The Patidar agitation and Congress leader Hardik Patel once again stirred controversy by referring to Prime Minister Modi as ‘Yamraj’ (God of death) in his rally in Madhya Pradesh on Friday reports Republic TV.

In his attempt to provoke the crowd in Madhya Pradesh against the Prime Minister, Hardik said, “This land is the land of farmers and labourers. Why are you all sitting so quietly? Like some Yamraj has come amidst you all. There is one ‘Yamraj’ who is sitting in Delhi, I know that. But he is not here right now.”

This is not the first time a Congress leader has used the term for Modi. Earlier, Congress leader Rashid Alvin a press conference in 2013 had referred to the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as ‘Yamraj’.

Hardik Patel, who was barred from contesting the Lok Sabha elections, as the Gujarat High Court refused to stay his conviction in a case of rioting, previously too made a racist remark. In a sound byte given to the media last month, Hardik had said that if he wants to look for a ‘Chowkidaar’, he will go to Nepal and instead, he wants a Prime Minister who can strengthen the economy of the country, education and work for the youth and armed forces.

He reiterated at the end of his statement that he doesn’t want a ‘chowkidaar’ but a Prime Minister for the nation. Hardik Patel made this racist statement against Gorkhas and Nepalis after casting his vote in Viramgam in Gujarat on April 23.
