Asserting his unquestioned authority in the office PM Narendra Modi had blamed Sonia Gandhi for “running PMO unconstitutionally” is a simple signal to the common man of the country that he is holding the fort in this government and not working on remote control.
Various allegations by former bureaucrats and politicians raised objections over the functioning of PMO during Manmohan Singh’s regime but Congress defended the charges strongly saying, the controversies have been created to make publications more popular.
This statement is also a strong message to the RSS. BJP required their help for approaching Assembly elections of various states but not at the cost of credibility of Prime Minister Office. BJP wants to take help maintaining fair distance therefore the example of Sonia Gandhi running the Manmohan’s Government is a straight and clear indication that PMO would not function on the dictates of anyone but their views would be honoured in the decision making at lower level.
