Deeply pained and anguished by canards spread by PM Modi: Manmohan Singh

Congress accuses EC of acting like BJP's 'puppet', as PM Modi holds 'roadshow'

Pakistan's former foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri on Wednesday expressed anguish for being unnecessarily dragged into Indian politics by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that even the word "Gujarat" was not mentioned by anyone at a private dinner in New Delhi.

Hours after that meeting, Manmohan Singh surfaced with a video message for PM Modi. He blamed that Manmohan Singh along with the others were planning a conspiracy and that Pakistan was trying to influence the Gujarat assembly elections.

He said the Prime Minister should apologise to the nation for "falsehoods and canards".

Among others who attended the dinner include former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, former vice president Hamid Ansari, Pakistan High Commisioner, former foreign minister K Natwar Singh, former Army Chief Deepak Kapoor, former diplomats Salman Haider, Satinder Lambah, TCA Raghavan, Sharat Sabharwal, Chinmaya Gharekhan and senior journalists including Prem Shankar Jha and Rahul Khushwant Singh.

"I sincerely hope that he will apologize to the nation for his ill thought transgression to restore the dignity of the office he occupies", the economist-turned politician said.

Tennessee children's Christmas performance of manger scene goes viral
A two-year-old dressed as a sheep chose to snatch the baby Jesus doll and carry it to the other side of the little stage. Benson said the video is amusing but also touches on the true meaning of Christmas.

Manmohan Singh said the Congress needed no sermons on nationalism from the Bharatiya Janata Party and a Prime Minister whose "compromised track record in fighting terrorism is well known".

Shah asked why Singh was not angry and anguished when Modi was called Maut Ka Saudagar" (merchant of death) or "neech'.

"The discussion was confined to India-Pakistan relations", he added. Why did he not consider it appropriate to apprise GoI about such a meeting with a neighbour like Pakistan.

"Why did he try to hide it?" Manmohan Singh released a statement demanding an apology from the PM. We just want to ask him whether he was so angry when monumental loot & plunder was happening under his watch?
