‘Is this what happens when you’re on POT?’ Congress mocks PM Modi’s ‘TOP’ comment

SNS | New Delhi |

Congress social media head and Karnataka leader Divya Spandana, popularly known as Ramya, on Sunday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi wondering if he was on “pot” after his massive rally in Bengaluru.

PM Modi spoke at the Parivartana Yatra rally on Sunday when he came up with the acronym ‘TOP’ to describe tomatoes, onion and potato.

“The farmers who grow vegetables and fruits like tomatoes, onions and potatoes are also top priority for us. Take T from tomato, O from Onion and P from Potato, you get TOP. We are starting ‘Operation Greens’ which help farmers produce the vegetables,” Modi had said.

Ms Divya Spandana’s swipe came following PM Modi’s comment as she tweeted, “Is this what happens when you’re on POT?”

The comment didn’t go down well with the Bharatiya Janata Party as the party atrocious and “insult” to the masses.

The BJP hit back at Ms Divya Spandana for her choice of words with party spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao tweeting, “Most people of the country and our party members won’t even know what you are referring to (including PM himself) but your Leader will connect with it instantly. While you have insulted people of India with your atrocious comment, your leader will be proud of you!!”

The Congress had suspended Mr Aiyar from the party for his “neech” (lowly) jibe at PM Modi during the Gujarat Assembly polls.
