Manmohan Singh Not As Strong As Modi In Dealing With Terror: Sheila Dikshit

Darpan News Desk IANS, 14 Mar, 2019
  • Manmohan Singh Not As Strong As Modi In Dealing With Terror: Sheila Dikshit

Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit on Thursday said, “Manmohan Singh, yes I agree with you, was not as strong and as determined as he (Modi) is.”

 

The three-time chief minister said this when asked to respond on the criticism that the UPA government did not do much after the Mumbai terror attack in 2008. She added, “but there is also a feeling that he is doing all this for politics.”

 

Tweeting an excerpt, journalist Vir Sanghvi, who had interviewed Dikshit, said, “I asked her if people would vote for Modi because of his record on national security. This is what followed. Judge for yourself if it is a ringing endorsement of Modi.”

 
 

BJP President Amit Shah on Thursday thanked former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit for her comments that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was not tough on terrorism.

 

Shah's comments came even after Dikshit denied making those comments.

 

"Thank you Sheila Dikshit ji for reiterating what the nation already knows but the Congress party is never ready to admit," Shah said in a tweet.

 

"Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit reportedly said, "Manmohan Singh, yes I agree with you, was not as strong and as determined as he (Modi) is," he added.
