Congress threatens to hit back at PM Modi from foreign soil

Demanding an apology from the Prime Minister, who while speaking at at an event in Canada yesterday accused the previous governments of creating a "mess" in the country, the opposition party said Modi should realise that he represents the country and not RSS or BJP when he goes abroad.
      
"It shows his sick mentality. He has again broken the tradition of not taking domestic politics abroad and has again made malicious attacks on previous governments.
   
"We cannot tolerate such unbecoming behaviour any longer. Henceforth, if he again does so on foreign soil, a Congress leader or spokesman will be present there and will respond immediately," party spokesman Anand Sharma told reporters.
  
He replied in the negative when asked if it would not precipatate matters between the two sides and said it would help bring "balance".
    
"The Prime Minister should apologise. We have honoured the convention so far. The Prime Minister should realise that he goes abroad as the Prime Minister of the country and not as a 'Pracharak' of the BJP and RSS," the spokesperson said.
