Rahul's remark on PM shows his inexperience: Nirmala

Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday described as “lack of experience” the Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s comments on an advice given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the officials on using social media.

“It (Rahul’s remark) shows lack of experience. The prime minister has been a motivating person for both his ministers and bureaucrats. The prime minister asked the officials not to use social media for self promotion and instead focus on serving people,” she told reporters here on seeking her reaction on Rahul’s comments.

Rahul had said that Modi was not in a position to lead by example on his counsel against self promotion, taking a swipe at the prime minister who extensively uses social media.

Niramala was speaking after inaugurating her office on Ali Asker Road in Bengaluru. She is a Rajya Sabha MP from Karnataka. She also announced to adopt Mallanayakanahalli village in Kolar district under ‘Adarsh Gram’ yojane. Asked about accusations that the Centre is trying to impose Hindi language by implementing the ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’ programme, the minister said the Centre has no such intentions. The programme is aimed at promoting regional languages and culture.
