Echoing Ramesh’s views, another senior Congress leader, Abhishek Manu Singhvi today has said that he had always maintained that demonising Modi is wrong.
New Delhi| The abrogation of Article 370 has already seen a Congress that is divided. Now, two of Congress’ prominent leaders have said that opposing PM Modi and terming him ‘Villain’ every time will not help the party. Former Union Minister Jairam Ramesh on Thursday has said that Congress cannot keep on criticising PM Modi while denying that he has done good work in certain sectors.
Echoing his views, another senior Congress leader, Abhishek Manu Singhvi today has said that he had always maintained that demonising Modi is wrong. He tweeted in support of PM Modi saying, “A one-way opposition actually helps him. Acts are always good, bad & indifferent—they must be judged issue wise and not person wise. Certainly, #ujjawala scheme is only one amongst other good deeds.”
Always said demonising #Modi wrong. No only is he #PM of nation, a one way opposition actually helps him. Acts are always good, bad & indifferent—they must be judged issue wise and nt person wise. Certainly, #ujjawala scheme is only one amongst other good deeds. #Jairamramesh

The statement comes a day after Congress Interim President Sonia Gandhi took a veiled dig at Modi saying that Rajiv Gandhi did not use the massive mandate in 1984 to spread fear.
Cannot term Modi villain continuously: Ramesh
“We have to understand the importance of the work that Modi did 2014-2019. They have returned to power on the basis of work done. Jairam Ramesh was speaking at the publication ceremony of Political Analyst Kapil Satish Komirendi’s book ‘Malevolent Republic: A Short History of the New India’ which was held in Delhi on Thursday.
Jairam Ramesh said, “Modi interacts with people in such a way that more and more people are directly connected to him. Modi’s work is being appreciated by the public. Unless we accept that many acts are done by Modi for the first time, we (the Congress) cannot face them.” Ramesh also praised PM Modi’s Ujjwala Yojana saying that millions of women benefitted from it.
