Opposition’s malediction has reached to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s doorstep as the campaigning for the elections is gathering pace. Actor turned politician Raj Babbar on Thursday waved a storm of tirade to Modi’s house calling his nonagenarian mother as to be on a par with soaring rupee.
“He (PM Modi) equated the falling currency with former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s age. But now the rupee has come down so much that it will soon stack up with your mother’s age” Congress leader Raj Babbar said in Madhya Pradesh, referring to PM Modi’s nonagenarian mother Heeraben Modi who is around 97 years of age.
The Congress leader, speaking at a rally in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, also said that his party was never opposed to the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and he now felt that even the Muslim community wanted it. The decision on the issue, however, will be taken by the Supreme Court, he said ahead of the November 28 Madhya Pradesh Assembly polls.
The Uttar Pradesh Congress chief said the BJP rakes up the temple issue during every election. “BJP has never had any great passion for Lord Ram. Whenever there is an election, the BJP starts seeking votes in Ram’s name,” Babbar said.
“People have begun to realise that BJP is deceiving voters on the issue of Ram temple. It promises to build the temple but will not tell the date,” he said.
