India’s secular fabric under threat: Manmohan Singh


New Delhi: Criticising his successor Narendra Modi for pursuing “his own interests”, former prime minister and Congress leader Manmohan Singh said here on Saturday that “secular values of the country are in danger”.

“Secular values of the country are in danger under the present regime,” Singh said while addressing a mammoth gathering at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium here.

“Wherever he (Modi) goes, he pursues his own interests,” he added.

Singh said India is a country where people of all faiths live and the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance government is trying to undermine the secular character of the country by trying to impose its repressive thoughts on others.

“There are powers trying to divide people. If they succeed they would harm the nation in a big way,” Singh said, hinting at the Dadri lynching and a section of society asking others not to eat beef.

The former prime minister was speaking at a function organised by the Congress to mark the 125th birth anniversary of the country’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

Singh also asked the party workers to take the values, which Nehru stood for, to the people once again and save the country from divisive forces.
