Hitting out at the Centre, Chidambaram, who spoke on the Union Budget at a programme organised by the party here, alleged the Modi government was like a helpless doctor who failed to diagnose the illness of a patient and treat him effectively.
“Altogether, the bottomline is we have a patient who is extremely ill. Doctor has proved himself incompetent. Diagnosis of the doctor is hopelessly wrong,” the former union finance minister said.
“Not having diagnosed the illness of the patient, the doctor is helpless.
The least the doctor can do is to say…I am sorry. We made mistake, will Dr Manmohan Singh come and advise us,” he said.
