People angry with Cong CMs: BJP
Mumbai: Objecting to disruption of Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan's speech in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at an event in Solapur, state Congress said it would not tolerate such incidents in future.
Chavan, who accompanied the PM to Solapur in western Maharashtra for the inauguration of four-laned National Highway Number 9 on Saturday, had to stop speaking during the function as the crowd began to chant Modi's name.
"The suspicion that Modi has dictator's mentality is now coming true," Maharashtra Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said.
"To the date never a Chief Minister was humiliated in the presence of the Prime Minister at any function," he said.
"Modi supporters created disturbance and the PM did not utter a word. This is dangerous for the democracy," the Congress spokesperson said.
"Similar incident happened with Haryana Chief Minister too at a PM's function," Sawant stated.
"Next time, we won't tolerate such incidents. Congress won't keep quiet. Congress opposes not Modi the individual but the Modi mentality," he said.
Meanwhile, Chavan won’t be attending Modi’s function on Thursday.
To say that this country belongs only to Hindus is to reject the Constitution drafted by Dr Ambedkar, he said.
BJP said its government gives due respect to all CMs, including from other parties, but was not responsible for such incidents caused due to public anger.
