New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kailash Vijayvargiya on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's chest will become 60-inch in the next elections and asked Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi to focus on his party.
"There is democracy in the Bharatiya Janata Party. Rahul Gandhi ji should think about his party....everybody knows that when Dr Manmohan Singh was the country's Prime Minister in the UPA regime then the government used the run on the direction of the people from Italy. This does not take place in the Bharatiya Janata Party," he told a news agency here while reacting to the Congress vice president's '56-inch' chest jibe directed at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Addressing Congress workers in Jaipur, the Congress vice-president poked fun at Prime Minister Modi's '56-inch' chest, saying his party and the people of this country will reduce it to 5.6 inches in the next six months.
He said that for the first time there is a government in the country which wants to help the opposition.
The Congress vice president said Prime Minister Modi, who made tall claims and promises before the Lok Sabha polls, is least concerned about farmers, as he has now occupied the top post.
"Now that he has become the PM, why should he be concerned about farmers? He made several promises, but empty ones," he said.
The Congress vice president also challenged Prime Minister Modi to bring back former IPL boss Lalit Modi.
He alleged that the BJP Government in Rajasthan is being run by Lalit Modi from London.
"As during the days of the British Raj, the remote control of the government here was in London. Similarly, the remote control of the Rajasthan Government is in London," he said.
