Congress leader Raj Babbar mocks PM Modi’s 97-year-old mother, claiming Rupee inching towards her age

Raj Babbar also referred Prime Minister Modi as manhoos (ominous) over the rising fuel prices. 

After senior Congress leader CP Joshi’s cheap casteist slur against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders of the BJP, it is now Uttar Pradesh Congress Chief Raj Babbar’s turn to stoop into yet another low in politics.  Yesterday he compared the devaluing rate of the Indian rupee to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s aged mother.

Senior Congress leader Raj Babbar speaking at a rally in Madhya Pradesh referred to PM Modi’s 97-year old mother Heeraben Modi and said, “He (Modi) used to say that the Indian rupee has fallen so much against the Dollar that it was nearing the age of the then prime minister (Manmohan Singh). Today, the rupee’s valuation has dropped so low, that it is inching closer to your beloved mother’s age”.

The Congress leader Babbar while campaigning in the Madhya Pradesh ahead of the state elections also referred Prime Minister Modi as manhoos (ominous) over the rising fuel prices.

Raj Babbar went on to claim that Congress party has never opposed to the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and further added that he has now felt that even the Muslim community want to build a temple at Ayodhya. He said the BJP rakes up the temple issue during every election but never had any great passion for Lord Ram. He said whenever there is an election, the BJP starts seeking votes in Ram’s name.

Earlier, Congress leader CP Joshi had targetted the caste and humble background of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In a video which has gone viral now, former minister CP Joshi is seen claiming people belonging to the lower castes, including Narendra Modi, who is from other ‘dharam‘ (meaning lower caste in this context) should not talk about Hindu religion.

Raj Babbar had caused a severe controversy recently, after the actor-turned-politician during a poll campaign in Chattisgarh had compared Naxals to revolutionaries saying that “revolution” undertaken by them should be resolved through talks.

Congress leaders have often targetted the humble origins of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar has time and again refers PM Modi as a ‘Chaiwala’ and had once called him as  ‘neech insaan’. Shashi Tharoor had recently called him a ‘Scorpion sitting on a Shivling’ and that’s why they cannot hit him with a ‘Chappal’.

Another Senior Congress leader from Karnataka, TB Jayachandra had also made derogatory statements against the Prime Minister saying that time has come to burn down PM Modi.
