Punia makes controversial remarks against PM Modi

Friday, 14 February 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Senior Congress leader and party in-charge for Chhattisgarh PL Punia on Thursday set off a controversy with his remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Rajya Sabha parliamentarian Punia sought to draw a parallel between PM Modi and Nathuram Godse, the man who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi. He drew an analogy between the two by saying that it is their habit to first bow down and then attack.

Rs Rs When he (Modi) came to the Parliament for the first time, he bowed down. In 2014, he entered Parliament after bowing down at stairs, in 2019, he bowed down before Constitution but look how Parliament is being treated, processes being exploited. Such thing has never happened before. Even, Nathuram Godse first touched the feet of Mahatma Gandhi and then shot him. This is their tradition,” Punia remarked at a press conference held at Congress state headquarters in Raipur.

The Congress spokesperson Punia’s remark against PM Modi drew sharp reactions from the BJP.
