"Elitist dynastic party...," BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla slams Congress over derogatory remarks on PM Modi
New Delhi: Training his guns at Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla on Sunday called Congress an "elitist dynastic party" over the derogatory remarks made by party president on PM Modi.
The scathing remark comes after Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi terming him a "leader of lies". "Congress is a party of elitist dynastic philosophy and mentality. The question is whereafter the party that talks about love apologizes or do they support such statements made by the party leaders," said Poonawalla while talking to ANI.
Underlining the derogatory statements made by the party in the 2014 and 2016 elections he said that the Congress party used words like "tu chai beech" and "Chaiwala"
"The Congress party cannot fathom that a person who has come from the poorest circumstances has become the Prime Minister and is taking the country to greater heights," said Shehzad Poonawalla.
BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla called out the Congress party for insulting the Prime Minister and said that president Mallikarjun Kharge is acquiring the sentiments of Congress's first family.
"This is not a 'Sahyog' rather this is 'Prayog' and 'Udhyog' of abusing Prime Minister Modi personally. Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge is acquiring the sentiments of congress first family," he said while talking to ANI.
Earlier in the day, the Congress chief accused the BJP and its top leaders of resorting to prevarications in order to gain the sympathy of the people.
Addressing an election rally in Dediapada in Narmada district, Kharge said, "They ask us, especially Modiji and Shah (Amit shah) what the Congress has done in 70 years. If we have not done anything in 70 years then you wouldn't have democracy in the country."
"A person like you (PM Modi) claims to be poor. I am also poor, I am one of the untouchables. People drank your tea, nobody would've had my tea. Then you say that you are poor and somebody abuses you. If you say it for sympathy then people have become smarter now. If you lie once or twice people will hear but how many times will you lie? He's the leader of lies..." (ANI)
