Kamat also said perception of fear got strengthened in the minds of people during mere 30 days of governance under Modi. "If he (Modi) does not improve his behaviour, nature, and style of functioning, people will have to suffer," said Kamat, who is the incharge of Congress in Gujarat, referring to Modi's performance as the prime minister in last one month.
He was speaking at the two-day 'chintan Shivir' (brainstorming session) organised by the Congress, which began yesterday, over the near wipeout of the party in recent Lok Sabha polls. Congress drew a blank in Gujarat, the home state of Modi, with the BJP pocketing all 26 seats in the state.
"It would be unfair to rate the performance or judge any 30-day-old government. We have to certainly give him (Modi) some time... There was a fear that if a person like him (Modi) becomes prime minister, what people of the country will have to face, which has been experienced just in 30 days (sic)," Kamat said without elaborating.
