The Congress president's comments were in reply to Modi's "Bachao, Bachao" remark on the anti-BJP rally held in Kolkata.

Taking to his Twitter handle, Rahul said, "Your Highness, The cries for help are the cries of millions of unemployed youth; of farmers in distress; of oppressed Dalits and Adivasis; of persecuted minorities; of small businessmen in ruin; begging to be freed from your tyranny and incompetence. In 100 days, they will be free."

On Saturday, Modi criticised the Trinamool Congress (TMC)-organised rally in Kolkata. While questioning the basis of their unity, the prime minister said that participants of the rally just wanted to save themselves.

"They have all gathered there and are shouting 'Bachao, Bachao, Bachao'," Modi said.

It is noteworthy that Rahul along with UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi skipped the mega rally, which was attended by Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu, DMK president MK Stalin, National Conference supremo Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, BSP leader Satish Mishra and Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) chief Ajit Singh among others.
