During the 2014 Lok Sabha poll campaign, Narendra Modi condemned the ‘dehati aurat’ insult made by Nawaz Sharif in his interaction with Indian journalists. If Gujarat CM and BJP’s PM candidate wanted to use this in his campaign and mock Manmohan Singh, he could have garnered more claps and votes. But he did not. He displayed bi-partisan statesmanship by telling the world that India will not accept this kind of language. He said :
“How dare you (Sharif) address my nation’s Prime Minister as a village woman? There cannot be a bigger insult of the Indian Prime Minister. We can fight with him on policies but this we will not tolerate. This nation of 120 crore will not tolerate its Prime Minister’s insult,”
He went on to condemn the journalists who did not object to Nawaz Sharif’s comment during the interaction.
“The journalists who were sitting in front of Nawaz Sharif when he was insulting our Prime Minister should also answer to the people of my country.” “I want to ask those journalists, I don’t know who were they but journalists of my country who were having sweets sitting with Nawaz Sharif when he was abusing our Prime Minister calling him village woman, I expected those Indian journalists, the country expected them, to refuse the sweets and walk out,”
However, today the Indian National Congress, a 132 year old party which was once led by the likes of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel has reached a low point which is unprecedented. It made a shameless collection of PM Modi’s hugs with world leaders and posted it on their official handle during an important bilateral visit. This shows that they are jealous, malicious and full of hatred for the current PM.

Rahul Gandhi claimed that his party respected the post of PM during his campaign speech in Gujarat. He said:
“The Congress Party respects the chair of Prime Minister. No one in the Congress is allowed to insult the Prime Minister. Modiji can say anything about us. That is why we took strict action against Mani Shankar Aiyar,”
But from this Tweet it appears that the Congress party does not respect the post of the Prime Minister at all. Their hunger for power and jealousy has clearly frustrated them deeply. The people of India and Modi’s supporters will teach a lesson that Rahul Gandhi and his party will never forget in their life in 2019. This shameless tweet of the Congress party will not be forgiven by the people of India.
