Congress leader who threatened to “chop Narendra Modi into pieces” accompanies Priyanka Vadra in her roadshow: Reports

As per a report in The Indian Express, Masood was in the luxury bus riding with Priyanka, Rahul, Scindia, PL Poonia and others.

Former Uttar Pradesh MLA from the Congress party, Imran Masood, who had allegedly threatened to “chop Narendra Modi into pieces” ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections was part of Priyanka Gandhi’s first roadshow in Lucknow, Indian Express has reported.

The report stated that Masood was in the luxury bus with Priyanka, Rahul, Jyotiraditya Scindia, PL Poonia and others. He was the Congress candidate from Saharanpur in 2014 when he had declared in a public rally that he will “chop Narendra Modi into pieces”.

The Congress party and its allies have a long history of making deplorable personal attacks against the Prime Minister and getting away without any punishment from the higher-ups in the party.

Only this morning, TDP workers put up posters at their chief Naidu’s protest against Modi which read  “Jiske Haath Mein Chai ka Jhoota cup Dena Tha, Uske Haath Mein Janata Ne Desh De Diya”, that translates to ‘the person who should have been given a used teacup, has been given the country by the people”.

The campaign for the Assembly Elections in 2018 saw another string of abuses from Opposition leaders. Uttar Pradesh Congress Chief Raj Babbar used the devaluing rupee to mock the PM’s mother. Babbar had 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”.

Earlier, senior Congress leader C.P. Joshi had hurled casteist slurs at Narendra Modi. In a video that went viral, Joshi could be heard saying that only Brahmins had the right and knowledge to speak about Hinduism. And since Prime Minister Modi belongs to a lower caste, he cannot talk about Hinduism.

In Rajasthan, Congress MLA Mahendra Jeet Singh Malviya had abused PM Narendra Modi in the filthiest of language. The abuses were hurled when the Congress politician was speaking at a public rally.

Prior to the Assembly elections in Gujarat, Mani Shankar Aiyer had called him ‘Neech’. Sonia Gandhi during her tenure as President of the Congress party had once called Modi ‘Maut ka Saudagar’ (the merchant of death).

Despite Congress President Rahul Gandhi spinning tales of the ‘politics of love’ that he envisions, he has shown remarkable tolerance for those who make extremely distasteful remarks against the Prime Minister of India. Imran Masood’s presence at Priyanka Gandhi’s rally only shows that the more things change with the Congress party, the more they remain the same.
