New Delhi: Senior Congress leader and former union minister Manish Tewari on Wednesday took potshot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two prominent initatives 'Make in India' and 'Start up India', supposedly linking them with the ongoing unrest in the country.
Tewari, who has recently been appointed as national spokesperson of the Congress, took to Twitter and wrote, “PM chants #MakeinIndia while his government practices Hate in India. PM shouts Start up India his cohorts preach Break up India. This is RSS/BJP's India.”

His remarks, however, did not go down well with many of government's supporters and this is how they reacted:
@ManishTewari Sir,u must have difference of opinion on development agenda but why are u playing politics of dividing the nation.

@ManishTewari if hate against pakistani agents is called hate in india then it clearly shows sick mentality of congress.
