“Modi used an event like Independence Day for making a political speech and attack Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Congress party. He should apologise,” he said

The BJP stalwart, in his speech, challenged Singh to a public debate on governance and slammed him for India's "weak and feeble" response to provocations from Pakistan and China.

Reddy, however, welcomed BJP veteran LK Advani's statement that on a day like Independence Day leaders should not be critical of others. The Congress leader described Modi as "a corporate Chief Minister" and alleged that the BJP leader protects the interests of industrialists and ignores the plights of the poor and farmers in Gujarat.
