Mumbai, Sep 27, 2017: Former Maharashtra chief minister and senior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s style of functioning by claiming that even as its own ally Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is not happy with him.
In a public interview organised by Maharashtra Media, Chavan was asked about his recent statement that the Sangh was not happy as Modi did not induct two ‘RSS men’ in the cabinet.
“There is discontent within RSS over Modi’s style of functioning. RSS is not happy with him as he is not taking the Sangh in consideration while taking decisions. In the recent cabinet reshuffle, he inducted four former bureaucrats,” Chavan said.
The Congress leader claimed that “It is evident that Modi does not have capable leaders, he said, adding that Sushma Swaraj should have been given the defence portfolio. Suresh Prabhu was removed as the railway minister, not because of accidents but because “he was opposing the bullet train project.”
Chavan also said had he kept the home portfolio with himself when he was the chief minister “there would have been a qualitative change”. Home portfolio was with Congress’ ally NCP for much of the time during the Congress-led regime.
