Manmohan links 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' to 'militant' India

Feb 23, 2020 07:45 IST

In a veiled attack on the BJP, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has that nationalism and ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ slogan is being misused to construct a ‘militant and purely emotional’ idea of India that excludes millions of citizens. Addressing a gathering at the launch of a book on Jawaharlal Nehru's works and speeches, the two-time prime minister said that if India is recognised as a vibrant democracy and, if it is considered as one of the important world powers, it was the first prime minister, who should be recognised as its main architect.
