Markendey Katju took a dig at PM Narendra Modi over his promise of vikas and asserted that his slogan of 'vikas' meant the development of rich and wealthy and not common people. Here his goes his fb post:
"You have got vikas, so why complain ?
I do not know why many Indians keep behaving like cry babies ?
You say you were promised vikas by this Govt. but have not got it.
But has there not been vikas in unemployment, vikas in price rise, vikas in the wealth of the super rich and in the divide between rich and poor, vikas in farmers suicides, vikas in the terrible sufferings of labourers, farmers, traders, and tens of crores of common men and women due to demonetization, vikas in communal incidents, vikas in hunger, child malnutrition, healthcare problems, crime, etc ?
So why do you people complain ? You were only promised vikas by the Great Man, not any particular variety of it, and you believed him, without going into, or asking him to explain, anything deeper, like children following the Pied Piper of Hamelin..
So now that you have got vikas, why keep whining ?"
