New Delhi, May 7

Former prime minister Manmohan Singh on Monday said that no prime minister in the country has used his office to say things about his opponent that Narendra Modi has been doing day in and day out.

“It doesn't behove a prime minister to stoop so low and it is not good for the country as a whole as well,” Singh said. 

Addressing a conference in Bengaluru, he said, “As far as Nirav Modi is concerned, it was obvious that in 2015-16, that something was going around with the affairs of Modi. Yet, the Modi government didn't do anything. If blame has to be cast, it has to be on the government of mandate.”

“Two major avoidable blunders of the Modi government have been demonetisation and hasty implementation of the GST. Losses the economy suffered due to these blunders have severely hurt our micro small and medium enterprise sector and have resulted in loss of tens of thousands of jobs,” said Manmohan Singh.

He said the economic management of the Modi government was slowly eroding the trust of the general public in the banking system. “Recent incidents, which resulted in shortage of cash in many states, were preventable,” said Singh, who is in Bengaluru for the Karnatka Assembly elections.  ANI
