Rahul Gandhi mocks dip in ‘dignity of speeches’ | India News – Times of India


GORAKHPUR: Congress star campaigner Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, criticising PM Narendra Modi‘s “mujra” remark targeting the INDIA bloc, said on Saturday the PM should “maintain decorum”, while her brother, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, posted on X saying, “Pradhan Mantri ki bhasha ki garima aur Bhajpa ki seatein – dono hi lagatar girti chali ja rahi hai (The dignity of the PM’s speeches and BJP’s seats continue to fall).”
“Did you listen to Modiji’s speech in Bihar? He used words for opposition leaders, which have not been used by any PM in the history of this country,” Priyanka said at a public meeting to garner votes for INDIA bloc candidates in Gorakhpur and Bansgaon seats.
She added: “People of the country had imposed their faith in him and trusted him with their future. Even the opposition holds respect for the post of PM. Isn’t it Modiji’s responsibility to treat his position with dignity?”Priyanka said the PM’s way of speaking had exposed him. “Modi-ji, aap desh ke pradhan mantri hain. Apne desh ko apne parivar saman kaha hai. Parivar ka jo mukhiya (ko) parivar ke sadayason ke prati ankhon ki sharam rakhni chahiye. Afsos ki bat ye hai ki jis tarike se aap bol rahe hain uss se aapki asliyat dikahai dene lagi hai (Modi ji, you are PM of this country and you have called the people of this nation your family members. As head of this family, you should maintain decorum. But the way you have started talking has exposed your true face).”
Priyanka shared the stage with alliance partner and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav. Greeting the audience with the local Bhojpuri salutation “Raua sabhe ke Ram-Ram (Ram-Ram to you all)”, Priyanka said she was proud to be present in the sacred land of Gorakhpur. She also invoked Guru Gorakhshanath to lament the “prevalent culture in politics”. Akhilesh Yadav urged people to vote for the interests of their future generations. “A wind of change is blowing in Uttar Pradesh,” Akhilesh said, adding, “BJP will be wiped out from the nation on June 4.”
In Bihar, leader of opposition Tejashwi Prasad Yadav said even the PM’s supporters did not like the kind of language Modi was using. RJD Rajya Sabha member Manoj Jha also criticised the PM, saying, “After machhli (fish), mutton and mangalsutra, it is now the turn of mujra. Does it behoove the PM of the country to speak such language?” Senior Congress functionary Pawan Khera also criticised the PM. “Is this the type of language a Prime Minister is supposed to use? His mujra remark is making the nation the butt of ridicule. He has also started saying that he is not a biological human being but some divine messenger. The PM seems unaware that the world takes note of all his utterances,” said Khera.
