Narendra Modi's Gujarat model not worth applying nationwide: P Chidambaram
Zee Media Bureau

New Delhi: In yet another attack on Gujarat CM Narendra Modi, Finance minister P Chidambaram on Saturday said that Modi is the chief minister of an average state.

"Gujarat is an average state. It is not the best performing nor worst performing state. It is not fair to say that Gujarat model is worth applying across the country," he said.

Chidambaram added, "If one looks at Modi's rally, one gets an idea of how expensive they are. Modi should reveal the expenditure involved."

He further stated India has received reply from the Swiss government on sharing information regarding black money a week ago. The government is looking at a reply.

Commenting on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's half brother Daljit Singh Kohli's joining the BJP, the finance minister said, "As far as I know PM's half brother has never made a political statement in his life. His joining a party is a non event".

Expressing shock over Yoga guru Baba Ramdev's "honeymoon" comments, Chidambaram said, "Ramdev's comments are shameful. (I am) ashamed that someone can make such comments and a party can embrace him.

Ramdev has sparked off fresh controversy over his remarks that congress vice president Rahul Gandhi visited Dalit homes for “picnics and honeymoons.”
