New Delhi, Sep 26: CPI (M) today hit out at Narendra Modi over his recent dig at “secularists”, saying it is “completely unbecoming” of the Prime Minister and was unprecedented for a person holding the top post to “settle” domestic political issues when abroad.
CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury also said it was “unfortunate” that the Prime Minister has undertaken “so many” foreign visits and quipped that since Modi has spent “more time” abroad, he is finding little time to settle domestic political issues when in India.
“It’s completely unbecoming. As a Prime Minister of our country, it has never happened that the domestic political issues have been settled by the Prime Minister abroad.
“Now it’s a different matter that Modi is spending more time abroad than in India. Therefore, he may not have time in India to settle the Indian political issues, so he is doing it abroad,” Yechury told reporters.
The Rajya Sabha member said it is “unfortunate” situation that the Prime Minister has undertaken “so many” foreign visits during the 16-month tenure.(PTI)
