Jaipur: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should not be “criticised over everything.”
Speaking at an event here, Tharoor said, “we should not criticise Modi on each and everything. However, being in the Opposition, we need to find out reasons for his return. His percentage of votes shot up from 31 per cent to 37 per cent while our vote percentage went down. His policies such as Swachh Bharat Yojana and Ujjwala Yojana worked well for him. However, in reality, over 65 per cent of these toilets lack water. Here, we need to get into constructive criticism.”
Tharoor also said that he wanted elections to be held to elect the party president for it would give a wider choice to Congress workers.
Besides, the Congress leader has also blamed the sentral government for the present economic condition of the country.
“Demonetisation escalated the problems. Last week, the automobile industry lost 13,000 employments. The way jobs are being lost never happened in the last 50 years. The government should accept its faults”, he added.
