New Delhi: The Congress Friday accused BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi of distorting Priyanka Gandhi Vadra`s "low-level politics" remark, calling him "desperate" for power.

"BJP`s prime ministerial candidate is desperate because he has understood that the election results will not be according to his expectations, which is why he has distorted Priyanka`s remark for electoral benefits," Congress spokesperson Ajay Maken said in a press conference here.
"When Modi was asked in a TV interview about why he has given a caste spin to Priyanka`s remark, he explained that her remarks would mean the same if spoken in Gujarati language," Maken told reporters.
"What is most surprising here is that Priyanka made a statement in Hindi and Modi made a counter-statement in Hindi. So where does the Gujarati language spring in here?" he said.
