Clarion India

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM — Senior Congress leader and MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala Shashi Tharoor has slammed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s message on Friday morning in which he urged the people to light lamp on Sunday at 9 pm.

Tharoor said there is no vision of future in PM Modi’s speech.

“Listened to the Pradhan Showman. Nothing about how to ease people’s pain, their burdens, their financial anxieties. No vision of the future or sharing the issues he is weighing in deciding about the post-lockdown. Just a feel-good moment curated by India’s Photo-Op PrimeMinister,” tweeted Tharoor, who is presently stuck at Delhi, after the parliament session ended.


In another tweet Shashi Tharoor said on Prime Minister’s speech :

“PM spoke on Ram Navami at 9 am for 9 mins, asked us to light diyas & candles on 5/4 at 9 pm for 9 mins. He is invoking all the auspicious elements Hinduism associates with number 9. Back to Ram Bharose?!”

Navaid Hamid, President of the All India Muslim Majlise Mushawarat, also criticised the Prime Minister’s speech rather message given at this crucial time of crisis and said the speech lacked vision.

Speaking to Clarion India, Navaid Hamid said:

“One more disappointing speech which reminds of the ancient Roman emperors who use to organise games to distract people from issues of hunger and misrule. The speech lacks vision to address issues of anxiety and agony faced by common citizens and it was silent on post Coronavirus lockdown remedies.”

“Ironically the PM speech, for second time, has made this crisis into a celebration event by asking to light up candles,” he said.
