Former Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh on Friday accused his successor Narendra Modi of vitiating the environment in the country’s universities and national institutions like the CBI.
Speaking at the launch of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s book “The Paradoxical Prime Minister”, Singh said: “The environment in our universities and national institutions like the CBI is being vitiated.”
“In 2014, Narendra Modi was elected 14th prime minister of India on the back of many lofty promises he made to the people of India. In the past four years, Modiji and his government have failed the electorate and eroded their voters’ faith. He (PM Modi) has spoken of being a prime minister for all Indians but he…presides over and has mostly been silent in the face of widespread communal violence, mob lynching and cow vigilantism,” Singh said in New Delhi.
