Urban Development Minister Kamal Nath on Monday countered the Time Magazine's description of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as an ''underachiever''.
"Everyone has their own opinion. But Time Magazine, first see what is happening in the US and in Europe, and then compare with India," Nath told media personnel.
Earlier, expressing his party's utter displeasure, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari questioned the magazine's logic in arriving at such a "ridiculous view".
"In the past eight years, the UPA government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, has provided political stability, social cohesion, internal amity, economic development and a greater role for India in international affairs. This by no stretch of imagination can be called or characterised or labelled as an underachievement," he said.
