On Tuesday, Congress President Rahul Gandhi had said that he is ready to become the Prime Minister of India if the Congress emerges as the biggest party in 2019.
Taking a jibe at him, Narendra Modi during an election rally in Karnataka has said that ‘he (Rahul) is dreaming all the time.
“He is not concerned about the Congress, its traditions or the leaders. He is dreaming all the time to become Prime Minister in 2019,” Modi told a gathering at an election rally.
Without mentioning the name of Gandhi, Modi said he was promoted by the party despite doing nothing.
“He is promoted in Congress irrespective of work he does, because he is a ‘naamdar’. That is why he was made General Secretary in 2007. Then it was said that he would bring new leadership in Congress, change youth policy. But nothing has happened over the last 11 years,” he said.
Modi said Gandhi had an inflated ego despite losing 25-30 elections in the last four years.
“Congress could win just 40 seats in Parliament. It has lost in almost all states in the last four years. But the ego of ‘naamdar’ is still bloated. He says that he will become PM in 2019. Isn’t this his ego?” he said.
Modi said the Gandhi family had a feeling that the post of Prime Minister was reserved for them. “No one can sit on that position. It is their right (they think).”
“This family has nothing to do with democracy. So, they find ways to undermine it.”
