Congress President Mallikarjuna Kharge, While addressing election rally in Kalaburagi, Karnataka, said that Prime Minister Modi is like a ‘poisonous snake’, you will think is it poison or not. If you taste it, you will die. Political rhetoric has intensified about his statement. BJP leaders gave a sharp reaction to the statement.
According to Union Minister Anurag Thakur, repeated defeats in the elections and the anger of the Congress have become the compulsion of the Congress to humiliate Modi ji, to insult Modi ji, from Sonia Gandhi to its president till now, says Modi ji a merchant of death, sometimes they call him a scorpion, some says a snake….Congress will have to apologize to the nation else the people of Karnataka will respond by confiscating their deposit.
About the statement, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that Kharge ji has poison in his mind. They are prejudiced towards PM Modi and BJP. Such thinking comes out of frustration because they are unable to fight them politically and they see their ship sinking.
In a sharp reaction to his statement, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that an experienced person like Kharge ji said the word today and the leader of the party from which he comes (Sonia Gandhi) used to call the prime minister a merchant of death. Such words are not acceptable in democracy. We think that Kharge ji must have had some compulsion, he has used such words to satisfy his bosses.
Reacting to Kharge’s statement, Union Minister Prahlad Joshi said that he feels that the post of Prime Minister is the right of the Gandhi family, he (Mallikarjun Kharge) speaks such things to show his loyalty to Gandhi family. But whenever he has said such a thing, people have responded to it… Kharge ji should apologize.
