Narendra Modi attacks Rahul Gandhi over ‘toffee model’, regrets targeting PM

Hazaribagh/Bhagalpur, April 15: BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Tuesday took a dig at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his “toffee model” jibe, and also regretted criticising Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the past.

“In such a big election, first they spoke of balloons and now toffees… If he gets a toffee, his day is made. But in my childhood, I never even knew what a toffee was. I sold tea to make ends meet,” Modi said at a rally in Hazaribagh, Jharkhand.

“I never had toffee in my mind when I was a child… but I had trophies in my mind. We have won over 300 trophies be it from India or the world,” the Bharatiya Janata Party leader said.

Rahul Gandhi, in repeated attacks on the Gujarat chief minister, had Monday termed the Gujarat model of development a “toffee model”.

“I call this the toffee development model. Land as huge as Mumbai was given away for Rs.30 crore in Gujarat,” Gandhi had said at a rally in Latur, Maharashtra.

“A toffee comes for Re.1… But in Gujarat, land is given away for Re.1 per square metre.”

Modi also used the opportunity to stress that the BJP had several prominent leaders, an indirect response to the Congress allegation it was becoming a one-man party.

“I thought this election will be fought on serious issues. On one side are a galaxy of leaders in the BJP like L.K. Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Murli Manmohar Joshi, and on the other side is a player who is still behaving like a child,” he said.

Modi regretted his attacks on Manmohan Singh, saying that the Gandhi family, and not the prime minister was to be blamed for the nation’s “ruin”.

“I read in the papers that the prime minister’s family is unhappy with Sanjay Baru’s book. His daughter said Baru betrayed him, which means the facts are right,” Modi said Tuesday.

“I may have said some hard-hitting things about the prime minister, but now I feel that I should not have said it as the cause of ruin is just one family,” he said.

“Sometimes the daughter and son-in-law were responsible, and everything was taking place under the leadership of the mother,” Modi said, referring to Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

In Bhagalpur, Bihar, he took a dig at Sonia Gandhi’s televised message to the voters, saying it showed COngress did not have confidence in Rahul Gandhi.

“Soniaji felt her son would manage, but since he can’t she came on TV,” he said.

    NO GOONDAS AND CRIMINALS LIKE VAJPAYEE, MODI AND SONIA-RAHUL; WORSHIP “INSANELY HANDSOME” AVATAR OF SHIVA, SATISH CHANDRA

    (April 15 ‘14) Bharatiya Janata Party is a Goonda Party which chases a Goonda (Modi) instead of worshipping this Avatar who can make India the supreme military and economic power in the world immediately (see below); it must be destroyed. Regarding the BJP president’s statement about not changing the “no first use” of nuclear weapons: what these Goondas (including Goondas like K. Subrahmanyam; see ‘Offer to Me by CIA Director and K. Subrahmanyam‘: HaydenSubrahmanyamDOTblogspotDOTcom ) working for the CIA say does not matter, only what Satish Chandra says matters. I have made abundantly clear India’s plans (see below) for the first use of nuclear weapons against the United States without itself suffering a single casualty. And see what I have said below about the Goonda M. K. Gandhi.

    (April 9 ‘14) Azam Khan says India’s Muslim soldiers won the Kargil war for India. I have said for years that the Kargil war was started by Pakistan’s army chief Musharraf on the CIA’s orders to make Vajpayee win the election that was pending after he had lost a vote of confidence as prime minister; that Hindu-Muslim conflict before 1947 was created and managed by the Intelligence Bureau leading to the partition of the country and its Indian and Pakistani successors (RAW & ISI which cooperated in the Kargil war & terror attacks such as the November 26, 2008 attack on Mumbai, etc.) continue to do so after 1947.

    (April 4-6 ‘14) The opinions and votes of India’s slave population suffering from mass-psychosis (below) do not matter; only nuclear weapons matter — to simultaneously destroy Washington, New York, RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. In a letter dated July 27, 1982 to Indira Gandhi as prime minister I referred to an act, by American Jews, that was “the equivalent of an annihilatory nuclear first strike on India”. In her reply dated July 29, 1982 she wrote “Dear Mr. Chandra, I have received your letter dated July 27, 1982 and am passing it on to my Principal Secretary to deal with it. Sincerely, Indira Gandhi”. In December, 1982 I wrote to her “There was sudden, terminal, overwhelming violence against me during a seminar at Harvard University and rather similar occurrences earlier… India can expect sudden, annihilatory violence … with nuclear weapons … against its population … unless it can mount a decisively superior force to stop it”. Following my advice, India’s strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme and the Centre for Advanced Technology, was started to give India victory in a nuclear war with the United States and because of my influence on her, Indira Gandhi as prime minister was assassinated by CIA-RAW and later when Rajiv Gandhi realized the truth of what I had written to her after the American invasion of Iraq which was the first Gulf War, he was also assassinated by CIA-RAW. In the past few years, I have had India’s nuclear forces emplace nuclear warheads in Washington, New York and other U.S. cities and India is now in a position to destroy the United States without being destroyed. In fact, India is in a position now to destroy the United States without itself suffering a single casualty by triggering its nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destroyed if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. Note that Vajpayee could not have done that because of his relationship with the CIA which brought and kept him in office. The same is the case with all other Indian politicians because of their participation in the CIA’s crimes against me which the CIA can threaten to expose.

    This is what I said when asked if India is just a pawn. “Yes, it is a pawn, a slave, a society suffering from mass-psychosis. Despite the recent revelations about M. K. Gandhi being a homosexual who reveled in his “slavery with a vengeance” to the white man, who engaged in a fake ‘freedom struggle” with the British managed by the Intelligence Bureau, the entire Indian government went to his memorial on his death anniversary this January 30, 2012 to pay tribute. India is a very sick society. (I had urged that all his portraits in government offices, etc. be burned). … By saying that India is suffering from mass-psychosis, I am being generous and kind of giving it the excuse of being ill (of the several hats I wear, I am also a mental health professional) but a country of 1.2 billion people being so terrified of much smaller numbers of people from half way around the world cannot really be excused. … ” (see RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom ).
