Two days after Congress leader Shashi Tharoor praised Modi's speech, on Tuesday, another party leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi lauded his speech on terrorism.

According to Zee News report, Singhvi was quoted as saying, "I entirely agree and I don't think that anybody can disagree with PM's statement; this is absolutely correct, you cannot have colors and shades of terrorism, original causes of terrorism, or justifiable motives for terrorism. Terrorism is a per se no go area, it is non-negotiable."

"It's a good thing if it gets converted into solid, hard facts and reality for India. Its good if it gets converted into solid, hard, real, ground real FDI investment, US dollars, import of technology, new manufacturing set ups. It can't be objected and we will off course judge all things not by words or breakfast but by concrete results and we are happy that if any of our initiatives is taken forward and made stronger," Singhvi further said.

On Monday, while addressing the Council of Foreign Relations, Modi said that terrorism was not homegrown but being exported to India.

"We are bothered by terrorism... it has been exported to our country, it is not home grown. Terrorism is the enemy of humanity and anyone who believes in humanity should come together to challenge the great danger of humanity, he said.

"We have suffered for 40 years from the effects of terrorism, it is such a deformity that we can't imagine. And when we see it on TV that a journalist's throat is being slit, and that in the 21st century such a heinous crime is being committed in front of us... and till we don't challenge it... we have to believe in humankind, we have to go together, terrorism is the enemy of humanity and anyone who believes in humanity needs to come together to combat terrorism," he added.

He also said all countries needed to overcome their divisions to combat the challenge of terrorism, and for that there was only one way -- that the world should understand the danger of terrorism and those who believe in humanity should join hands.

Yesterday, Congress spokesperson Shashi Tharoor had praised Modi on Twitter saying, "Strong speech by @PMOIndia at #UNGA2014. Soaring internationalism, support for democracy & environment, anti-terrorism. Good reply to Pak."

This is not the first time that Tharoor, who is a party spokesperson, has praised Modi.

In June, Congress had distanced itself from Tharoor's praise of Modi that had appeared on a US news website in which he had, among other things, also remarked that Modi was looking to turn himself from a "hate figure into an avatar of modernity and progress".
