New Delhi: A day after senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj once again raked up the issue of Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s foreign origin, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Friday sought to differ from her views.
In a meeting here with party president Rajnath Singh, Modi is reported to have expressed his displeasure over Sushma’s actions.
Modi, who is BJP’s prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 General Elections, is reported to have told Rajnath the foreign issue no more holds significance.
Instead, the party should focus on issues like corruption, sources quoted Modi as telling Rajnath.
Congress has also dismissed as “very, very immature” Sushma Swaraj’s remarks on Sonia Gandhi’s foreign origin, saying the Congress chief can become Prime Minister “tomorrow if the party decides” and she doesn’t need anybody else’s approval.
Speaking to reporters yesterday, Sushma had said that she was still opposed to the idea of Sonia becoming the Prime Minister.
