Bringing out another one from his dedicated dictionary of foul words for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mumbai Congress Chief Sanjay Nirupam on Wednesday called PM Modi Mahishasur in reaction to a statement of Maharashtra BJP spokesperson describing PM Modi as the “11th incarnation” of Lord Vishnu.

Sanjay Nirupam has a track record of using derogatory language against Prime Minister Modi. Last month, objecting to the screening of a documentary made on the early life of PM Modi for school children he had called PM Modi ‘unpadh-ganwar’ (illiterate and uncouth). Instead of apologising for such crass language he went on defending his comment by saying that PM was no ‘God’.
That’s not it. Earlier he had posted a misogynist tweet against Textile Minister Smriti Irani who was at that time heading the Information and Broadcasting Ministry regarding the withdrawing of the directives curbing the fake news by the I&B Ministry.
However, Sanjay Nirupam is not the only leader in Congress to have stooped so low by using derogatory language against PM Modi. He was given a tough competition by his colleague Mani Shankar Aiyyar who had mocked PM Modi’s humble beginnings by calling him a ‘Chaiwalla’ and a ‘Neech Insan’.
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 had also referred to PM Modi as ‘Bhasmasur’ during the run-up to 2014 elections, a mythological demon.
