Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge’s crass statement: ‘Will Modi will hang himself if Congress gets more than 40 seats’

Another platitude that was thrown around by Kharge was that Modi claims himself to be from the backward community, but he is helping only the super-rich.

The political discourse through the 2019 general elections has been finding a new abyss every day. From Congress coining the ‘chowkidar chor hai’ campaign without any proof to filthy abuses being hurled at the Prime Minister. Now, senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge has made another crass statement. He has asked whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi hang himself at Vijay Chowk if Congress manages to get more than 40 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The bizarre statement was made by Kharge while he was speaking at a public rally in support of Congress candidate Subhash Rathod for the bypoll election in Chincholi seat of Karnataka. Kharge said, “Wherever (Modi) goes, (he) says Congress will not get 40 seats (in Lok Sabha polls). Does any of you agree with this? If we get 40 seats, will Modi hang himself at Vijay Chowk in Delhi?”

The statements did not just stop there. Mallikarjun Kharge reportedly said that while PM Modi keeps saying that Congress did not do anything in all these years, he was not even born when India got independence.

Another platitude that was thrown around by Kharge was that Modi claims himself to be from the backward community, but he is helping only the super-rich.

The by-poll to Chincholi has been necessitated by the resignation of sitting member Umesh Jadhav, who quit Congress and joined the BJP to contest the recent Lok Sabha polls from Gulbarga, while the Kundgol seat fell vacant following the death of Minister C S Shivalli.

This is not the first time that a senior Congress leader had made derogatory remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Recently, Prime Minister Modi had recounted all the abuses that have been hurled at him over the years, from ‘mad dog’ to ‘rabies stricken monkey’.

Just as Mallikarjun Kharge has questioned the Prime Minister’s backward caste, Mayawati had recently lied that PM Modi had added his caste in the backward category after becoming the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

Narendra Modi belongs to the Modh Ghanchi caste, which is listed as an OBC by the Gujarat government. And a perusal of the records shows that Mayawati clearly lying by saying that his caste was included in the list during the term of Modi as CM of the state. Records show that the Modh Ghanchi caste was classified as OBC in July 1994, much before Modi became chief minister.
