Congress General Secretary, Digvijay Singh once again took a veiled dig at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He has said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has initiated discussion on GST with Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after BJP was trounced in Bihar Assembly elections.
“The people of Bihar deserved to be congratulated for pulling Modi from sky and brought him down to earth by defeating his party in the recent assembly elections,” Singh told PTI reporters at his residence . “Modiji has initiated initiated discussion on GST with Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh after suffering humiliating defeat in Bihar,” he said.
“Otherwise he would have not said that the country can run by consensus and not majority. It was because of Bihar and for this besides people of Bihar, we are equally grateful to the Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar, Rashtriya Janata Dal President, Lalu Prasad Yadav and Soniaji (Sonia Gandhi),” the Congress leader said.
“The same Modi who used to say that Congress has not done anything in the last 60 years, now, suddenly remembered that earlier Prime Ministers had also contributed in nation’s development. It is because of Bihar only,” he remarked.
It may be recalled that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi had invited former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi at a meeting with Modi over the GST issue and other legislative business pending in Parliament .
Referring to Congress victory in Ratlam-Jhabua Lok Sabha seat in a recent by-poll in Madhya Pradesh, Singh said that Modi and Chouhan (Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh) should clearly understand that nothing will happen by making hollow promises and it clearly reflects that tribals are angry with them especially, Chouhan.
