Hitting out at the Congress, the BJP, on Saturday, said that abusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi has become a ”new normal” for the grand old party.
The Congress has completed a century of abuses against the PM, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, adding the people of Gujarat and the rest of the country would now give a befitting response to the party.
”The people will now finish this party in a democratic way through the EVM…one who abuses can’t be big but one who gives vaccines during Covid ought to be big,” he said at a media briefing.
“The manner in which top leaders of the Congress party are repeatedly using language and abuses for PM Modi is being seen on TV every day. In such a situation, Congress has established itself as a party of abusers. Congress leaders called Modi ji ‘lowly’, ‘Yamraj’ and whatnot. In this way, Congress leaders have completed 100 abuses. It reflects their thinking,” he said.
Patra noted that a Congress leader from Karnataka has now called the PM ‘Bhasmasur’ while Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge recently called him ‘Ravan’. Former Congress President Sonia Gandhi had even called Modi a ‘Maut ka Saudagar’ (Merchant of Death), he recalled.
Referring to US President Joe Biden’s statement that he stood with his “friend” Modi as India took over the G-20 presidency, Patra said on the one hand the world was standing with the Indian leader while on the other, the Congress was using such language for him. “This is sad and worrisome,” the BJP spokesperson added.
He also attacked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of trying to project a lie as the truth. Just a few days back, Kejriwal said that Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has got a clean chit and that there was no scam in the excise policy.
He wondered why Sisodia and many other accused have changed mobile phones dozens of times, saying the common man never changed mobile phones so quickly.
