SRCC recently has hosted the Gujarat CM in its campus igniting controversy in the national capital where many other students staged protests against Modi.
Despite such protests and hullabaloos in Delhi, Modi indeed had touched the hearts of young students with his "impressive" speech. Now, when the PM has been invited to the same venue, questions raised - will the PM accept the challenge to woo the SRCC students who have already been moved by Modi's speech.
Speaking about invitation to the PM, SRCC Principal PC Jain said that Dr Manmohan Singh is currently busy with the ongoing budget session and the college authorities expect him to give a date during the annual day celebrations.
Facing questions regarding their controversial decision of inviting Modi to their college, the Principal said, To invite Modi is totally the choice of the students. To meet the expectations of students is our duty so no body from the college complained to me about Modi's visit."
"The college has invited many dignitaries like APJ Abdul Kalam, P Chidambaram, Pranab Mukherjee, E Shreedharn and many more in the past. This time our economist PM is expected to speak on economy and growth," he added.
The SRCC invitation to the PM surfaced at a time when Modi and Dr Singh seem to have been busy in countering each other. Recently, Modi has criticised Dr Singh as the "night watchman" of UPA government. Criticising the PM, Modi was quoted as saying, They appointed a night watchman by naming Manmohan Singh as prime minister...the prime minister is nothing but a puppet of the Gandhi family."
In reply to Modi's criticism, Dr Singh said, "Jo garajte hain, woh baraste nahi (Thunder clouds do not bring showers)." Now, it will be interesting to see if the prime minister accept SRCC invitation throwing another challenge to Modi.
