Modi more adept salesman than me: Manmohan

Hitting out at incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his predecessor Manmohan Singh on Tuesday said that Modi has been “a more adept salesman, event manager and communicator than me.” Singh tore into the Narendra Modi government’s claims on economic revival, he said, “There is somewhat of euphoria that our GDP growth since 2014-15 has started accelerating once again. But doubts have been expressed both within and outside Government about the validity of the new GDP numbers.” Singh while addressing the meeting of the Chief Ministers of the Congress-ruled states in the Capital also said, “I have to acknowledge that my successor has been a more adept salesman, event manager and communicator than me,” he added.

In comparison, the UPA, Singh said, had achieved a 7.5% annual economic growth, which made possible its “stellar performance on social sectors”.
