Modi doesn’t need prompter, script or a director: Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi

New Delhi | Responding to the jibe at PM Modi by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over his fear of talking to press, Union Minister and BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that PM Modi doesn’t require a script or director to speak.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on 18 December during the launch of his book  ‘Changing India’ took a jibe at PM Modi saying,” People say I was a silent prime minister. I think these volumes [his book ‘Changing India’] speak for themselves. I wasn’t the PM who was afraid of talking to the press. I met press regularly and on every foreign trip I undertook, I had a press conference on return.”

Responding to the statement, Naqvi said,”He (Manmohan Singh) is a senior leader & a former PM, when he was PM he used to talk on someone’s order and script, even now he is doing same. He should realise that PM Modi doesn’t need prompter, script or a director.”

PM Modi has faced criticism from the opposition over not addressing a single press conference in his 4.5 years of tenure ever since taking over as the Prime Minister in 2014.
