Rahul Gandhi’s party seems to come up with new ways to abuse the Prime Minister everyday. This time, Sanjay Nirupam, who has a history of abusing PM Modi has once again created a controversy by saying in future Modi may blame Congress for his birth.
Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam while addressing a protest rally against the second anniversary of demonetisation said, “Narendra Modi, since the day he rose to power, has been blaming Congress party for every wrong thing that is happening in the country and in future PM Narendra Modi may say that Congress is the reason for his birth”.

Sanjay Nirupam went on to say that the people of the country will “politically” hang PM Modi in 2019 General Elections to take revenge against the hardships they suffered due to demonetisation. The Mumbai Congress had organised a rally in which controversial placards and banners were put up, quoting, “We are reminding the PM of his own statement when he said — Hang me if demonetisation is wrong”.
Nirupam defended the posters by saying that this is the statement made by the Prime Minister and not by the Congress party. He went on to question PM Modi on his promise to give an account of demonetisation after 50 days. He cited Modi saying that if this decision is proven to be wrong, people can hang him publicly. “More than 600 days have passed now, but the prime minister has refrained from speaking about the decision of demonetisation ever since,” said Nirupam.
This is not the first time that Sanjay Nirupam has used crass language. He had recently used foul language to refer PM Modi as ‘illiterate and uncouth’. Sanjay Nirupam’s offensive tirade is not limited to PM Modi, as earlier he had tweeted a sexist tweet on Smriti Irani after the fake news circular was withdrawn.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.
Earlier, 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.
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. Shashi Tharoor had recently called him as a ‘Scorpion sitting on a Shivling’ and they cannot him with a ‘Chappal’.
