In an apparent jibe at Narendra Modi, who lashed out PM Manmohan Singh from Bhuj, senior BJP leader LK Advani on Thursday said that on a day like Independence Day, leaders should not be critical of others.
“I heard the PM today... On Independence Day, without criticising anybody, we all should realise that India has unlimited potential for the future,” he said. Advani was speaking at his residence in the Capital after hoisting the national flag, moments after Gujarat CM Modi spoke at an Independence Day function in Bhuj, where he hit out at the PM.
Advani, BJP parliamentary party chief, struck an optimistic note about the future. “India has unlimited potential for the future. This past decade which — as the PM said today — will get over in 2014... he has enumerated the achievements and the shortcomings of this decade. We should now be concerned about making the decade starting from 2014 an unprecedented one in India's history. We should give it the best performance we can,” Advani said.
