The opposition politicians in India touch a new low in the political discourse in their hatred against Prime Minister Narendra Modi with each passing day. Opposition leaders from across political parties frequently resort to personal attacks and derogatory remarks rather than criticising him for the works done by the BJP government.
An Aam Admi Party MLA from Lakshminagar, Nitin Tyagi has referred to PM Modi as a ‘disease’. Tyagi today posted a tweet from his official Twitter handle where he seemed to suggest that PM Modi is a disease that needs to be eliminated.
मुझसे आज एक BJP समर्थक भाई ने पूछा की मोदी का कोई विकल्प हो तो बताओ। मैने भी प्यार से समझाया,”भाई बिमारी का विकल्प नहीं ढूँढते, उसे जड़ से खतम करते हैं ।”

A day ago on Saturday, Telangana Congress star campaigner Vijayashanti had compared PM Modi with a terrorist. In the presence of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, she said that people are scared of the Prime Minister that he would drop a bomb just like they are scared of terrorists. “Everyone is scared that at what moment Modi will shoot the bomb. He looks like a terrorist. Instead of loving people, he is scaring people. It’s not the way how a PM should be,” she said.
Recently, Karnataka Congress leader Belur Gopalakrishna had called for the PM’s assassination. Last year Congress leader Shashi Tharoor who is an accused in his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s murder case had compared PM Modi to a scorpion on a Shivling and regretted that he could not even be hit with a chappal. Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had called PM Modi ‘Neech’.
Hatred for PM Modi, a democratically elected leader who came to power with an overwhelming mandate has evidently made some political leaders shed the minimum levels of decency and respect expected from a politician.
