With continuous taunts on Narendra Modi from the Congres president Rahul Gandhi from the past few days, Prime Minister has finally taken a jibe and reacted in the same manner as Rahul. At a rally in Uttar Pradesh, Modi spoke on former PM Rajiv Gandhi, the father of Rahul Gandhi.
Modi said that Rajiv Gandhi's life ended as "corrupt number 1". He also pointed out Rahul's earlier remarks made on him about alleged corruption in the Rafale jet deal. He said Mr.Gandhi's only aim was to tarnish his image.
While indirectly referring to the Bofors case during Rajiv Gandhi's tenure, Modi said "Your father was labelled as 'Mr Clean' by his courtiers, but his life ended as ''Bhrashtachari No 1''. He also said Congress' people's only job is to ruin his reputed image. "By spoiling my image and by making me look small, Congress wants to form an unstable and a weak government in the country," he said.
He took a dig further saying that Rahul Gandhi should remember that Modi was not born with a golden spoon, nor was he born in any royal family. On the other hand, Congress leaders lashed out at Modi saying he has crossed all limits of decency by belittling a man who died in 1991.
