I don't want the country to take a pity on the basis of my humble background. I do not think I would like to enter in any competition with Prime Minister Modi Ji on this particular matter: Former PM Manmohan Singh on why he doesn't talk about his background like PM Modi

Nothing is gained as often attempted by Modi ji to pit the two great leaders (Pandit Nehru and Sardar Patel) of power (against each other): Former PM Manmohan Singh

# I invoke memories of more than 100 people who lost their lives while standing in queues as a result of demonetisation. I say with immense pain & a sense of deep responsibility that the 8th of November was a black day for our economy & democracy: Manmohan Singh in Surat Gujarat
