World Leaders to Attend Congress Event on Nehru, Modi not Invited

New Delhi, Nov 11: Congress did not spare a chance to insult the ruling BJP by not inviting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a commemorative international conference to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru.

While the invitation was sent to the top leaders across the world, Modi was not invited to the event, the two-day international conference, would be held at Vigyan Bhavan on Nov 17 in the national capital.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Congress party spokesperson Anand Sharma confirmed that PM Modi is missing from the list.

Sharma said that 54 world leaders have been invited for the conference. There are reports said that many of them have given their consent to attend the event.

The decision not to invite Modi clearly showed "tit-for-tat" formula by Congress to insult Modi and his party after Congress reacted strongly on the death Anniversary of Indira Gandhi when Modi did not visit the Shakti Sthal to pay tributes, rather he flagged off Run for Unity event to mark the birth anniversary of Iron Man Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on the same day on Oct 31.

The party was also humiliated when Modi reconstituted the national committee, in which no member from Nehru-Gandhi family found a place, to commemorate the 125th birth anniversary of Nehru, India's first prime minister.

The panel headed by PM Modi have members like Union Home Minister (Rajnath Singh), External Affairs Minister (Sushma Swaraj), Finance Minister (Arun Jaitley), Human Resource Development Minister (Smriti Irani), Culture Minister (Shripad Yesso Naik) and Information and Broadcasting Minister (Prakash Javadekar), Congress Members of Parliament - Mallikarjun Kharge, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Dr Karan Singh - senior journalists and retired bureaucrats.
