PM Modi is doing things which have not been done in the past: Jairam Ramesh

New Delhi | Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s governance model is not a “complete negative story”, and demonising him will not help anyone.

Speaking at a book launch, he said, “It is time we recognize PM Modi’s work and what he did between 2014 and 2019 due to which he was voted back to power by over 30 per cent of the electorate”.

“He (PM Modi) talks in a language that connects him with the people. Unless we recognize that he is doing things which people recognise and which have not been done in the past, we are not going to be able to confront this guy,” said the Congress leader, as reported by PTI.

He warned that unless we stop demonizing him all the time, we will not be able to confront him.

He said that he did not seek to praise the Prime Minister, but only wanted to give out credit where it was due.

“Let me tell you it is not a completely negative story when it comes to economics of the governance, the politics of the governance is completely different,” said the noted economist.

“The social relations that have been created out of his governance model is also completely different”, he added.

He provided an example to further elaborate his point.

“In 2019, all of us in the political discourse made fun of one or two of his programmes, but it has turned out in all electoral studies that the PMUJ is one single program which has been able to connect him with crores and crores of women and given him the political traction which he didn’t have in 2014,” said the Rajya Sabha member from Karnataka.

“Now if we are going to run this down and say this is all hocus pocus and say these are wrong numbers, we are not going to confront this guy,” he cautioned.
