Controversial Gujarat MLA from Vadgam, Jignesh Mevani, while addressing a rally organised by the Communist Party of India in Patna hurled abuses at Prime Minister Modi and called him ‘namak haram‘.

Referring to the recent violence against non-Gujaratis in Gujarat, instigated by Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor’s hate speech, Mevani said that Modi is a ‘namak haram‘ (one who betrays trust). In the nine-minute long speech, Mevani referred to Modi as ‘namak haram‘ six times.

UP-Bihar ke mazdooron ko Gujarat mein maara gaya, peeta gaya, ghaseeta gaya, unke saath badtameezi hui, lekin pradhan mantri ji ek line mein yeh appeal karne ko taiyar nahin ke hey Gujaratiyon, UP aur Bihar ke yeh bhai behno ke saath yeh badtameezi band kijiye. Ek shabd kehne ko taiyar nahin hai, isiliye namak haram ko pehchan lijiye.

(The workers of UP and Bihar were beaten up and abused, but the prime minister has not made even a single line appeal to the Gujaratis to say that the migrants from UP and Bihar are our brothers and sisters and they should stop this. Identify this ‘namak haram’.)

He added that he would apologise not just to the people of UP and Bihar but to the entire nation of 130 crores for having sent a ‘piece with manufacturing defect’ from Gujarat to Delhi. “This captain is a such a namak-haram. You see in Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, UP and Bihar, the workers whose blood and sweat has enabled construction of roads in Ahmedabad, Surat, Rajkot and Vadodara,” he said to the crowd in Patna.

Jignesh Mevani, who is an ally of Rahul Gandhi, has repeatedly misled the people since he has stepped into politics. This seems to be just another example of the same considering the violence against migrant workers in Gujarat was instigated by Alpesh Thakor and in his speech, Mevani is seen abusing the Prime Minister for it.

This is not the first time Mevani has used derogatory language for Prime Minister Modi. He had earlier posted a picture of himself with a person dressed as Prime Minister Modi, where he appeared to be apprehending the Modi-lookalike asking him to ‘end his drama’ and give answers about the promises he had made regarding job opportunities.

He has also been accused of trying to instigate caste-based violence in poll-bound Karnataka earlier this year. Not too long ago, Jignesh Mevani on Republic TV had asked the PM to “go to the Himalayas and melt his bones“. He was also caught on tape inciting people right before violence erupted in the Bhima-Koregaon incident. Not just the PM, Jignesh Mevani was also caught on tape abusing policemen after which, he had proceeded to play the victim.

Mevani has also indulged in caste-based divisive politics. He has used the Dalit card to spread misinformation about the death of a labourer in May this year. Mevani was also found maintaining silence when a Dalit family was brutally beaten up for refusing to convert to Islam.

That is not it. Mevani has been regularly called out on social media for sharing morphed images of the Prime Minister. He has also indulged in target-bullying a private individual by peddling Photoshopped images of a female columnist just because she comes from a different political ideology.
