New Delhi: Congress general secretary for Uttar Pradesh (East) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday made a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi by calling him the ‘greatest actor’ in the world.
Drawing a parallel between Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan and PM Modi, Priyanka said,”Ab aap samajh lijiye ke aapne duniye ke sabse bade abhineta ko apna PM bana diya hai, is se accha toh aap Amitabh Bachchan ko hi bana dete, karna toh kisi ne kuch nahi tha aapke liye. (You have elected the world’s greatest actor as PM. It would have been better if you would’ve elected Amitabh Bachchan instead as no one would do anything for you ).”
“This election is an election in which we are fighting to save our democracy, our democratic institutions and every citizen must caste his vote responsibly,” she added.
Notably, Priyanka made the remarks while campaigning for Lalitesh Pati Tripathi, Mirzapur Congress candidate. Tripathi is up against, a BJP alliance, Apna Dal candidate Anupriya Patel, sitting MP from Mirzapur parliamentary constituency.
Patel had won the Mirzapur parliamentary constituency in 2014 by defeating Bahujan Samaj Party’s (BSP) Samudra Bind by 2.19 lakh votes.
