Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh labour minister Swamy Prasad Maurya on Friday lashed out at Congress president Rahul Gandhi for attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and called him a "mad man who doesn't deserve to lead India's oldest political party".
"Rahul Gandhi has been continuously calling the prime minister a thief. Look at the decency of Modi that he is not (even) responding," said Maurya, who switched sides from the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) before the 2017 Assembly elections.
"It is a matter of great shame that the Congress leader is mouthing such (abusive) language for the country's prime minister," the minister told reporters on the sidelines of an event in Mainpuri.
He said that "this childish behaviour did not behoove of the Congress chief", adding that the Opposition party should be worried since this will invite public ire.
Maurya said that the "immature behaviour" of Rahul was for all to see as he had embraced Modi in the Lok Sabha and also gave statements that even a child would not.
The minister also said that the vicious Congress campaign on the Rafale deal will not cut into BJP victory prospects in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off the MV Ganga Vilas. The luxury liner will embark on a journey from Varanasi in UP and reach Dibrugarh in Assam via Bangladesh in 51 days. The voyage will cover a distance of 3,200 km and passengers will be able to visit over 50 tourist sites
In response to a Twitter user's appreciation post for Gandhi, Agnihotri wrote, "I like the ease with which he wears warm jackets indoors and goes without jacket outdoors. Also, ease with which he drinks chai outdoors and 5 course meal indoors. Easy drama. Easy followers. Good one."
