Kharge compared Modi to a deadly snake while speaking to a campaign rally in Karnataka.
In response to Mallikarjun Kharge’s comments “poisonous snake” jab against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP leader and Union minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said Friday that the elderly politician’s comments reflect the “cultural and mindset” of his party.
The Congress has never held back from attacking Modi personally, according to the railway minister, who said that the party’s former president Sonia Gandhi once referred to him as “maut ka saudagar.”
According to Vaishnaw, people have a lot of faith in Modi since he has demonstrated “moral authority” like no other leader. He claimed that people understand he is leading the nation in the right direction.
In the address he delivered to a rally in Karnataka, Kharge compared Modi to a deadly serpent. He later attempted to clarify that his comments were directed at the ruling BJP rather than the prime minister when a dispute broke out.
In the midst of a controversy over the Rs 45 crore spent on renovating his home, the Union minister also took a shot at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of “betraying” people. The BJP leader claimed that he had done the exact opposite of what he had promised. According to Vaishnaw, he can do whatever it takes to get what he wants.
