Who is anti national? Congress too joins debate

New Delhi: The Congress too joined the debate on Saturday on who is anti-national, with its senior leader P Chidambaram asserting any one defending the demoneti­sation is “anti-national.” In a tweet, he said: “29 months after demonetisation, if anyone defends DeMo, we can only conclude he or she is anti-national.” In a series of tweets, he said: “PM defends demonetisation and that sole ground is sufficient to throw out the BJP.” “No economist with any reputation has said a good word about demonetisation. The world of economists has condemned DeMo,” Chidambaram said. He underlined: “DeMo derails the economy. DeMo killed thousands of MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises). DeMo destroyed lakhs of jobs.”

PC tweeted “Mr Modi’s style of spea­k­ing has a name—illeism—a little kno­wn word as it is a trait found only in a fe people.” He said: “Is illeism abnormal is a question discussed in many research papers. It is certainly unusual if not abnormal.”  Illeism is derived from a Latin word to depict an act of referring to oneself in the third person instead of first person. PC asked: “Does not Mr Modi have anything to say except talk about himself? How many times will Mr Modi utter his own name in an election speech?” The Modi-centric rhetoric of Modi is getting too tiresome and boring, he added.
