New Delhi, July 4: Controversy over Narendra Modi's action during his recent visit to flood-ravaged Uttarakhand is yet to die down. War of words between Congress and BJP leaders has taken a new turn with Shakeel Ahmed's statement calling Gujarat Chief Minister "Mogambo".
Reacting against Congress spokesperson's remark on Modi, BJP Vice-President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, "Actually, the fact is that the Congress leaders and ministers chant about Narendra Modi every morning. Their digestion is clear only after they use wicked words about Modi. I believe that in the coming days the people of the country will tell it all as to who is Rambo and Mogambo."
Without taking Modi's name, Ahmed had said, "Mogambo and Rambo look good only in movies. Some leaders of the BJP are trying to portray one of its leaders as Rambo, who can climb hills and save lives of 15,000 people... one who tries to be Rambo, ends up being Mogambo."
Mogambo is a popular villain character portrayed by late Bollywood actor Amrish Puri in Anil Kapoor, Sridevi-starrer movie "Mr India".
Modi earlier was called "Rambo" following media reports which claimed that the Gujarat CM had helped 15,000 stranded Gujaratis in the hill state. Congress minister Manish Tewari had first coined the word "Rambo" for Modi.
