They talk about beating me...': PM Modi rakes up Rahul Gandhi's 'danda' remark at Assam rally


Guwahati, Feb 07: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday fired a fresh salvo at former Congress president Rahul Gandhi over the latter's 'Danda' remark, in a rally at Assam's Kokrajhar, saying one with a protective shield of mothers and sisters of the country cannot be harmed.

"Some leaders talk about beating me with sticks, but I'm saved by the blessings of all mothers of India. I pay my respects and thank all of you. I am here to instil a new belief in all Assamese people," he said while addressing a public meeting in Kokrajhar.
