Calling Narendra Modi “a master communicator” may seem like a compliment, but according to the Congress party, that’s not how it was meant to be taken.
Congress members are explaining and backing the comments made by their party’s MP, Shashi Tharoor, about India’s Prime Minister Modi.
The All India Congress Committee, or AICC, spokesman, Abhishek Singhvi, insisted that Tharoor’s comments about Modi were not a compliment but were pointing out the “huge hiatus” between what Modi says and what Modi does, as seen on Economic Times.
How else might they know that the Congress’ Tharoor isn’t complimenting the opposing party?
According to India Times, Tharoor explained, “The Prime Minister is very effective in speech-making, comes up with slogans, sound bites, photo ops in quite an unparalleled way. There is no question that we are all seeing a master communicator at work. And that has its merits but it is not enough.”
“After all, the people who voted for Modi thought they were voting for a man of action. So far instead of a man of action, the nation has got a man of words and the real question that comes is when these words get translated into results,” added Tharoor.
Tharoor blatantly states that the BJP and Modi have been “promoting a nakedly bigoted Hindutva agenda.”
Tharoor has been accused of supporting Modi a little too much in the past, and because of this, he was removed as his party’s spokesperson.
While many people have criticized Modi, like Tharoor and his party, Modi still has many people backing him and his policies, believing that he is just as much action as he is words.

Narendra Modi has not commented probably because he and his party are preparing for elections, the Dehli Legislative Assembly and the Rajya Sabha from Jammu and Kashmir, both on February 7.
