New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hit out at Congress party and said that with each passing day the grand old party is proving to stoop lower than ever. Referring to Raj Babbar and CP Joshi’s recent derogatory remarks against him, PM Modi said that he is not surprised that the Congress leaders are in a constant bid to make personal attacks at me as they have no vision for the development.

He also targeted Congress president Rahul Gandhi and claimed that the latter is the one behind all the casteist slur at him. “They are questioning my caste, dragging my mother to the muck because they lack vision for the development. Voters don’t care about my caste, but the Congress party does,” the Prime Minister stated, while addressing a rally in Alwar district of poll bound Rajasthan.

Furthermore he added,”Nobody is concerned about my caste, nobody sees or inquires about my caste across the globe. All they see is the 125 crore Indian population which I represent. Congress seems to have forgotten that all castes are equal, and the sole aim of the BJP is the complete, holistic development of every segment of the society.”
Modi’s remarks comes days after Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar compared the devalued rate of the Indian rupee to the age of his Nonagenarian Mother. Babbar had also called the Prime Minister ‘manhoos’ over the surging fuel prices.
Besides Babbar, Congress leader CP Joshi had also launched a personal attack on the Prime Minister by claiming that Narendra Modi and Union Minister Uma Bharti are not qualified to speak on Hinduism.
“Uma Bharti, who belongs to the Lodi samaj, is talking about Hindu religion. Narendra Modi too belongs to some other religion and talks about Hinduism,” Joshi had said, while addressing a gathering at Sema village in Rajsamand district of poll-bound Rajasthan.
