Choose words carefully: Pawar to PM

Mumbai, Jan 6 : Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Monday made a veiled attack on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his comments on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

"I always choose my words carefully while commenting on an ally or an opponent. Whether you support someone or not, you must be careful when speaking in public," Pawar said.

However, Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari defended Singh and said: "I respect what Mr. Pawar and what he said. But the PM spoke the truth."

Launching a scathing attack on his rival, Singh on Jan 3 said Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India from the BJP would be disastrous for the country.

"It would be disastrous for the country to have Narendra Modi as Prime Minister," said the PM in his much touted press conference.

He said Modi is "someone who has presided over a mass massacre".

He said he never believed he was a weak Prime Minister and historians will judge his tenure and then again attacked Modi saying that if strength means supervising the massacres on the streets of Ahmedabad then he does not need that strength.

The PM also ended his press conference saying what Modi is saying would not materialize.
