Making a no-holds-barred attack on BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said Narendra Modi needs to be "treated in a mental hospital" for talking "rubbish", while a BSP candidate termed the Gujarat Chief Minister as a "barbarian".
With election fever at its peak, the Maratha strongman made the personal attack against Modi at a rally in Ghanswangi in Maharashtra.
"Modi must have deranged as he talks rubbish things and he is needed to be treated in a mental hospital," the Union Agriculture Minister said yesterday at the rally while campaigning for party candidate Vijay Bhamble.
He said Modi does not know about the sacrifices of Congress leaders in the freedom struggle.
"Modi is talking about Congress mukt Bharat. Whether Modi knows the sacrifice and contribution of Congress in freedom struggle? Because of Congress' ideology, we got freedom," Pawar said.
Attacking Modi for the 2002 Gujarat riots, Pawar said, "Members of minority community and Congress ex-MP Ahsan Jaffari were killed in Gulbarga society, which is only 20 km from Ahmedabad where the carnage happened, but Modi neither visited the victims' family nor bothered about them."
He said Modi is "dangerous for the country."
Joining the Modi-bashing, BSP candidate from Moradabad Haji Yakub said, "The country's most cruel barbarian Narendra Modi has been announced Prime Ministerial candidate. There cannot be anything more unfortunate for the nation than this".
Addressing a campaign meet in Moradabad yesterday, Yakub alleged that, "People of BJP and RSS during the struggle for Independence by Hindus and Muslims had worked as informers of the British".
"India: Journey towards soft fascism: by Kanti Bajpa"
This is what one calls an original analysis. All this time, succus were warning us about Modi and hard fascism(or fascism proper).
It takes tremendous intellectual depth to come up with a new thesis called soft fascism and Modi.
If only the author had called Modi as Hitler, the originality would have been complete.
Nanded in Maharashtra is a Congress-NCP stronghold. The response Modi got for his rally rattled not only the Congress but greatly surprised the BJP as well.
If this support replicates across the state, NCP+Congress is toast. Understandably Pawar is having a nervous breakdown and is speaking nonsense. One just has to pity the guy for his incoherence.
feral Bhaloo should be in a cage
Jayakumar,dont get agitated,you went to town when Pawar exonerated Modi on Gulbarg carnage by Quoting the verdict of the Lower Court.
Show me my comment on OLI when Pawar said so? By the way who is Pawar to exonerate?
Today Pawar is a danger because he has asked Modi why he did nothing as CM during the riots in 2002.
What Pawar is doing is Politics to get votes,Modi is doing the same to consolidate his votes.Both are playing to there Constituencies,
Modi is the habit of making Exaggerated claims and to challenge him now is doing too little and too late.
