Congress writer Salman Nizami raises question on Modi's family background, PM hits back

Gandhinagar, Dec 9 (IBNS): Taking the Gujarat poll campaign to a new low, Congress politician and writer Salman Nizami raised question on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's family background only to be countered by PM himself on Saturday.

Seeking to redeem another political point after the windfall score he gained following Manishankar Aiyer's 'Neech' comment,  Modi shared a screenshot of Nizami's tweet on the micro-blogging site where the latter compared Gandhi's family legacy with Modi's background.

Hitting out at Nizami, the Prime Minister tweeted: "I want to tell all Congress leaders who are abusing me, mocking my poor family, asking who my parents are- this nation is my everything. Every moment of my time is devoted to India and 125 crore Indians."

Shirking of responsibility, Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi, with whom Nizami was seen in several pictures, told India Today that she cannot be held responsible for anyone's activity who clicks picture with her.

Priyanka even said Modi's reply to every individual further shows the Bharatiya Janata Party's desperation to win the Gujarat election.

This is the second time in the same week when the BJP has accused the Congress of using "derogatory" remarks against the Prime Minister.

Two days ago, Congress' senior leader Mani Shankar Aiyar called the PM a "neech aadmi" or "low aadmi" that had not gone down well with the saffron party.

Though the Congress had suspended Aiyar from the party's primary membership, Union minister and BJP leader, Ravi Shankar Prasad, said: "Humour is a part of politics but not abuses."

"It is the feudal, arrogant thinking that only they (Congress) can rule India and no one else," Prasad said immediately after Aiyar's comment on Thursday.
