LS polls 2014 special: Who said what against Narendra Modi (In Pics)

As the nine-phased Lok Sabha election 2014 reached its grand finale on May 12 after rigorous election campaigning by all political parties, a lot of 'name calling' and mud-slinging took place during the rallies.

BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was targeted by all opponent political honchos.

Let's take a look at some of the politicians who hurled jibes at Modi:

Sonia Gandhi : Zeher ki kheti

Kanataka: Sonia Gandhi accused Narendra Modi of indulging in "Zeher Ki Kheti" (Sowing seeds of poison).

"This is an area which was the 'karmabhoomi' of Sufi saints and a symbol of composite culture of the country. I firmly believe that you will not allow those - who sow the seeds of poison, who do not believe in secular credentials, and who play the politics of instigating violence - to succeed."

Himachal Pradesh: "Unka dil sirf kursi mang rahain hai (Modi's heart only seeks power)," Gandhi said at an election rally here in Himachal Pradesh. "For political gains he is using the name of martyrs."

"It seems he has started thinking himself to be the prime minister even before the results are out."


Rahul Gandhi: Adolf Hitler

Without naming Modi, Rahul compared him to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler saying, "The biggest example is Hitler. Hitler, who believed that there was no need to learn from the people and who thought whatever happened in Germany was done by Hitler and that the people had nothing to do with it."

 "I saw a poster in Delhi which had Modji's image and it was written that "Mahilaon ko main shakti doonga". Modi should change slogans on his posters where it was promised that he would give power to women, as "he was the person sending police after women and tapping their phone in Gujarat."


Priyanka Gandhi: Neech rajniti

"When you address people, tell them what you'll do for them; don't teach them English alphabet like RSVP, ABCD."

"If you want to empower women, how will you do that? You empower us by listening to phone conversations in closed rooms?"

"Modi has insulted my "martyred" father Rajiv Gandhi, and Congress booth workers in Amethi would give a befitting reply to his low-level politics."


Manmohan Singh: Disaster

"Without discussing the merits of Narendra Modi, I sincerely believe that it will be disastrous for the country to have Modi as the PM."

"If by strong prime minister you mean that you preside over the mass massacre of innocent citizens in the streets of Ahmedabad, that is the measure of strength, I do not believe that sort of strength this country needs, least of all in its prime minister."


Arvind Kejriwal: Direct fight

"Being an "agent" of industrial houses, if Modi comes to power, land will be snatched from farmers and given to Adanis and Ambanis at dirt cheap rates and farmers will have no option but to commit suicide."

Digvijay Singh: Coward & Feku

"I don't hide my relationship which Mr Modi does. I am absolutely clear in this. I am not a coward which Mr Narendra Modi unfortunately is."

"I am surprised that BJP didn't find anyone with any knowledge of history to be their PM candidate. Narendra Modi must take a few classes in history with top leaders of BJP. If he becomes prime minister and talks the same way at the UN too, what will happen to our respect?"


Mulayam Singh Yadav: Blood of innocents on his hands

"Modi is responsible for the communal riots in Gujarat. He has the blood of innocents on his hands."

"Modi is feeling uneasy with me as I am exposing his lies. He is wondering, who is telling me his truth. He should not consider me fool."


Azam Khan: Anti-Muslim

"If Narendra Modi is truly secular, then he should either declare me or BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi as prime ministerial candidate."

"How can there be riots in Gujarat? How will they (Muslims) not vote for Modi? Would they not be burnt with Tezaab (acid)? Where will they go then? If they have to live in Gujarat they will have to vote (for Modi)."

"Modi will turn the whole country into Gujarat. The Muslim man is nothing more than one vote for these parties that shout from the rooftops about secularism."


Mayawati : No Modi wave

"The country will witness communal riots if Modi comes to power. Muslims can stop Modi from coming to power by voting in favour of BSP."

"Modi is a strange man. He says something and does something else. He does not have the knowledge of history and gives wrong statistics."


Mamata Banerjee: Donkey & Danga Babu

"He will even sell the Prime Minister's chair. 'Danga babu' is jealous because people of all faiths, caste, creed live together in peace in Bengal."

"Even before the baby is born, they have have decided the baby's marriage. Someone is filling a balloon with more and more gas which will burst soon."

"His (Modi) becoming a prime minister is a fantasy."

"Bravery is good but overt bravery is not good. If he had uttered such words in any other state, he would have been slapped."


Salman Khurshid: Impotent

"Some people came, attacked and went, and you couldn't protect. Are you not a strong man? We don't accuse you (Modi) of killing people... Hamara aarop hai ki tum 'napunsak'(impotent) ho. (Our accusation is that you are impotent). You couldn't stop the killers."

Nitish Kumar: Friend turned Foes

"If Gujaratis love ice cream why aren't Modi's words sweet?"

"It's good to dream about being a PM. I have no experience of selling tea, but I too come from a modest background."


Lalu Prasad: Chela

"Varanasi is a secular place and its people will defeat the communal Modi."

"Send Narendra Modi to Pakistan, then only any question of destabilisation will arise. His people talk about sending others to Pakistan, we should send him instead,"

"Narendra Modi is a 'chela' of Advani. He has learnt everything from his 'guru' (teacher). But he has not learnt that I will stop him, just like I stopped his guru in Bihar,"




Sharad Pawar: Narrow minded

"Someone is dreaming to become Hitler in this country. We shouldn't allow such forces to succeed. We must foil his attempt in this elections."

"Those who have ambitions of running the country, don't look at all the states as their own...How can someone with such narrow mind aspire to lead a country?"

"Any political party contests a certain election on specific issues or the development issue, but, the BJP is contesting the general elections only to make Narendra Modi the prime minister and this is sign of impatience."
