If protests are bad, PM Modi must reveal his idea of democracy: Congress

leader and former foreign minister has said that if Prime Minister thinks that protests organised to highlight the inconvenience caused to the people by is a bad thing, then he should explain his idea of democracy.

"He (Prime Minister Modi) thinks a protest is a bad thing and democracy should not have a protest, then he should better explain what his idea of democracy is. If he does a good job, then he will get support, and, if he does a bad job, then he will be criticised. Whoever is right will ultimately prevail," he said.

"I don't think Prime Minister needs to worry about the issue of corruption, as he will get 100% support, but the issue of corruption must be handled with honesty. Now, if you handle in a corrupt manner, obviously you will be opposed, handle it in an honest manner and the country and every party will support you and stand by you," he added.

On Sunday, in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Modi took a swipe at the opposition over their plans to organise a country-wide protest against demonetisation.

"We talk about ending black money and corruption, they (opposition) talk about shutting down the country," he said.

He was addressing the BJP's rally

Saying that his government is dedicated to the poor, Modi thanked the public for their support in granting him 50 days to normalise the cash crunch situation.

On November 14, he was in district to inaugurate various government projects. Prime Minister Modi used the occasion to speak on and asked the public to give him 50 days to improve the cash crunch situation.
