In an interview, Prof K Nageshwar said that the Congress should raise policy issues to corner the BJP-led NDA government. He faulted the Congress leader Shashi Tharoor comments on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Tharoor said Narendra Modi did not wear skull cap given by Muslims. Nageshwar stated that a political leader respecting the faith of other religion can be welcomed. Sometimes, a politician cannot accept people’s pleas when he thinks it was against his religion. Nageshwar said that people or leaders should give gifts to the Prime Minister related to his religion.
