M. Veerappa Moily, Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, has said that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is unfit to be in the national politics of a secular country.

He told presspersons here on Saturday that Mr. Modi had revealed his true colours by telling that he was a “Hindu nationalist.” Mr. Moily said the National Democratic Alliance had lost most of its allies while the United Progressive Alliance had “strong leaders” such as Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and Manmohan Singh. He expressed confidence that the UPA would get a third term.
