Manmohan Singh went on more foreign trips than PM Narendra Modi: Amit Shah
New Delhi : Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been to more foreign trips than Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said BJP chief and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, attacking Congress over questions on how many trips does PM Modi make.
"Everywhere Modi goes, thousands of people are present at the airports chanting 'Modi-Modi'. It gives a stomach ache to the Congress and they are saying why Modi is travelling so much," he said.
Talking about PM Modi's Houston address along with the US President Donald Trump, he said that the event was an example to show that Modi is the "most popular Prime Minister in the world".
Then, taking a dig at the former Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh, he said, "Manmohan Ji used to read out from a paper written and given to him by Madam. At times, Manmohan Ji read scripts for Russia in Malaysia and vice-versa".
On September 27, the World Tourism day, the Congress had tweeted a collage of photos showing the Prime Minister boarding or de-boarding aircraft. The accompanying caption read, "Happy World Tourism Day".
