Modi must take history lessons and classes with top BJP leaders: Digvijay Singh
Raipur – Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh took a dig at Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Tuesday for making historical and geographical mistakes in his speeches.
He said Modi needed to take a few lessons and classes in history with top BJP leaders.
“I am surprised that BJP didn’t find anyone with any knowledge of history to be their PM candidate. Narendra Modi must take a few classes in history with top leaders of BJP,” Singh said.
“If he becomes prime minister and talks the same way at the UN too, what will happen to our respect?,” he asked.
Recently in his speech Modi referred to Shyama Prasad Mookherjee instead of Shyamaji Krishna Varma.
Modi said, “Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was a revolutionist. He died in 1930. His last wish was that his ashes should be brought to India after independence, and till then, it was in Geneva.”
However, according to reports, the Jan Sangh founder died in 1953, not in London, but in Gujarat.
Modi later apologised for his mistake saying, “I wanted to refer to Shyamaji Krishna Varma not Shyama Prasad Mookherjee. I apologise for my mistake.”
