New Delhi: A Congress leader in Telangana stoked a controversy by comparing Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a terrorist. In the presence of party chief Rahul Gandhi, the Congress leader and former MP Vijayashanti, said “People are scared of which bomb PM Modi will drop at which minute. He looks like a terrorist.” She made the remarks while speaking at a public gathering in Shamshabad, which was also addressed by Gandhi.

The Congress leader added,”Instead of loving people, he’s scaring them. It’s not the way how a Prime Minister should be.”

Furthermore, Vijayashanti claimed that PM Modi has killed the democracy by ruling like a dictator during his tenure, while the Congress president was ‘fighting for the survival of democracy’.  “He wants to rule like that in the next five years, but people won’t give him that opportunity,” the Congress leader reportedly alleged.

She also dragged ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti and K Chandrasekhar Rao claiming,”Telangana CM is being controlled by PM Modi as the latter had helped him win Telangana Assembly elections last year.”

“KCR and his party (Telangana Rashtra Samithi) support BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in every decision in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. How many times has your CM commented on Rafale Deal? Did he ever say that PM Modi has stolen Rs 30,000 Crore of public money?” the Former MP asked.

Responding to the controversial statement, the BJP in a tweet said,”Now Congress is truly raising concerns & worries of terrorists in Pakistan. Welcome to New India.  Yeh Dar Acha Hai.”

Congress president Rahul Gandhi, at the same rally had alleged that PM Modi was creating two Indias – one in which only the rich benefited and the other in which farmers seeking loan waiver are let down. Attacking Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Gandhi said PM Modi is aware of his ‘corrupt activities’ and was ‘remote controlling’ him.
