New Delhi: In an interesting turn of the event former PM Manmohan Singh met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, hours after launching a scathing attack on the NDA government on Wednesday. Singh went to 7 Race Course Road – residence of the Prime Minister to meet him.
“Very happy to meet Dr Manmohan Singh ji & welcome him back to 7RCR. We had a great meeting,” Modi tweeted later. Earlier in the day, Singh hit out at the Modi government saying it was “harping” on corruption to divert people’s attention to non-issues.
In a scathing attack, Singh alleged that institutions of democracy are under threat and the entire edifice of the welfare state is being dismantled in the guise of promoting faster economic growth.
Singh launched a sharp attack on the BJP government for its frequent reference to scams under his tenure and asserted, “I have not used my public office to enrich myself, to enrich my family or my friends. The BJP government keeps on harping on this theme of corruption because it wants to divert people’s attention to non-issues.”
