"The prime minister was critical of Pakistan during his election speeches. We are happy to note that he has taken a U-turn by extending the hand of friendship to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Digvijaya Singh said."
Panaji, June 26 - Power has ended Prime Minister Narendra Modi's swagger that he had as an opposition leader and has made him less vocal, Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh said here Thursday.

Digvijaya Singh, who is the party general secretary in charge of Goa, also said that after speaking aggressively against Pakistan, Modi had in fact made a U-turn on the issue.

It is one thing to be making speeches as opposition leader and another thing to govern a country like India, he said.

An opposition leader has become an establishment leader... He has realised this reality. He cannot be vocal about everything now, Digvijaya Singh added.

The former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh is in the state for two days to attend a series of meetings with local party leaders.

He said that Modi, after his victory, was forced to do a U-turn on Pakistan.

The prime minister was critical of Pakistan during his election speeches. We are happy to note that he has taken a U-turn by extending the hand of friendship to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Digvijaya Singh said.

Asked to assess Modi's performance after one month in power, he said it was too early to take a call on the quality of governance.
