Sibal dares 'Nirantar Virodhi' Modi to debate on any issue

New Delhi, Nov. 1 (ANI): Communications and Information Technology (IT) Minister Kapil Sibal on Friday took potshots at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for repeatedly raising slogans of a 'Congress free India, and challenged him to a debate on any issue of national interest.

"Why to free the country from Congress? What has the Congress done? And today, I challenge Modi for a debate on any issue on any platform and in any language, be it Hindi, English or Gujarati. I challenge him to decide the day, the subject, place and language so that all is clear," Sibal told media here.

"But he will not be able to do so because he has not held any press conference yet then what will he debate with me. Have you heard him in any press conference? He just goes and delivers his speech from the podium," he added.

Modi has so far in his elections speeches issued a call for ousting the Congress, terming the party a 'burden' on the nation. He has also criticized the Congress-led UPA Government's foreign policy. (ANI)
