‘PM Modi takes everything personally’: Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on India-Maldives row | India News – Times of India



NEW DELHI: Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of taking everything ‘personally’ since he came to power in 2014 and insisted that India needed to keep a good relationship with its neighbours. Kharge’s remarks come amid a row over ‘derogatory remarks’ made by three Maldivian deputy ministers against the Prime Minister.
“After Narendra Modi came to power, he is taking everything personally.At the international level, we should keep a good relationship with our neighbours. We should act according to time. We cannot change our neighbours,” Kharge said.
“In the worst situation countries fight, as India had fought against Pakistan for Bangladesh liberation,” he added.
Kharge went on to attack the Prime Minister for targeting the previous governments and their policies. “Here he (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) hugs someone and calls some other wrong. He passes disparaging comments on the previous policies right from the first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru saying that he did nothing. This is not good,” the Congress president said.
There has been a wave of anger against Maldives after three of its leaders made derogatory references targeting Prime Minister Modi and India. PM Modi‘s posts on X promoting tourism in the Lakshadweep islands set off a social media war between Maldivian politicians, government officials and Indian social media users. In a post, that has now been deleted, Maldivian Deputy Minister of Youth Empowerment Mariyam Shiuna made a mocking and disrespectful reference to PM Modi.
