PM’s Language Unacceptable, Manmohan Singh and Co. Write to President

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi must be cautioned against using “unwarranted, threatening and intimidating language” that is unbecoming for the country’s top post, a group of Congress leaders including former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh has written to the President.

“It is unthinkable that in our democratic polity, the Prime Minister as head of the government would utter words which are threatening, intimidating in content and a public warning to the leaders of members of the main opposition party, the Congress,” the leaders said in a letter to President Ram Nath Kovind.

The letter refers to PM Modi’s speech in Karnataka on May 6, in which he said: “Congress leaders, please listen carefully, if you cross your limits, remember this is Modi — and you will pay.”

The Congress leaders said the prime minister was not expected to use menacing language even in the course of the election campaign, which amounted to using his powers and privileges as PM to settle personal and political scores.

This could not be the language of the prime minister of a constitutionally governed democratic country of 1.3 billion people, said the Congress, calling it unacceptable conduct.

Counting of votes in the Karnataka election will be held tomorrow.

“The threat held out by the Prime Minister to the Congress leadership deserves to be condemned,” said the letter signed by several Congress leaders. “We would like to state that neither the party nor our leaders will be cowed down by such threats.”

The Congress letter comes a day before the results of the Saturday Karnataka election, campaigning for which was acrimonious and did not stop at personal attacks from both sides.

Last week, Dr Manmohan Singh had accused PM Modi of having “stooped low” and used his office to target his opponents “day in and day out.”

“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,” the former prime minister said, speaking to reporters in Karnataka.

Modi is loosing his mask under stress. He realises that the ground under his feet is slipping.Imagine he has to hopp around the whole state against Rahul ,the “Pappu”. Intelligent people really sed a long time ago that modi feared Rahul,because he has the chrasima that Modi lacks.He can talk of dynastic politics but what does My do offer in return except a 2 man rule.There is no inner party democracy in BJP now.Netas can’t open their mouth.Decisions taken by Modi,who isn’t qualified to run a shop let alone a country.Where is the 15 lakh promised ?When note ban was announced Modi expected around 4 lakh cr wouldn’t come back back! Instead all the money came back as Modi left too many loopholes.Businessmen managed to convert black to white!There is talk that fake currency also got deposited!Well done Modi.

Mammoth superpower USSR itself disintegrated by own people movement, not Nuke dropped by any enemy. I think, people of India, may allow the corruption, but not any non-democratic system.

The speech says ‘IF YOU CROSS THE Limits” So long as they are within Limits,why should they worry?
Congress leader’s comments like NEECH ADMI, Mouth ka Saudagar, Blood on his hands although P.M was cleared by courts, are democratic terminology?Mr.Man Mohan Singh at least you should not have Sig ed.By signing you are still bending to the commands.This will reduce your Image.

Will you also dare to say that the language of your boss, Sonia Gandhi and your present boss, Rahul Gandhi is equally deplorable to say the least. Usage of words like “Maut Ka Saudagar” or “Khoon Ki Dalali” are, to say the least worse language used by any political leader in this country. And by the way, Dr Sahab havent you not heard the language of Delhi CM a couple of days ago. But you conveniently forget to mention all thee barbs in your letter. Selective amnesia. Or what. Dancing to the tunes of your italian bosses.

Agree. How magnanimous you and your government was when trying to use CBI to frame Mr. Modi. You looked every small details to find one reason to send him to jail and failed. Could you answer 1.3 bn population how systematically you all tried to destroy his chance to become the PM of this country.

So now congress is reduced to a whinning baby. And this party claims a 130 year old legacy. What was Diggy Raja doing when he openly warned the opposition in Azamgarh during 2009 campaign that “Remember, we have CBI under us in New Delhi”

Although Narendra Modi has been slogan mongering ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas, at the same time, he and his party men have been clamouring from Congress – mukta India. Does’nt Mr. Narendra Modi know that hatred begets hatred. It was predicted in the year 2013, that if Narendra Modi were to be Prime Minister of India, it would be disastrous for the country.
