Too early to review shortfalls of Narendra Modi govt: Khurshid
Farukhabad (UP): Senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid today said its too early to review the shortcomings of the Narendra Modi Government and it should be given at least six months to a year's time to perform.
“It's too early to review shortfalls of the Narendra Modi government, which got people's mandate. It should be given six months to a year time to perform,” Khurshid told reporters last night.
The former union minister said that opposition Congress would support the Centre in case of any threat to the country. On Priyanka Gandhi getting involved in active politics, Khushid said it is her personal decision and those who are not in the Congress were raising the issue of changing leadership.
“Joining or not joining politics is personal decision of Priyanka. Issues like Congress' poor performance and ‘failure' of Rahul Gandhi, should be raised within party forum,” he said in reply to a query.
On Chinese incursions, Khurshid said that BJP used to term the previous Congress Government a “coward” on the issue and when the same happened recently during the visit of Chinese President to India it did not say anything.
On not inviting Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Jawahar Lal Nehru birth anniversary celebrations, he said, “what should be one's reaction for a person, who used to talk about Congress-free India.”
When asked about possibilities of CBI probe into the activities of Dr Zakir Hussain Trust, the Congress leader said that the government should first probe the “mark-sheet” of its minister Ramshaknar Katheria who holds charge of Minister of state for HRD.
