul Gandhi has no issue to offer apart from the sad past and so he is ripe for the picking and so is the poor man, Manmohan, because even if he speaks of something that should lift the morale, his tone and timbre make its appears that Doomsday is near.

    Ans so Modi has a field day!

    So the PM is okay with the "big politics" of telling people that enemy intelligence services are running around the country recruiting people after riots...when they themselves are in power :rofl:
    And also they are happy with things like the communal violence bill which the try to bait certain communities with lol.

    Not to mention, trying to gag opinion polls exit polls cause ti shows them in bad light.

    I think the nation is better off with petty politics!

    On whole, the Congi leaders use far more abusive words for BJP and particularly for Modi than do the BJP leaders for Congress. Over the year each and every petty and big Congress leaders have offered nothing but abuse. MMS should talk about Sonia Gandhi calling Modi 'maut ka saudagar' to gain votes before accusing others of playing 'petty politics'. And the less said about 'petty politics' of Rahul Gandhi the better.

    Generally the PMs and PM candidates are expected to maintain decorum.
    Modi, otoh, excels at demagoguery and I see nothing wrong with him employing it to his advantage. As long as Modi's actions back the words its fine, or it'll be a yet another case of talk is cheap.

    PM slams Modi!! The headlines looks like a joke. How can someone who hardly speaks can do that?

    I think Dr. MM Singh have done what he keep on doing these years. He came to an election bound state on the eve of election and addressed a party meeting in a in-door stadium. Any other leader that too a PM might have held a big rally to influence the voters.

    Regarding use of abusive language, I guess the PM cannot advise his party man (other wise he might have to face a nonsense jab again), so the only option he has is opposition leaders. Congress leaders and Cabinet minister have used most of the abusive words against Mr. MODI.

    It would be incorrect to feel that Manmohan can address a rally.

    He is a very poor speaker and he comes out as mumbling and bumbling over issues.

    But he is a wise man, and of that there is no doubt.

    That is why he avoid giving any statement, taking any decision (letting others dictate terms to him as we saw with the CHOGM where the Tamil leaders across the board dictated the terms), or speaking at a public gathering.

    That is his trump card for survival!

    I have seen meek Sardars, but they too can be assertive and act like a Lion as their name suggest.

    But one wonder what this man, Manmohan is.

    He sure is a let down for my Sikh friends.



    Congress is in a leadership crisis.

    An army of sheep led by a lion is better than an army of lions led by a sheep.

    You have one the other hand, Manmohan, who is not even taken seriously by his own party, and on the other hand, you have this muddled and muttonheaded dynastic hand me down, Rahul Gandhi.

    And so Modi is taking them hands down!

    Seems that Congressis are frustrated with the dumbness of the PM hence directed him to 'speak' :rofl:.

    The same MMS is delivering 75% same speeches at all places from last 9 years shamelessly! He has washed his good image by 'lies' and 'fake promises' in speeches from Red Fort and other places, and has miserably lost his credibility and respect, Modi is doing a great service to the country by slamming an irresponsible lier PM in a neverbefore manner who is cheating the nation shamelessly through his fake image and MMS deserve this humiliation. MMS slams Modi !! MMS the leader of the most corrupt "Scam" party of the world Lol!:laugh:
