PM Modi asks people to follow President Mukherjee’s advice on values


Prime minister Narendra Modi on Thursday appealed to people to follow President Pranab Mukherjee’s message on upholding core civilisational values of diversity, tolerance and plurality.

His appeal, at an election rally in Bihar’s Nawada district, was described as his first reaction to Dadri lynching by India media, but Modi did not make these comments in reference to the lynching of a Muslim man on 28 September.
