In a remark that is likely to trigger another war of words between BJP and Congress, Gujarat CM Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated the mosquitoes of Bundelkhand region for daring to bite Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi.
Addressing an election rally here, the BJP’s PM candidate, said, “I want to congratulate the mosquitoes as they had dared to bite Shahzade (Rahul), because no one from his family had been tou-ched in the last hundred years. Let alone touching, if anyone said a word against the Gandhi family, its loyalists would not spare him or her.”
Rahul insulted PM, not us: Modi
Rahul Gandhi had said last month at a public meeting that he suffered mosquitoes bites when he was visiting the area in 2009. Modi said Congressmen did not have any sense of responsibility and they continued to be involved in one scam or the other.
He said, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan had visited almost every village in the state and given an account of work done by his government.
