Mumbai: The Nationalist Congress Party compared Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to a leopard on Thursday who never changes its spots.

NCP leader Supriya Sule said to a TV channel, "The leopard never changes its spots. In the beginning, it appeared that their campaign will be development oriented but it's become clear what it will be now."

The comments came after the Mumbai unit of the BJP put up the posters of the party's poll panel chief declaring "I am a Hindu Nationalist" all across the western metropolis.

The ad campaign features images of Modi alongside a range of statements he made during a recent interview with a news agency.

According to reports, the campaign has been conceptualised by head of BJP's Mumbai unit, Ashish Shelar.

In an interview to Reuters, Modi had said he is a Hindu nationalist as he is born Hindu. "I am nationalist. I'm patriotic. Nothing is wrong. I am born Hindu. Nothing is wrong. So I'm a Hindu nationalist. So yes, you can say I'm a Hindu nationalist because I'm a born Hindu," he had said.
