Launching yet another scathing attack on BJP's Indian prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, Union Finance Minister, Palaniappan Chidambaram said he suffered from a character flaw. Addressing a news conference in Vadodara in Gujarat on Sunday, Chidambaram said Modi used to call former Chief Election Commissioner James Michael Lyngdoh with his complete name to draw special attention towards his religion. Chidambaram said "I remember in the state assembly elections, Mr. Narendra Modi used to refer to the Chief Election Commissioner, we have always called him Mr. Lyngdoh, but in meeting after meeting he used to call him Mr. James, Michael Lyngdoh and what he is trying to do? What is the relevance of calling him James Michael Lyngdoh. I have known him in Delhi, he has worked with hundreds of ministers and civil servants in Delhi, nobody calls him James Michael Lyngdoh, and they call him Mr. Lyngdoh. The idea was to draw attention to his religion. That is a character flaw,"
