The Congress taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he suffers from an “unhealthy mentality” and accused him of making irresponsible and untrue statements. The party further blamed Modi of misleading the people of Gujarat on the contributions of Jawaharlal Nehru.
“The Prime Minister has said the country’s first Prime Minister had not done anything for Gujarat. It is wrong and far from the truth. We condemn it,” party spokesperson Anand Sharma told the media here.
The Prime Minister suffers from an “unhealthy mentality, which is an issue of national concern”, Sharma said.
“He feels that nothing happened in Gujarat and the country before he came,” he said.
“Unhealthy mentality is when a person says the universe was not created before me, India did not have an identity before I came… He (Modi) always says this is happening for the first time.
“He needs to be told that India became a nuclear power in 1974, we went to space, Chandrayaan and Mangalyaan had already been launched… India was recognised worldwide.
“If he feels nothing happened before he came, it is the responsibility of the opposition to correct him. Whatever he is saying is untrue. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is very nervous. They are rattled over the increasing support for the Congress in Gujarat.”
