Reacting to Chief Minister Narendra Modi's remarks that people would forgive the "mistakes" of a government if it serves them well, the Congress on Monday said that if he feels he has made a mistake, he should apologise to the nation.
The ruling party also said that urban local bodies election results in Karnataka validated senior BJP leader L K Advani's contention that the people are disillusioned with the BJP. "L K Advaniji has admitted that the mood of the people is against the Congress and they are simultaneously disillusioned with the BJP too. Only half of his statement is true. Urban body polls in Karnataka have proved that Advaniji was right about BJP," Congress spokesman Rashid Alvi said at a press briefing here.
Referring to Modi's address to the Indian diaspora in the US and Canada through video-conference in which the CM had defined secularism as "India first" and said that people will "forgive our mistakes" if the government serves them selflessly, the Congress spokesman said, "I am amazed that someone like Narendra Modi is teaching secularism to this country. I do not see any connection between Modi and secularism. The whole country knows what kind of secularism he has and what kind of secularism he believes in. If he feels that he has made a mistake, he should seek an apology from the people of this country."
