Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Twitter said that India missed Dr Manmohan Singh’s wisdom while the country at present is in the hands of ‘economically unsound leadership.’
Thackeray said the same while praising the former PM on his 86th birthday. He wrote, “A leader who pioneered our country to a path of economic reforms and liberalisation. After the economic liberalisation that you heralded in 1991, unfortunately the very people that benefitted from these reforms, chose not to acknowledge it.”
Taking a dig at the Modi led government, Thackeray said, “Today, our economy is the hands of economically unsound leadership and thus heading to a state of anarchy. In such times, the people of India including me, definitely miss your wisdom and presence.”
The MNS chief further wrote, “In the world of politics, there is bound to be criticism and we all some time, resorted to it. But, at the same time we have the grace to appreciate what is good. In this context, I remember Dr Manmohan Singh’s words from one his speeches – History will be kinder to me.”
Singh, who was labeled as a ‘weak PM’ b some, refused to buy the same. He had asserted in January 2014 that history would be kinder to him than the Opposition in Parliament and contemporary media. Singh said that he had done the best in the given political circumstances.
