In yet another despicable display of brazenness, a Karnataka Congress MLA from Basavakalyan in Bidar district, B Narayan Rao, while addressing a public gathering called PM Narendra Modi “Namard”.
Displaying his real turn of mind, the MLA said in Kalaburagi in Karnataka, “Those who are namard can get married but can’t have children, PM Modi can get married but can’t have children. This is not a PM who works, but a PM who lies.”
With Lok Sabha elections just a few weeks ahead, Congress, which seems to be baffled by its recent shortcomings, such as defections, internal rifts, and the break-up with its alliances in several states, is back to resorting to its old approach of inflicting PM Narendra Modi with personal attacks.
Recently, actress and Congress leader Vijaya Shanti had equated PM Modi to a terrorist. While addressing a rally in Shamshabad, Telangana Shanti said, “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.”
Shockingly, this disgraceful statement was made in the presence of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, but knowing his disposition it is only obvious that there was no condemnation for his side.
Similarly, Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera stoked a controversy when he compared PM Modi to Islamic terrorists Maulana Masood Azhar, Osama bin Laden, Dawood Ibrahim and Pakistan’s Intelligence Agency ISI. However, Khera suffered a huge humiliation at the event as the audience immediately hooted and demanded an immediate apology from him.
In fact, Congress’ grudge against PM Modi is so strong that one of its leaders from Karnataka, TB Jayachandra, breaking all barriers of basic humanity went on to give an open call for ‘burning Modi alive’.
Somehow, these kinds of despicable political rhetorics are very common with the Congress who have become too insecure after Modi’s increasing popularity. Recently, Karnataka Congress leader Belur Gopalakrishna had shockingly called for the assassination of Prime Minister Modi.
Displaying similar rhetorics, former Uttar Pradesh MLA from the Congress party, Imran Masood, had allegedly threatened to “chop Narendra Modi into pieces” ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
In October 2018, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor had issued a controversial statement comparing Prime Minister Narendra Modi to a ‘Scorpion on a Shivling’ and claimed that PM Modi cannot be even hit with a chappal.
Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had 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. Sanjay Nirupam, another serial abuse has often used derogatory terms to abuse PM Modi by referring to him as ‘illiterate and uncouth’.
PM Modi’s humble background has always been a point of criticism for Congress leaders. After senior Congress leader, CP Joshi’s cheap casteist slur against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders of the BJP, Uttar Pradesh’s Congress Chief Raj Babbar had stooped to his lowest by pulling Modi’s mother into this muck and comparing the devaluing rate of the Indian rupee to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s aged mother.
