India's BJP leader Narendra Modi, whom opinion polls project as likely to become India's next prime minister, Tuesday voiced disapproval of hate speeches by "well-wishers", saying such "petty statements" deviate from the campaign issues of development and good governance. A day after a huge controversy was kicked up by Vishwa Hindu Parishad chief Pravin Togadia's anti-Muslim statements, Modi, an avid tweeter, posted two tweets conveying his disapproval.
