New Delhi: Though the Congress asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to snap out of his elections rhetoric phase, former minister and party`s Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor on Thursday coined a new version of the `NaMo alphabet` reminding everyone of the vitriolic LS polls campaign.
Tharoor`s post on Twitter read, “New NaMo alphabet? A for achhe din; B for bitter pill; C for cave-in rollback; D for disempowered Ministers; E for excuses; F for fuel price rise (sic).”

On completing a month in office, PM wrote a blog where he thanked the people for the support and affection and said that every decision that his government had taken had been guided solely by national interest.

Congress leaders lampooned his blog and said that PM needed to come out of election rhetoric. Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad said, “Modi should come out of rhetoric now. The election campaign is over. The nation is laughing.”

He also said that the PM was blowing his own trumpet. “He is calling his government the best after Independence. He did not even consider Vajpayee`s government,” Ahmad said.

Another Congress leader Anand Sharma said that writing a blog was not equal to governing, ANI reported.
