The chief of Uttar Pradesh, Raj Babbar sparked a controversy on Friday by making some personal comments on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a public rally in Indore, ahead of state elections in Madhya Pradesh on 28th November.
Getting personal, the Congress leader said: "In the past, he (Narendra Modi) attacked ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying Indian rupee has fallen so much against the dollar that it was close to Singh's age. Now, the value of rupee has dropped to new low and getting closer to your mother's age."
Raj, the actor-cum-politician, went on to say that Modi is 'manhoos' (ominous) while targeting him for the unreasonable fuel rise in the country. Raj also made an attempt to clarify that Congress has never opposed Ram Temple and said: 'BJP never showed any passion for Lord Ram and they seek votes in the name of god and deceive us.'
Infuriated with the remarks, BJP leaders and the fans of PM Modi took to Twitter to condemn Raj Babbar. The spokesperson of BJP responded as: "Congress MP Raj Babbar has crossed his limits by mocking PM's mother. The country will not tolerate such attacks on any mother."
