Congress slams Modi over 'Italian' remark on Sonia

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Jan 29: The Congress on Friday, Jan 29, slammed Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi for saying that he would write a letter to UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi in Italian on the price rise issue.

Reacting strongly to Modi's remarks, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said, "Narendra Modi has lost it."

"Only Modi can make such a preposterous statement. I cannot possibly dignify such a statement with a reaction," Tewari added.

On Thursday, Jan 28, Modi had said, "I have written number of letters to Central Government on the issue of price rise. I have written letters in the language they can understand urging them to take steps to do something about the rising prices of food items."

"But, I think that they have no empathy for the poor people and it seems that they are not willing to take steps to control rising prices," he had said, adding, "Now, I need to write a letter in Italian."
