They have branded a whole backward community as thieves: PM Modi on Rahul Gandhi calling everyone with name ‘Modi’ as a thief

"Namdar says everyone having Modi in his name is a thief. They abuse me because I am from a backward community. This is how they view people from backward castes”, said PM Modi slamming Rahul Gandhi's remarks.

Hitting back at Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s ‘all Modis are thieves’ jibe, PM Modi said that he has been abused by the opposition many a time but this time Gandhi has branded the entire backward community as thieves.

Speaking at a rally in Maharashtra Modi said that several times Congress and its allies have targeted him for his humble background and caste and that he has endured such insults for many years but if someone tried to insult the chowkidars, the backward classes, the Dalits or Adivasis, he would not tolerate it.

Accusing Gandhi of calling the entire backward community thieves, the PM condemned the use of such language. “Should such language be used? We have to throw out such people. Abusive language has become the norm. The Sahu community here would have been called Modi in Gujarat. Are they all thieves?”, said PM at the rally.

The Congress dynast had attacked Prime Minister Modi by linking his surname with those of fugitive businessmen charged with corruption, Nirav Modi and Lalit Modi. “I have a question. Why do all the thieves have Modi in their names whether be it Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi, and Narendra Modi? We don’t know how many more such Modis will come out,” said Gandhi.

Retaliating on Gandhi’s remarks, PM Modi said, “Recently the Namdar (a reference used by the PM for Gandhi) branded an entire community as thieves. He says everyone having Modi in his name is a thief. They abuse me because I am from a backward community. This is how they view people from backward castes.”

The Gandhi scion often makes such distasteful remarks about Prime Minister Modi which are some times based on his own imagination and are nowhere close to reality. Recently he had targeted veteran BJP leader L K Advani with his imagination saying that Advani was hit with a shoe and thrown out of the Party by the PM Minister after BJP National President Amit Shah was given the Lok Sabha ticket from Advani’s seat of Gandhinagar.
