Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday, 16 October, mimicked Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an election rally at Morena in Madhya Pradesh.
While attacking Modi on various policies and alleged scams, he said that PM Modi calls the citizens “mitron” (friends) and addresses Anil Ambani as “bhai” (brother).
“PM says mitron, don’t make me the Prime Minister, make me the chaukidar (guard). He addresses the citizens of the nation as his friends and calls Anil Ambani “Anil bhai,”” he said.
Gandhi had made a similar statement in Datia, Madhya Pradesh, on Monday where he alleged that the prime minister addresses fugitives like Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi as “bhai”.
“He will address them as Mehul bhai, Nirav bhai, Anil bhai, Lalit bhai, but never address a farmer or a labourer as bhai,” he has said.
Gandhi, who is currently in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh for a two day rally has been attacking the Bhatratiya Janata Party government over the Rafale deal and scams involving Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya.
Gandhi visited a gurudwara in Gwalior on Tuesday on the second day of campaigning in Madhya Pradesh. He also met Congress cadres in the morning and later paid obeisance at the Data Bandi Chhor Gurudwara, located in the Gwalior Fort.
The gurudwara’s head priest presented a sword to Gandhi on the occasion. Gandhi was accompanied by state Congress president Kamal Nath and senior party leader Jyotiraditya Scindia. The three leaders tied a ‘saropa’ (head scarf) during their visit to the religious site.
Gandhi later flew to the state's Sheopur district where he will addressed a public meeting.
He is scheduled to hold a roadshow in Morena district.
The state assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh is scheduled on November 28.
