Veteran Congman Rajashekaran heaps praises on PM Modi
Days after former chief minister S M Krishna praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and subsequently joined the BJP, now it is the turn of another veteran Congress leader M V Rajashekaran to hail Modi’s leadership. Rajashekaran, who was Minister of State for Planning in the Manmohan Singh headed UPA-I government, in his letter to the Modi, expressed his congratulations over the BJP's victory in the recent held Assembly polls.

“Your kindself has been able to establish direct rapport with electorate, especially the younger generation who constitute nearly 82% of the electorate. You also got support from poor people and women cutting across caste, region, religion and ethnic groups. Your kindself has also been able to focus on poverty alleviation and empowering women to ensure their equal participation in all development activities of the country,” he has said in the letter.

Rajashekaran, son-in-law of former AICC president and chief minister the late S Nijalingappa, mentioned that “the late Smt Indira Gandhiji, while she was the prime minister for the first time gave the slogan “Garibi Hatao” and got unbelievable support from the electorate.

“Your kindself has also rightly pointed out the role of middle class in finding solutions to their problems and making them equal partners in the development process. As your kindself is aware, where ever revolutions have taken place for change in the political system, it is the middle class, who have played a major role in such change of governments.” “I pray the almighty to bestow you with good health and long life to serve India to build new India to realise the aspirations of the younger generation”, Rajashekaran has said in his recent letter to Modi.

Rajashekaran, a senior
Lingayat leader who is also close to Krishna, wrote a separate letter to Union Minister for Urban Development M Venkaiah Naidu praising his leadership qualities and speeches. A former MP and MLC, Rajashekaran, is a permanent invite to the Congress Working Committee, the highest decision making body of the party. Earlier, he had  openly criticised the working style of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah several times and pleaded the party top brass to reprimand him for ignoring loyal Congress leaders.
