New Delhi, Nov. 12 (ANI): The Congress Party on Thursday came down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his ‘frequent foreign tours’, saying these visits were not beneficial to the nation in any way.
“These visits of the Prime Minister don’t benefit the nation. This is probably the 32nd country he is visiting. With one and half year he has visited these many countries. We must analyse how these visits are benefitting the nation,” Congress leader Rashid Alvi told ANI.
Alvi also questioned the outcome of Prime Minister Modi’s visit to the neighbouring countries.
“He first visited Nepal and today Nepal is raising its voice against us in the United Nations. He had initiated talks with Pakistan and today they are firing canons at the borders. He has a special kind of interest in America, the same nation is stating that there are violations of Human Rights in India,” Alvi said.
Alvi further alleged that the crowd during in Prime Ministers Modi’s international rallies were ‘gathered’.
“This has become the habit of the Prime Minister whichever country he visits he gathers the crowd and deliver his speeches. People understand now that this crowd is manipulated and this further degrades the level of respect against him,” he added.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Modi today departed for his three-day visit to United Kingdom, where terrorism and economic reforms seeking to boost investment will be his major agenda besides paying homage to Mahatma Gandhi’s statue near the Parliament and addressing the Indian diaspora at Wembley.
External Affair Minister Sushma Swaraj was present at the Indira Gandhi International airport to see off the Prime Minister and was seen having a lengthy discussion with him before he left. (ANI)
