New Delhi, Oct. 29 (ANI): Criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Centre’s 10 billion dollars concessional credit to Africa, Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Thursday asked the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government to focus more on agrarian crisis in the country instead of providing monetary help to other nations.
In a seething attack on Prime Minister Modi, Yechury said it is India’s “misfortune” that the Prime Minister has no time for people here as “he is either abroad or busy with leaders from abroad when in the country”.
The Rajya Sabha MP, Yechury, was speaking on the sidelines of party’s two-day politburo meeting, which concluded on Thursday.
The Prime Minister on Thursday offered a concessional credit of 10 billion dollars to Africa over the next five years and a grant assistance of 600 million dollars even as Prime Minister Modi made a strong pitch for deeper ties in key areas of counter-terrorism, climate change and UN reforms.(ANI)
