NEW DELHI : Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Saturday came under heavy fire for his remarks that plans for Muslims must have the first claim on resources, with the BJP and its chief ministers condemning it as having communal overtones.

“Such a statement does not behave a senior leader like the Prime Minister. It is unfortunate,” Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi said after the conclusion of the NDC meeting. 

Similar statements were uttered by Madhya Pradesh and Chhatisgarh chief ministers Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Raman Singh respectively. While Chouhan said that the Prime Minister’s statement was not only inappropriate but is dangerous also. 


“This is very unfortunate, appalling for a Prime Minister to say so,” BJP chief Rajnath Singh said separately.
