"Modi's support and his winning was more like a hot-air balloon," said Salman Khurshid, the minister of external affairs under the previous Indian National Congress government, which lost to Mr. Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party. "It's lost pressure as time passed. They have support from the people, but it is also true that it's eroding very fast."
"We have been faulted in the last few months of not being adequately a doing government. Now the time has come that we are doing something, and we hope that everybody who cares for this country and the new generation will join in," Law Minister Salman Khurshid said Friday.
