Sambalpur (Odisha): Narendra Modi today tore into Salman Khurshid over his remarks against the Supreme Court and EC, saying it amounted to “destruction” of institutions.

Addressing a huge ‘Vijay Shankalp Samavesh' rally at Sambalpur in Odisha today,  Modi said Congress leaders have already started searching for excuses for a “certain” defeat.

In his second rally in Odisha, Modi's tone towards chief minister Naveen Patnaik softened and he did not go after the BJD leader, who has since distanced his party from the Third Front, with the same vigour as he had done in his first address at Bhubaneswar.

He condemned External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid's remarks in London in which he had criticised Election Commission and Supreme Court and said he used a foreign land to target the country's two respected institutions. 

“I wonder which country does he represent. He has gone to London to abuse the EC. He has destroyed its reputation. They (Congress) are looking for excuses for their certain defeat.  He has attacked the Supreme Court also. Prime Minister, it is your responsibility to look into it,” he said.  The name of Indian National Congress should be changed to Institution Neglecting Congress, he said, adding that it had become the ruling party's habit to attack and abuse institutions.
