New Delhi:
Former prime minister Manmohan Singh has written a letter to President Ram Nath Kovind in which he has condemned Prime MinisterNarendra Modi's 'threat' to the Indian National Congress (INC) during a speech in Hubli, Karnataka.
Singh said Prime Minister Modi was "using his powers and privileges as Prime Minister to settle personal and political scores" during the Karnataka elections.
On May 6, Prime Minister Modi in a public rally in Hubli said: "Congress ke neta kan khol karke sun lijiye, agar seemao ko paar karoge, to ye Modi hai, lene ke dene pad jayenge (Congress leaders listen to me while having your ears wide open. If you cross limits, I am Modi, you will have to pay consequences.)"
Dr Singh said Prime Minister Modi's words were "menacing and intimidating with intent to insult and provoke breach of peace".
"We would like to state that neither the party nor our leaders will be cowed down by such threats," Singh added.
Throughout the letter, Singh asked the President to "caution" Prime Minister Modi against using "unwarranted, threatening and intimidating language" against anyone.
Apart from Singh, the letter was signed by Leaders of Opposition of both houses of Parliament and senior Congress leaders like P. Chidambaram, Ashok Gehlot, Ambika Soni, Mukul Wasnik, Motilal Vora, Kamal Nath and Ahmed Patel.
