altJehlum Post News Network/New Delhi/June 9, 2015/Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a "more adept salesman, event manager and communicator than me", his predecessor Manmohan Singh said Tuesday  as Congress president Sonia Gandhi made a pitch for improved communication to shore up the party's fortunes. "I have to acknowledge that my successor has been a more adept salesman, event manager and communicator than me," Singh, who was often mocked by Modi as "Maun (silent) mohan Singh, said addressing a Congress Chief Ministers' conclave. Singh, who was Prime Minister for 10 years, said the UPA story should not be lost because of inadequate communication.

Earlier, in her inaugural address to the conclave, Sonia said one of the lessons learnt from the last Lok Sabha election was the need for better communication and marketing."One of the lessons we have learned from the last election is that we need to vastly improve our communications and marketing skills,particularly in an era of rapidly changing technology," she said. "We can have great accomplishments but they have to reach the people. The Party organisation, of course, is the primary instrument for such dissemination and propagation," she said. Gandhi told the Chief Ministers that their administration and the party organisation have to work cohesively with each other. "As Chief Ministers you have a special responsibility to ensure that party workers are motivated and enthused to become champions of the achievements of the governments you run," she added. Lack of proper communication by the top Congress leadership was seen as one of the prime reasons for the party's Lok Sabha debacle despite the UPA government introducing people-friendly measures like MNREGA and food security law.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
