Cong needles BJP over Shourie's criticism of Modi Govt

Congress today latched on to former Union minister Arun Shourie's sharp attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to embarass the BJP.

"Shourie has accused the Prime Minister of narcissism and of running a one-man Presidential government the direction of which was dangerous for India," Congress spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters here.

"What does BJP have to say about this allegation made by their own ideologue, fellow traveller and a former Minister in the NDA Government?"

Tewari also sought to know the reaction of the ruling party to Shourie's charge that there has been "complete mismanagement" of India's relations with Pakistan and that the Modi dispensation has mishandled the economy.

In an interview, Shourie, a Cabinet minister in the Vajpayee government who has drifted away from BJP in recent years, had attacked the Modi government.
