New Delhi, February 14: Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani on Wednesday mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying he has doubt if anyone would have said “I love you” to him. In his Valentine’s Day tweet, Mevani, who has been an open critic of PM Modi and the BJP, said that he has received ‘I love you’ messages on several occasions.
“हम को बहुतों ने i love you कहा है. लेकिन मोदी जी को कभी किसी ने I love you कहा होंगा? (Many have said I love you to me. But has anyone said I love you to Modi ji). I doubt, what say ? Happy Valentine’s day” Mevani tweeted.
Jignesh Mevani, an independent MLA from Vadgam in Gujarat, had declared an open war against the BJP rule in the state during the last year’s Assembly elections. The Dalit leader had joined forces with the Congress and Patidar leader Hardik Patel against the BJP.

Mevani had recently urged the Karnataka electorate to not vote for the BJP in coming Assembly polls and said he will campaign against that party in the southern state.
“I’m ready to compromise with my ideologies to save our Constitution and to keep the BJP from winning the Karnataka elections,” Mevani had said while speaking at a commemoration event held in Bengaluru on the birth anniversary of slain journalist Gauri Lankesh.
He also said that mainstream political parties from Karnataka should form an alliance to defeat the BJP. (Also Read: There’s Threat to my Life; BJP, RSS Want to Eliminate me: Jignesh Mevani)
