Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, today, hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating that he was wasting energy by talking about his family and isn’t focusing on issues like drought, farmers and unemployment.
Strongly refuting prime minister’s comment that he is having `family issues, Pawar said that the PM doesn’t know ‘how to run a family’ and that’s the reason he keeps peeping in others’ homes.
He added that previously he wanted to ask Modi as to why he was interested in his domestic issues but it was then it dawned on him that the ‘PM had no family’.
“Modi Ji says ‘Pawar Sahab is a good man but has family issues. His nephews are out of his hands.’ I wanted to ask him what does he have to do with issues at my home? But then I realised I’ve my wife, daughter; son-in-law, nephews visit us, but he has no one,” he added.
The former deputy prime minister further said that he could tell a lot more things but didn’t want to stoop to a low-level.
