New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs has strongly objected to the remarks made by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in the Comment About Indian MPs. This comment has been termed unnecessary by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs. Singapore’s High Commissioner Simon Wong has been summoned regarding the statement of the PM. Singapore PM Lee Hsien Loong praised the first Prime Minister of India (Jawaharlal Nehru) for strengthening democracy. Also mentioned the criminal cases registered against the sitting Indian MPs. Participating in the Parliament of Singapore, PM Lee Hsien Loong said that politics in the world is changing and people’s confidence in the political class is decreasing. While speaking on the topic of how democracy should work in the country, Loong also referred to Jawaharlal Nehru. Loong said Nehru’s India has become one where rape and murder charges are pending against half the MPs in the Lok Sabha. However, it is also said that many of these allegations are politically motivated. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, speaking on democracy, said that leaders who fight for and win freedom are often extraordinary individuals with tremendous courage, great culture and outstanding potential. They overcame difficulties and emerged as leaders of people and nations. David Ben-Gurion, Jawaharlal Nehru are such leaders. The Congress quickly took a jibe at Lee’s remarks, saying that while the first Indian PM continues to inspire world leaders, PM Modi defames them inside and outside Parliament. The generosity of Pandit Nehru continues to inspire world leaders even today.
