After Modi’s rap, Manmohan hits back

Singh and Modi have been engaged in a war of words of late with both leaders taking jibes at each other at various forums. Singh also sought to woo minorities by spotlighting their increased
share in jobs, loans and welfare schemes during the UPA regime besides highlighting various programmes his government has taken to address social and economic backwardness of Muslims.

Addressing a conference of state minority commissions, he said India’s strength lies in unity and warned against divisive forces. ‘For India as a country, secularism has been a way of life practiced over centuries. We should be cautious of people who work against India’s secular thought by attempting to redefine secularism. We should be vigilant against forces that seek to exploit our diversity in religion, language and culture to divide out society,’ he said while addressing a conference of state minority commissions in the capital.
