Google Oneindia News

Gurugram, Nov 30: A day after Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge's controversial statement when he compared Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Ravana, erupted a war of words between the two parties, Haryana's BJP leader Anil Vij on Wednesday said that the Congress party still has a Ravana hidden inside it and its effects are seen on the party.

Taking to Twitter, the home minister of Haryana said, "Lord Shri Ram ji had killed Ravana ages ago, but with Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge's statement it seems that the Congress has 'Ravana' hidden inside it. Only because of which his (Ravana)'s effects are seen in the party from time to time," he tweeted in Hindi.

The controversy started on Tuesday after the newly appointed Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge in a poll campaign in Gujarat made the remark on PM Modi.

"Modi Ji is Prime Minister, and forgetting his work, he keeps campaigning in municipal corporation elections, MLA elections, MP elections...He (PM Modi) keeps talking about himself...You don't have to see anyone else, just look at Modi and vote. How many times do we see your face? How many forms do you have? Do you have 100 faces like Ravana?" Kharge had said.

Following Kharge's remark on PM Modi, a war of words erupted between the BJP and the Congress. BJP's national spokesperson Sambit Patra said that Kharge's remark on PM Modi is an insult to every Gujarati.

"Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ravana is a grave insult to every Gujarati and it is an insult which is rubbed into every Gujarati which only reflects the mentality of the party (Congress)," said the BJP spokesperson.

The BJP spokesperson further said, "Sonia Gandhi who was the chief of the Congress had addressed PM Modi as a merchant of death (maut ka saudagar). Congress leader Subodh Kant Sahay had told PM Modi to die Hitler's death."
