One-upping the Congress leaders’ habit of using foul language against the Prime Minister, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam today raised his ante by referring to Prime Minister Modi as ‘illiterate and uncouth’.
Jo bachhe school, college mein padh rahe hain woh Modi jaise unpadh-gawaar ke baare mein jaan kar unko kya milne wala hai? Yeh bahut sharmnaak baat hai ki aaj tak humare desh ke nagrik aur bacchhon ko pata hi nahi hai ki PM ki degree kitni hai? Sanjay Nirupam, Congress in Mumbai pic.twitter.com/ugUHHvukm8

Questioning PM Modi’s educational degrees, Nirupam said, ‘those kids who are studying in schools and colleges, what will they gain by studying about the illiterate and uncouth PM Modi? It is extremely shameful that the citizens and children of our country do not know the educational qualification of our Prime Minister.’ Nirupam has also objected to screening of documentary of PM Modi for school children.
This is not the first time Nirupam used derogatory language for elected leaders. Earlier he had tweeted a sexist tweet on Smriti Irani after the fake news circular was withdrawn. Recently, after the Karnataka elections concluded, he had used vile and derogatory language for the Karnataka governor.
Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had also taken digs at PM Modi’s humble beginnings and called him a ‘chaiwalla’. He had also referred to Modi as ‘neech insaan’ which got him suspended from Congress. Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad too has made a casteist statement on PM Modi by referring to him as ‘Gangu Teli’ (Modi belongs to the Teli caste). Congress leader Jairam Ramesh referred to PM Modi as ‘Bhasmasur’ during the run up to 2014 elections, a mythological demon.
