By talking about PM Modi’s skin colour, is Congress suggesting he’s racially inferior to Rahul?

For Prime Minister Narendra Modi, getting abuse hurled at him from the Congress Party is nothing new. BJP President Amit Shah makes here a short list of all the abuses that he could remember, directed towards PM Modi:

What is worse is that a lot of jibes against the Prime Minister have revolved around his humble origins as a tea seller and his OBC caste background. The most (in)famous of these is probably Mani Shankar Aiyar’s “chaiwala” remarks from early 2014. But other senior leaders of the Congress have done just as well, such as Ghulam Nabi Azad calling him a Gangu Teli, an obvious reference to Modi belonging to the Ghanchi (Teli) caste.

The NSUI has often gone a step further, with posters such as this, leaving absolutely no room for imagination.

And of course, Sonia ji and Priyanka ji have been referring to Modi as “neech” for a while now. For mysterious reasons, Mani Shankar Aiyar has recently earned himself a suspension from the Congress Party for repeating this slur that the Congress top bosses have been using for years.

After jibes on his caste and humble economic background, the youth Congress magazine recently took potshots at Modi for possibly mispronouncing English words. There is no “humor” or satire in this graphic posted by them except saying that those who aren’t very comfortable in English should stick to selling tea. They shouldn’t dream of becoming Prime Minister of India and rubbing shoulders with other world leaders.

In Congress circles, this is supposed to be funny.

I guess a racist jibe had to be coming too. Clearly, the Congress Party did not want to leave this box unchecked.

Except that this hardly seems like a laughing matter. What does it mean when the leader you are fighting for is racially half white and you end up talking about the skin color of his principal opponent?

The Congress’ top leadership consisting of Sonia ji, Rahul ji and Priyanka ji are all either white or half white. Their main challenger Modi ji is not. And you say that apparently Modi ji is taking special mushrooms to whiten his skin color?

What other meaning does this have? Is the Congress Party suggesting that the PM is somehow inferior to Rahul ji because Modi does not have white parents?

So far, the Prime Minister has not responded to this latest jibe on his racial origin. I guess he is taking the high road. Remember Michelle Obama’s words “when they go low, we go high”?

But I am not as generous as the Prime Minister. We can’t let this pass. The Congress has mocked Narendra Modi for being born poor, for being born in a “lower” caste and now they have mocked him for being born with dark skin unlike their top leaders. I am going to throw a taunt at the Dynasty and its sycophants where it hurts them the most.

Tell me, Congress folks, how do you feel when dark Narendra Modi is seen rubbing shoulders with white world leaders? Does it hurt? Does it hurt you deeply? Good.
