#WATCH Congress leader and former Karnataka Minister TB Jayachandra says ‘Prime Minister Modi had said (during demonetization) that give me 15 days or you can burn me alive. Now the time has come to do exactly that. If he has any self respect then he should quit and go.’ pic.twitter.com/YFFvLgrmEl

The Congress leader’s open call for ‘burning Modi alive’ is nothing less than a clear incitement to violence against the topmost leader of the country.
Former Minister TB Jayachandra while talking to media during a protest event staged against the NDA government for its decision to ban high-value currency through demonetisation on 8th November 2016, said that the day has come when we must burn Narendra Modi alive.
Former Chief Minister and BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa reacted to TB Jayachandra’s statements, said that Congress leaders have lost their mental balance and are issuing these hateful statements as they are intolerant towards PM Modi after seeing his rise. He further said that TB Jayachandra’s statement is a matter of shame and he should immediately apologise for statements, failing a defamation suit will be filed against the former Law Minister Jayachandra.
However, the Congress leader when confronted over his shameful remarks, brazened it out. “It’s his own statement, I am just reminding him. I said nothing wrong,” reportedly said the Congress leader.
This is not the first time that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been abused by the leaders of the opposition parties. Recently, Andhra Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu on Saturday referred to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as an ‘Anaconda’ and had asked if there was a “bigger anaconda” than Modi.
The opposition leaders such as Mani Shankar Aiyar have frequently abused Prime Minister Narendra Modi by referring to him ‘Chaiwala’ and ‘Neech Insan’ as an attempt to lower the dignity of Narendra Modi. Congress leaders like Manish Tiwari and Digvijaya Singh have often resorted to using derogatory words against the Prime Minister.
Another abusive Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has abused Prime Minister Modi several times and recently had used foul language to refer PM Modi as ‘illiterate and uncouth’.
