Chennai, Jan 5 : Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram has expressed concern about the direction in which the country is heading under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has declared having a 56-inch chest.
In an apprent jibe on PM Modi , who in 2014 declared at a rally in Uttar Pradesh that he has a chest of a “56-inch” which has the ability to convert Uttar Pradesh to Gujarat which is more developed, Chidambaram said, “There are several reasons why we oppose this government, like demonetisation…Who has a 52-inch chest? I’ve heard a story from Ramayana, where Lord Hanuman tore opened his chest. I am not sure even Lord Hanuman had a 52-inch chest.”
Lambasting at the Modi-led dispensation under which demonetisation took place,Chidambaram said “Even Arvind Subramanian had also said indirectly that demonetisation is wrong ,All mistakes done by a single person only.Demonetisation was by one person and GST too is also done by the same person.”
“The country is moving from being the Republic of India to being Republic of impunity. Congress’s motto is to create a fearless country,” Chidambaram said at a function in Chennai.
