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.
