Manmohan Singh, rupee have both turned 'mute': Narendra Modi

Rajkot, Aug. 24 (ANI): Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday continued his attack on Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, and said that the rupee has become mute like the person leading the country.

"In the glorious old times, the rupee was making a lot of noise. But today, it has lost its voice. And similarly, we are unable to hear the voice of our Prime Minister. Both have turned mute," Modi said.

"Today, our currency is on its deathbed. It is in its terminal stage and urgently needs attention of a doctor. ...This government has no cure to improve the condition of a rupee. Central government has no doctor to cure the rupee," he added.

Speaking at a function organised to felicitate him for the creation of Morbi, as a separate district of Rajkot, Modi expressed worry over the continuous toppling value of the Indian currency.

Continuing his ambush on the Congress-led UPA government, Modi said that at the time of coming to power, the present government had promised to reduce inflation within 100 days, but that has did not happen.

Additionally, Modi reiterated that the ruling government was solely to be blamed for the worsening economic climate in the country.

"At present both - rupee and UPA government, have lost their value. Time has come to stop our country from destruction. The Central Government is misguiding the country. People need to know why our country is heading towards destruction," Modi said.

"The (Congress) party should ponder why people are not allowing it to enter Gujarat," he added.

At the function, Modi was weighed in 96 kilograms of silver, which was presented to him by representatives of the Ceramic Association. The Gujarat Chief Minister announced, at the function, that proceeds from the donated silver would be used for building the proposed 'Statue of Unity' monument of Sardar Patel on Narmada river.

Modi, who is also the chief of the BJP election Campaign Committee, in his Independence Day address at Bhuj, attacked Dr. Manmohan Singh on various issues, including the depreciating value of the rupee and the increasingly threatened international attacks along the border with Pakistan and China.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
