Faridabad, Haryana, Sept 28 (IBNS): Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Narendra Modi on Friday hit out at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and said the country would like to know that why he became a 'Singham' (lion) to benefit the interest of foreigners and not of India."Only two times you became a Singham.
The first time you became a Singham was at the time of Nuclear Deal and then during FDI in retail," Modi said while addressing a BJP public meeting here.
Modi question the PM: "Why do you not become a Singham for India?""Why does the PM become active whenever there is election in the US? What is the connection?" Modi said.
Linking the economic reforms with Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Modi said: "Why the decision to implement FDI was taken on the second day of Sonia Gandhi's arrival from the US?"Pertinently, ´Singham´ is a Bollywood film where actor Ajay Devgn had played the character of a tough police inspector of the same name.
India on Sept 14 threw open its doors to more foreign investment in retail, aviation and broadcast sectors, while also announcing disinvestment in four state-run industries in moves that were long seen as critical to revive flagging growth and confidence in Asia's third-biggest economy.
The reforms, the came just a day after the government also announced cut to its fuel subsidy bill by announcing hikes in diesel prices and a limit to the number of subsidised LPG cylinders sold to households, were met a huge political backlash.
