This verbal sparring comes after NCP (SP) chief Sharad Pawar aimed for PM Modi's style of governance, accusing him of focusing more on fault-finding than highlighting his government's achievements over the past decade. Pawar even drew comparisons between Modi and previous Prime Ministers, emphasizing their efforts in nation-building compared to what he perceived as Modi's penchant for criticism.

Pawar underscored the significance of recognizing the contributions of former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, underscoring his lasting impact on India's development. Nevertheless, he expressed disappointment that PM Modi consistently directed his criticism towards Nehru rather than showcasing the achievements of the Central government during his tenure, reported TOI.

Drawing from his extensive experience with various Prime Ministers, Pawar highlighted the dedication of leaders like Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Narasimha Rao, and Manmohan Singh to the nation's progress. In contrast, he criticized PM Modi for seemingly fixating on criticism instead of highlighting the government's accomplishments over the past decade.

Accusing PM Modi of fostering fear among the public, Pawar drew parallels between Modi's actions and those of Russian President Vladimir Putin, raising concerns about the emergence of a similar authoritarian leadership style in India.
