In an unsurprising turn of events, a Congress minister from Karnataka hurled expletives at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. R Roshan Baig made the remark in a public rally to Congress workers of Pulikeshinagar assembly constituency in the city. The comment has to lead to huge outrage all over the country with the BJP strongly condemning the use of such pathetic language and demanding Baig’s resignation.
“When Modi was voted to power as Prime Minister, his supporters said he is our son. But, now what has happened? He banned Rs. 1000 note. Banned Rs. 500 note. Now, these very same people are chiding him,” he said before using derogatory language against Modi. He went on to add, “…it is not the Congressmen, but Gujaratis and Marwaris, who had supported BJP, who are saying this.”
The move has become a common trick of the Congress whose ministers are just taking a leaf out of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi’s book. Be it Sonia Gandhi’s “maut ka saudagar” or Rahul Gandhi’s “khoon ki dalali” comment or Manish Tewari and Digvijay Singh’s constant abuses against Modi , it is clear that the Congress who have seen a tremendous downfall have been left stumped by Modi and the BJP and have no arsenal to fight his progressive policies and work except using filthy language.
The BJP party command came out in full force to blast the comment. Lok Sabha member Shobha Karandlaje went on to say, “Baig should mind his language. Otherwise, we will be compelled to hit back in the language he understands. She also went on to demand his resignation and labeled the comment as just another desperate trick by the Congress party. The BP was supported by other parties too with JDS supremo HD Deve Gowda saying he disapproved of the expletive used by Mr. Baig.”Whatever may be one’s emotions….one should not cross limits…one should speak about issues and mind the language used,” he said.
