New Delhi: Congress leader Beni Prasad Verma on Friday hit back at BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for his comments on UPA president Sonia Gandhi while addressing a rally in Chhattisgarh recently.
While the Congress sought an immediate apology from the Gujarat Chief Minister, Verma reacted by tweeting, “When someone(Sonia) is unwell we hope for their good health and not take jibes at them.”
Modi, while addressing a rally in Chhattisgarh, had said that since Sonia is ill, she should let her son Rahul Gandhi take over the reins of the party. However, the statement didn’t go down well with the Congress leadership.
Modi had also suggested the UPA president for doing her homework before addressing any political rally.
On the other hand, Sonia Gandhi during her rally today targeted BJP leaders and said that they are day-dreaming of retaining power in the states ruled by them. She also added that BJP should realise that India is not just any other country, which can fall prey to their selfish motives.
