After Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared his opinion over Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s decision to fight from Waynad in Kerala as his second seat, the Congress party became angry with his comment and has demanded an apology from the PM. Modi claimed that Rahul Gandhi has taken the decision because the Congress is “scared” that Hindus will punish them for “Hindu terror” remarks and therefore running away to the minority-dominated seat.
On Monday, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala told the reporters that the Election Commission (EC) must take action against PM.
“He must apologize to the nation. He has insulted the freedom movement, he has insulted entire southern India, he has insulted the composite culture of India, he has insulted the India that is unified by its multiple cultures as well as languages, religions, castes, and creeds. The Election Commission must take note of this and take action against Narendra Modi,” Mr. Surjewala claimed.
Party general secretary KC Venugopal considered the remark of the PM as “most condemnable and divisive”. Mr. Venugopal said in a statement, “By alleging that Rahul Gandhi is contesting form Wayanad on account of residents of a particular religion living there is a disgrace to the high office PM is holding.”
“Looking at the imminent defeat, a frustrated and flustered Prime Minister has shed all sense of responsibility of the high office he holds, and broken every constitutional norm and every norm of the public life that a person holding such a high office should uphold by alleging that Rahul Gandhi is contesting Wayanad seat as people of a particular religion live there,” the Congress leader added.
