Congress leader P Chidambaram on Monday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for levelling allegations against former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and former Vice-President Hamid Ansari during the Gujarat election campaign.
Chidambaram asked in a tweet:
The BJP's campaign in Gujarat in the last few days, especially yesterday, has gone beyond bizarre. Should a political party go to any length to win an election?— P. Chidambaram (@PChidambaram_IN) December 11, 2017
Is winning an election so important that such allegations can be made against a former Prime Minister and a former Vice President?— P. Chidambaram (@PChidambaram_IN) December 11, 2017
Chidambaram also said the BJP's campaign Gujarat in the last few days, especially on Sunday, had gone "beyond bizarre". "Should a political party go to any length to win an election?"
Chidambaram was obviously referring to Modi's insinuation at a public meeting on Sunday in Gujarat that Singh and Ansari attended a dinner at Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar's house where a former Pakistan foreign minister and the current High Commissioner of that country in India were also present.
