“The Indian media is no less than anyone. It should not give importance to what the foreign media writes about India or the prime minister,” Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi told reporters.
“The Indian media is concerned about national interest, not the foreign media,” he said. Recently, a critical report on the prime minister in Washington Post had invited angry reactions from the government.
Before that, Time magazine had termed Manmohan Singh as an under-achiever.
