PM Modi Mocked Rahul Gandhi Like A Stuck Gramophon

By Preeti Sigh On 01 Nov, 2018

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday mocked Rahul Gandhi, saying he keeps repeating things like a stuck gramophone but people would not accept his "childish" claims and "lies" against the government as they make "fun" of such remarks. With campaign for assembly elections in five states under way and the Lok Sabha polls less than six months away, he stressed on his development plank during a video interaction with BJP workers, asking them to go to people with a three-point agenda -- development, fast development and development for all. To a question from a worker as to how they should respond to opposition leaders' "abuses" like calling him a scorpion -- an apparent reference to Congress leader Shashi Tharoor's recent remarks, PM Modi said they (Congress) were only doing what they are capable of. The prime minister said, he was glad that he was of use to them (Congress leaders) as it allows them to vent their anger and spend their time "happily" with their family members in the evening. Citing an anonymous RSS functionary's comments to a journalist, Mr Tharoor had said that PM Modi was "Like a scorpion sitting on a Shivlinga, which can neither be removed with hand, nor be hit with a chappal (Slipper)." PM Modi, however, took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi when a party worker asked him as to how they should respond to the Congress president's comments in his rallies that there should be mobile manufacturing factories in the areas he visits. "There used to be gramophone records earlier. At times, it would get stuck and play the same words again and again. There are some people like it. One thing occupies their mind and they keep repeating it. You should enjoy it. Don't think much of it," he told BJP workers. These people don't know that time has changed and they should not treat people as fools, PM Modi said, adding that nobody accepts such childish remarks. People make fun of it, he said.
