Congress hints at action against Janardan Dwivedi for pro-Modi remark............

NEW DELHI: Congress on Thursday came out strongly against senior leader Janardan Dwivedi for his pro-Modi remarks and hinted that action will be taken against him. 

"Narendra Modi can never be a symbol of Indian-ness," Congress leader Ajay Maken said referring to Janardan Dwivedi's reported praise on Modi. 

He cited the various controversies surrounding Modi including the Gujarat riots, to buttress his point. 

"We cannot allow any individual to change the ideological stand of Congress party," Maken said.

Hinting at party action against the senior leader, Maken said, " a decision on disciplinary action against Janardan Dwivedi will be taken by Congress high command." 

Senior Congress leader Janardan Dwivedi had on Wednesday stirred a controversy by appearing to be gushing in his praise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an interview which he later claimed quoted him out of context. 

Dwivedi, Congress general secretary, was quoted by a web portal as saying that Modi has started a "new era." 

"Modi has been successful in convincing people that from a social point of view, he is closest to Indian citizens. His is a victory of Indianness", Dwivedi was quoted in the interview as saying.
