Embarrassed by hate speeches from the saffron camp, Narendra Modi today disapproved of "petty" statements by those claiming to be BJP's well-wishers saying they are deviating the campaign.

"Petty statements by those claiming to be BJP's well- wishers are deviating the campaign from the issues of development and good governance.

"I disapprove (of) any such irresponsible statements and appeal to those making them to kindly refrain from doing so," Modi said in a series of tweets as controversial statements by VHP leader Pravin Togadia and Bihar BJP leader Giriraj Singh were denounced by rivals and allies of BJP.

"With great happiness, the entire nation is looking toward BJP for going to people solely on the issue of good governance and development," Modi said in one of his tweets.

Modi, however, did not take any name but it was clear he was obviously referring to Togadia and Giriraj Singh, who had made hate speeches in the last three days.

Togadia, who is not on best of relations with Modi, created a storm when he had asked his supporters to forcibly vacate a house purchased by a Muslim in a Hindu-majority area of Bhavnagar.

Giriraj Singh, a former minister and a candidate in the Lok Sabha elections in Bihar, had said that those opposing Modi had no place in India but should go to Pakistan.

Following a storm over his remarks, Togadia has denied giving any advise which was "socially or legally wrong" and threatened to take legal action against media houses.

Despite, the party president Rajnath Singh pulling him up, Giriraj Singh has said he stood by his comments.

In Modi regime, if a Muslim makes provocative statement, he'll be jailed. If an Upper Caste makes provocative statement, he'll be asked to refrain.

People who believe Modi will come to power by "Hooks or Crooks" must have believed that the Congress party came to power so many times after the independence by the same method.  I am always facinated by Kishoredas's ability to predict future.  Mr. Daruwala eat your heart out.

yes. The country is waiting for NDA to come to power with the help of everybody or anybody (be it Paswan or Yeddurappa or Sri Ramulu or Shiv Sena). The whole aim is to come to power by hook or crook. Yes.... all this so that BJP can 'serve' the country and its poor.
