PM shouldn’t get involved in election campaigning


Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut on Thursday commented that PM Narendra Modi shouldn’t campaign in elections as he belongs to the entire nation and not one party.


This comment comes a days after the one-on-one meeting between Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi,


Sanjay Raut on Thursday said Modi is the top leader of the country and the BJP, this statement has been welcomed by the oppositions. Earlier in the history no PM was doing this type of aggressive speeches and branding.


He made the statement in response to a question on whether he felt that Modi’s popularity is on a downslide as media reports suggested that RSS is contemplating to project state leaders as the face in the state elections.


However, the BJP owes its success to Narendra Modi in the last seven years and currently he is the top leader of the country and his party,” Raut said.


His involvement in campaigning “puts pressure on the official machinery”, he claimed. Raut added that BJP owes its success during the last seven years to PM Modi and called him the nation’s top leader.
