Dr Manmohan Singh, unusually aggressive, made a focused attack on the BJP laced with urdu couplets amidst economics and data.
The Prime Minister referred to the BJP’s Delhi meet last weekend where “choicest abuses” against the Congress leadership. The BJP fielded an iron man who said Manmohan Singh is the weakest PM. We all know what happened. People will repeat the same fate,” Dr Singh said, referring to the BJP’s campaign around the leadership of LK Advani in the 2009 General Elections.
The PM drew number-heavy comparisons between the years of NDA rule that preceded his first government in 2004 and the achievements of the UPA. The BJP’s ‘India Shining’ campaign had been “a disaster,” Dr Singh said in a speech that he peppered with an Urdu couplet and a Hindi adage.
