In a tit for tat action, Congress on Friday (April 17) threatened to campaign against Prime Minister Narendra Modi abroad whenever he attacks previous governments of the country on foreign soil and said he should behave like a PM and not an RSS 'pracharak'. Demanding an apology from the Prime Minister, who while speaking at at an event in Canada yesterday accused the previous governments of creating a "mess" in the country, the opposition party said Modi should realise that he represents the country and not RSS or BJP when he goes abroad. "It shows his sick mentality. He has again broken the tradition of not taking domestic politics abroad and has again made malicious attacks on previous governments. "We cannot tolerate such unbecoming behaviour any longer. Henceforth, if he again does so on foreign soil, a Congress leader or spokesman will be present there and will respond immediately," party spokesman Anand Sharma told reporters. He replied in the negative when asked if it would not precipatate matters between the two sides and said it woukd help bring "balance". "The Prime Minister should apologise. We have honoured the convention so far. The Prime Minister should realise that he goes abroad as the Prime Minister of the country and not as a 'Pracharak' of the BJP and RSS," the spokesperson said.Taking an apparent dig at the previous governments, Modi had yesterday said, "Jinko gandagi karni thi, woh gandagi kar ke chaley gaye, par hum safai karenge (Those who had to create a mess, they have done so and left. We will clean it up)." Charging that Modi had painted a picture which suggested that the country was known only for corruption and scams before he came to office, Sharma said the prime minister had "lowered the dignity" of his office. "He can even mislead Obama. That he has done", remarked Sharma when asked about citation written by the U S President eulogising the Prime Minister when international magazine Time picked Modi as one of its 100 Most Influential People. In the citation, Obama has referred to Modi's ascent from humble origins -"from poverty to Prime Minister"- and his resolve to deliver on the pledge of development. "Determined to help more Indians follow in his path, he's laid out an ambitious vision to reduce extreme poverty, improve education, empower women and girls and unleash India's true economic potential while confronting climate change," Obama wrote.In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, panelists -- Nalin Kohli, National Spokesperson, BJP & Advocate; R Rajagopalan, Senior Journalist; Tom Vadakkan, National Spokesperson, Congress; Madhukar Jetley, Advisor to Govt of UP in NRI Dept & Externally Aided Projects Dept and Saba Naqvi, Political Editor, Outlook -- discuss the issue -- is the Congress overreacting?
Violence on Friday (April 17) broke out on the streets of Srinagar on a day separatist leader Masarat Alam Bhat was arrested on sedition charges, with protesters burning the national flag and fighting pitched battles with security forces. The Nowhatta area of Jammu and Kashmir capital resembled a battle zone as masked protesters burnt the tricolour and clashed with security forces resulting in injuries to about a dozen people, including two policemen, official sources said. The protesters were also seen hurling stones at the police which retaliated, bursting teargas shells and using force to disperse the violent crowds. Violence erupted after authorities denied permission to the hardline Hurriyat faction led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani to hold a march from Srinagar to Tral to protest the killing oftwo youths in an army operation earlier this week. Moderate Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who led a march in Tral accused the army of killing youths after labelling them terrorists. "There is no arrest, no FIR. The government has to put an end to state terrorism," he said. Reports of stone-pelting were also received from Tral and adjoining areas.Geelani has given a strike call throughout the Valley tomorrow against the killings and today's police action. Earlier in the day, Bhat, being seen as a possible successor to Geelani, was arrested following outrage over raising of pro-Pakistan slogans and flags at a rally on Wednesday where the two were present. Both leaders were placed under house arrest here late last night. The 45-year-old hardliner was arrested from his home in Habbakadal area of the city this morning, apparently after the Centre pushed for it. As the Centre came under attack for the situation in the state ruled by PDP-BJP coalition, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh asserted India's unity and integrity were "inviolable" and "nobody will be allowed to break it".
