Modi likes 'peeping in bathrooms', Google searching, says Rahul Gandhi

Jaime Mann | 12 February, 2017, 00:58

"Modi's remarks are not a personal insult rather an insult to the entire nation because it was the people of this country who elected Manmohan Singh as their Prime Minister", said Gandhi.

Polling officials check and collect electronic voting machines (EVM) at a distribution centre on the eve of the first phase of state assembly elections in Mathura, in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, India February 10, 2017.

"He [Modi] can do this [peeping into bathrooms] in his free time", Mr. Gandhi said. He said a BJP survey had shown tha the party will win majority of the seats which went to polls today and will get a "big mandate". "How can they be so irresponsible?" asked PM Modi, seeking cheers from the crowd.

Not be left behind, the incumbent Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said, "If (PM) Modi visits Agra-Lucknow Expressway even he will vote for Samajwadi Party-Congress".

He also said that if SP retains power in UP, it would work on improving law and order in the state.

Rooting for local BJP candidates in the UP assembly elections, the PM said that Badaun was among the least developed parts of the country despite being a "VIP district".

The Bharatiya Janata Party had won 71 of the 80 parliamentary seats in the general elections in May 2014, decimating all the other parties in Uttar Pradesh.

"The Prime Minister is apprehensive of the Uttar Pradesh poll result".

"(Actually) Modi's policy is that of distraction...when he can not give answers to issues like employment, security, demonetisation...he indulges in distraction and the whole country knows about it", Rahul said.

Addressing an election rally in Uttar Pradesh's Bijnor, he also ridiculed the Congress-SP alliance, terming it a case of "aa gale lag jaa". They made one caste (Yadav) as their vote bank but served only their family, he said.

There have been 1,400 incidents of criminals attacking police personnel in the last five years and 24 police personnel were killed, he said.

Both Modi and Shah slammed Congress and Samajwadi Party, saying Rahul ran a campaign against the SP Government and wondered as to what happened overnight that they were embracing each other.
