JAIPUR: At a time when the Congress leaders are busy making scathing attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi after his recent announcement of 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' campaign, Vishwendra Singh, Rajasthan state tourism minister and an ex-royal from Bharatpur princely state, has come out open to support the PM for launching this ambitious campaign.
In his tweet, Singh said, "Fail to fathom the protest against AtmanirbharBharat. Countries around the world have made themselves self sufficient. Why shouldn't India do the same? I for one wholeheartedly support this initiative by PM narendramodi. Time to think beyond pettypolitics."
Meanwhile, state BJP president Satish Poonia welcomed his statement and retweeted this tweet. Further, he replied saying," vishvendrabtp ji surely if all people representatives like you stand united in support of the spirit of nation first, then narendramodi ji's AtmaNirbharBharatAbhiyan will soon attain success and India will lead the world by becoming world guru again."
Replying to Poonia, Singh said, "We always stand dedicated to create a self-sufficient India, the country always stands first for us. My ancestors gave up their Bharatpur princely state to a united and independent India on one call of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel." (IANS)
