EC must act, give notice to Modi: Sibal on PM's Rajasthan speech

Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his ‘Congress will redistribute wealth’ remarks, Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Sibal on Monday said political discourse had never sunk to such a low in India’s history and urged the Election Commission to take action in the matter.


Sibal’s attack came a day after Prime Minister Modi suggested that if the Congress comes to power, it would redistribute wealth of people to Muslims and cited former PM Manmohan Singh’s remark that the minority community had the first claim on the country’s resources.

“After the PM’s speech, crores of people will be disappointed. Probably no other prime minister has given such a statement since 1950. The speech points out that our minorities who have been living in India for years are infiltrators. What kind of politics is this?” Sibal said at a press conference here.
