Panaji: Narendra Modi will bury the BJP "eight feet under", a Congress MP from Goa said Monday adding that the Gujarat chief minister`s elevation as BJP poll campaign chief would make life easy for the ruling party in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
"Modi`s appointment will bury the BJP not six feet under, but eight feet under," South Goa Lok Sabha MP Francisco Sardinha told reporters at a press conference at the Congress state headquarters here.

Six feet below ground level is the stipulated depth at which the Christian dead are normally buried.

Sardinha further said Modi`s appointment as chairman of the Bharatiya Janata Party`s election management committee had already triggered sharp divisions within the saffron party, which he said would take its toll during the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

"He is a divisive force not just for the country, but for the BJP itself," Sardinha said.
