He wrote, “BJP invited 36 allies and fed them. Then it made them raise their hand in (Narendra) Modi’s support. First, if the Opposition is Mahamilavat, what is this alliance of 36 parties? Second, they trust exit poll results so much that they began jubilating and third, the purpose of this dinner was Sangh?”
Earlier this month, Nirupam had stoked a controversy by calling PM Modi ‘a modern incarnation of Aurangzeb’.
“I feel that the person chosen by the people of Varanasi, Narendra Modi, is a modern avatar of Aurangzeb. This is so because, numerous temples in Varanasi have been demolished in Varanasi on the instruction of Modiji, in the name of a corridor. Here, people are asked to pay Rs 550 fee/charge to visit Baba Vishwanath temple. This proves that what Aurangzeb could not do, is being done by Modiji,” he was quoted as saying to the media in a video shared by news agency ANI.
