Dear Mr Modi,
I never thought that your memory is too short.
In addition to the Oscars for Slumdog and the begging calls at Pakisthan as the ‘action-plan’ for Mumbai Terror, have you forgotten the other successes for which Congress deserves to be applauded?
Just turn south and north to see the wonder-works of the Congress party
-for making Tamilnadu a fiefdom for Karunanidhi & Family
-for allowing the outsourcing of LTTE terror propaganda into Tamilnadu
-and for planting two successful “yes-Madam”
at the Rashtrapathy Bhavan and Nirvachan Sadan!
At his maiden public rally in Thane on Monday, Chief Minister Narendra Modi said the Congress had a big role to play in Slumdog Millionaire sweeping the Oscars.

He said the only way Maharashtra can save itself from the clutches of terrorism, poverty, unemployment, load shedding and farmer suicides is to follow in the steps of Gujarat.
Wearing his trademark half-sleeve khadi Kurta, Modi's speech was in essential a battle cry to vanquish the Congress rule at the Centre, however his target of ridicule was not Sonia Gandhi but Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar. Referring to the remarks made by Pawar during a public meeting at Nashik the day before, Modi said : "Leaders like Pawar and others from the Congress know that to win the election they have to mention my name.

Adding a twist to the war of words between Nationalist Congress Party president Sharad Pawar and Narendra Modi, the Gujarat Chief Minister today said the former had insulted Mahatma Gandhi by equating him (Modi) with the Father of the Nation.
“Modi is a ‘bachcha’ (boy). Pawar has insulted Gandhiji by comparing me with him,” the chief minister said at a public rally here tonight.

Lambasting Congress over its “lack of a credible leader for the top job in the country”, Modi said “Congress doesn’t have even a single leader who is ready to accept the current Prime Minister as leader of the country. How will this country run”.
“Congress is one party which has neither a leader nor a policy,” Modi said.
Modi also ridiculed NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s prime ministerial ‘ambitions’, saying “Pawar has been standing on the pitch for the last 15 years, wanting to become PM. Sometimes he gets out lbw (leg before wicket) and sometimes he gets himself self-out.” “No leader of UPA can aspire to win election without invoking my name at least once a day,” he said, referring to his criticism by Congress leaders.
