Union Home Minister hit out at Congress and said that during Manmohan Singh’s government, there was no policy for the country, there was no talk on the security of the country and that every day a new corruption came to the fore.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah today (October 27) addressed the inaugural session of ‘National Conference on Delivering Democracy: Reviewing two decades of PM Narendra Modi as Head of Government’. During his address, Shah said that in 2001, the BJP decided that Narendra Modi will become the CM of Gujarat. “It was a rare occasion – because he had no real experience of running administrations until then,” he said.
He also hit out at Congress and said that in Manmohan Singh’s government, the cabinet ministers considered themselves to be the Prime Minister.
“There was no policy for the country, there was no talk on the security of the country, every day a new corruption came to the fore,” Shah added.
Earlier in the day, Supreme Court formed a three-member committee to probe the Pegasus snooping.
