NEW DELHI: Training guns on Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA Government, Former Union Minister Arun Shourie accused the former of managing headlines instead of economy, saying that such an approach would not work in the long run.

Speaking at a book launch event yesterday, Shourie also mocked the NDA government by saying that it was nothing but ‘Congress plus cow’.

“There is a clearer belief that managing economy means managing headlines about the economy and this is not really going to work,” Shourie said.

“The way to characterize the policies of the Government is Congress scaled plus a cow,” he added.

He also said that the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) was never as weak as it was now.

“I feel there was never a weaker a PMO as now... There has never been as great a centralisation of functions, not power, of functions in PMO as now,” he said.

Shourie further said that looking at the way economy is being managed, people have started recalling the days of former prime minister Manmohan Singh.

“Doctor Singh (Manmohan Singh) ko log yaad karne lag gaye hain (People have started recalling the days of Manmohan Singh),” he added.
