Priyanka Gandhi calls Modi as ‘Duryodhana’

Vastavam web: In a veiled attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Tuesday said the Mahabharata character Duryodhana too had such arrogance .Addressing a public meeting here, she also criticised Modi for calling her late father and former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi Bhrashtachari Number 1 (the most corrupt).

She dared Modi to fight the Lok Sabha elections on issues like development rather than divert the people’s attention. Duryodhana also had such arrogance. When Lord Krishna went to make him understand, he tried to take him captive, the Congress general secretary in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh said.

She read out by Hindi poet Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, saying wisdom is the first casualty before someone’s downfall: Jab naash manush par chhata hai, pehle vivek mar jata hai…

She said if the prime minister has courage he should fight the Lok Sabha elections on issues related to development, employment, farmers and women. He should face the people and tell them what he has done for them over the past five years and what he plans to do in the future, she said.

Priyanka Gandhi said the people of the country are wise. “You cannot mislead the people. The people of this country make every leader answerable and they will make you answerable as well, she said.
