Modi worst leader India has seen since Independence: Amarinder

CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the “worst leader India has seen since Independence”.

The stinging attack came a day after Modi’s outburst against the Congress on loan waiver, 1984 riots and other issues.

Singh challenged the Prime Minister to cite “even one instance of a promise fulfilled by his Government in the past five years”.

“The ‘jumlebaaz’ Prime Minister has brought the nation to its nadir with his deceptions and fabrications, and was staring at his moment of judgement at the hands of the people, who are set to throw him out of power for good,” he said while referring to Modi’s Gurdaspur rally on Thursday.

“One wonders with what face Modi intends to go back to the people of India to seek re-election a few weeks from now,” he quipped, dubbing the Prime Minister “the worst leader India has seen since independence”.

The Punjab Chief Minister minced no words in taking on Modi over the 1984 anti-Sikh riots issue, questioning the PM’s “studious silence on the BJP/RSS workers named in the Tilak Marg police station FIR related to the worst violence perpetrated against the Sikhs, while trying desperately to drag the Gandhi family into the matter even though no fingers had been pointed at them”.
