Congress leaders suffering from "Modi-phobia": BJP
New Delhi: In a sharp reaction to Finance Minister P Chidambaram`s statement that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is a divisive figure, BJP on Monday said such leaders are suffering from "Modi-phobia" and a psycho-analysis test should be performed on them.
"Chidambaram and several other Congress leaders suffer from Modi-phobia. There is a need for a psycho-analysis test of such leaders," BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi told reporters when asked about her reaction to the Finance Minister`s remarks.
Lekhi said the Congress leaders are using such language due to "failures" of UPA government as seen in "lack of governance" which the people are now well aware of.
She expressed her ire over the frequent targeting of Modi by Congress leaders.
"The UPA government is responsible for malgovernance and corruption", the BJP leader charged.
"Those using such language about Modi have scored century after century in corruption and their innings is still not over," Lekhi said.
Earlier, Chidambaram had told PTI that Modi is a divisive figure and there is a "lot of rebellion" within his party, starting from the top. He was apparently referring to the resignation by LK Advani over the elevation of Modi as BJP`s Election Campaign Committee Chief.
