SP leader Azam Khan called BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi a dog's relative. "Modi is the brother of a dog's son (kutte ke bachche ka bada bhai). We don't want his or Rajnath Singh's regrets," Azam Khan said.
This remark comes a day after Beni Prasad Verma targeted Modi and had called him a gunda (goon) of the RSS. "Mahatma Gandhi was killed because of the RSS and the BJP. Modi is a goon of the RSS and Rajnath is his slave," Beni Prasad said.
On the same day, there was another war of words between Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Modi. It had started when Modi took a dig at Akhilesh during his rally in Bareilly, saying that his government was unable to handle lions from Gujarat. "When the Gujarat government had given lions from the Gir National Park to Uttar Pradesh, we had hoped that it would give Akhilesh some strength, but that wasn't the case. The lions had to be caged. I invite Netaji and his family to visit Gir. Our lions are not caged. They roam around freely," Modi said.
Akhilesh, however, hit back, saying that he had the lions and didn't need any from Gujarat. "So far, we have just requested for a hyena," Akhilesh said in response to Modi's attack of words.
