Modi an ignorant prachar-shastri, derailed economy: Congress

Anand Sharma

New Delhi, Dec 6 : In the latest war of words between the Congress and BJP in the run-up to the Gujarat polls, Congress MP Anand Sharma on Wednesday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi an “ignorant prachar-shastri” who was “less literate in economics”, leading to the country’s economy getting “derailed”.

“The Prime Minister is ignorant and disrespectful of history, less literate in economics,” Sharma said in a series of tweets.

“The economy stands derailed, jobs lost and businesses shut,” he said, blaming Modi for the slowdown.

“India had to suffer when an arth-shastri (economist) Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) was replaced by a prachar-shastri (publicist) Prime Minister (Narendra Modi),” Sharma tweeted.

“It is sad that India has a Prime Minister who is boastful, arrogant and in perpetual conflict with history, facts and ground realities.

“He has habitually insulted and misrepresented history, distorted facts and manufactured numbers,” the former Union Minister said.

The Congress and BJP have been sparing no efforts to attack each other, mostly on social networking sites, ahead of the Gujarat election.

The latest opinion poll on Tuesday predicted that it is going to be a neck-and-neck contest between the two parties in the state where the BJP has been in power for the last 22 years.

The clip also showed people making video clips of the incident instead of helping the victim.

Yadav tweeted: “What is happening in my Bihar? Today a woman has been beaten up and paraded naked on the road. You (referring to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Modi) have transformed Bihar into jungle and monster raj.”

Yadav said he was numb to see the “heart-wrenching video clip” of the women.

Presently, the woman is under police custody and undergoing medical examinations.

However, she denied her involvement in the murder.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ashes

New Delhi, Aug 21: Uttarakhand Tourism minister Satpal Maharaj and urban development minister Madan Kaushik fought over choosing a venue to keep former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ashes before the immersion in Harki Pauri.

Maharaj had recommended his Prem Nagar ashram as the venue, while Kaushik insisted that the ashes should be kept at Gayatri Teerth Shantikunj.

Shantikunj head Dr Pranav Pandya is considered as a close aide of Kaushik and Chief minister TS Rawat on Saturday announced it as the venue.

Citing BJP insiders, Hindustan Times reported that the Maharaj faction conveyed its displeasure to party Uttarakhand in-charge Shyam Jaju and the CMO.

Following this, at midnight, the information department issued a press release, stating City Sports Stadium will be the venue, where Vajpayee’s ashes will be kept.

“The change of venue at the last moment was not apt, when several functions, be it religious, spiritual, social or political, are held at Prem Nagar ashram,” Maharaj asserted.

“Kaushik arrived last evening at my ashram. We both held talks but I can’t divulge more as other senior party leaders were also there,” he added.
