New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Shashi Tharoor on Friday backed Jairam Ramesh's remarks on PM Modi saying that 'demonising' him is wrong. 

Speaking at a book launch on Wednesday, former Union minister Ramesh had said Modi's governance model was “not a complete negative story”, adding that not recognising his work and demonising him all the time was not going to help.

“If you are going to demonise him (PM Modi) all the time, you are not going to be able to confront him,” said Ramesh.

“He talks in a language that connects him with the people. Unless we recognise that he is doing things which people recognise and which have not been done in the past, we are not going to be able to confront this guy,” said former union minister. 

Abhishek Singhvi supported Jairam Ramesh and said that he is the Prime Minister of the country and demonising him is wrong.      

“Always said demonising #Modi wrong. No only is he #PM of nation, a one way opposition actually helps him. Acts are always good, bad and indifferent--they must be judged issue wise and not person wise. Certainly, #ujjawala scheme is only one amongst other good deeds. #Jairamramesh,” tweeted Singhvi.  

Shashi Tharoor also backed Ramesh and said PM Modi should be praised whenever he says or does the right thing. 

“As you know, I have argued for six years now that Narendra Modi should be praised whenever he says or does the right thing, which would add credibility to our criticisms whenever he errs. I welcome others in opposition coming around to a view for which I was excoriated at the time!” tweeted Tharoor.
