New Delhi: Slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress senior leader Shashi Tharoor said that everyone has seen Modi wearing various kinds of hilarious extraordinary outfits but PM has always said no to one colour. He questioned that why does PM Modi never wear the colour green?
Speaking at a theme based seminar ‘Standing up to hatred: Violence and intolerance in contemporary India’, Tharoor went on to say: “You have seen him [Modi] in various kinds of hilarious extraordinary outfits. But still he always says no to one, why doesn’t he wear the colour green?”
Social activist Swami Agnivesh, who accused the Sangh Parivar of propagating communal hatred and urged the people to come together and fight the “menace”, was also a speaker at the event.
Criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the social activist claimed that he, along with BJP chief Amit Shah, had captured the party and the RSS. “In a way, he (Modi) is like a dictator like Adolf Hitler… Hitler also came to power through democracy and not by an army coup,” Agnivesh said.
He said he survived the mob attack in Jharkhand’s Pakur “with the grace of God. The mob would have killed me. I thought I am finished”.
Criticizing the attack on the activist, Tharoor said he was convinced that “if Swami Vivekananda were to come to today’s India, he would be the target of these goondas that Swami Agnivesh has been”. He added, “They will bring engine oil to throw at his face and will also try to knock him down on the streets because Swami Vivekananda would say [one should] respect people; he would say humanity is more important.”
