Baloda Bazar (Chhattisgarh) [India]: After Prime Minister Narendra Modi called Congress leader Rahul Gandhi ‘Moorkhon Ke Sardar’, the latter on Wednesday hit back at the PM and said that he is unconcerned about the derogatory words the former makes against him.
Rahul Gandhi, while addressing a public rally in Baloda Bazar of poll-bound Chhattisgarh, said that the abuses do not make any difference to him as his only aim is to help the poor.
‘Wherever PM Modi comes he abuses me…it’s good, I am unconcerned, I don’t care. I have already told you my goal, which is to provide the same amount of money to the poor that PM Modi gives to Adani. I am counting, you (PM Modi) gives one Rupee to Adani, I will give one Rupee to the poor…’ the Wayanad MP said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi without taking his name and mocked the Wayanad MP calling him ‘Murkhon Ke Sardar’ after the latter’s claim on the dominance of ‘Made in China’ mobile phones in India.
The PM took a swipe at the Congress and said that the leaders of the party have this mental disease of not recognising the achievements of their own countrymen.
‘One wise leader of the Congress said yesterday that everyone in India has ‘Made in China’ mobile phones. Arre Murkhon ke Sardar, (the leader of stupid people) in which world do you live! The leaders of the Congress have this mental disease of not recognising the achievements of their own countrymen,’ the PM said.
He further said that he ‘wondered’ which foreign lens the Congress leaders use as they are absolutely clueless about what is happening in the country.
‘The leaders of the Congress are flying so high that they can’t see the poor on the ground and are also clueless about the ground realities,’ the Prime Minister said.
