NEW DELHI: The Congress Party on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi would do well to travel across India more, rather than going on frequent tours abroad. 

“I think the PM must focus on domestic tours, must focus on the deprived, he must meet farmers, and their families who lost their lives and committed suicide. He needs to know more about India and I think a little more Bharat Darshan for the PM would be useful, because being an NRI PM is not enough. He needs to focus on domestic policies and India,” Congress leader Tom Vadakkan told ANI.

Commenting on Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal’s tweet on Narendra Modi, Vadakkan said Kejriwal should focus on important issues like dengue and the Somnath Bharti case.

“What the AAP chief says or doesn’t say is not our focus. He should focus on issues in Delhi, especially on dengue and what he intends to do about Somnath Bharti,” he added.
