New Delhi: Reacting to Naresh Agarwal`s dig at BJP`s prime ministerial candidate for 2014 General Elections Narendra Modi, party leader Kirti Azad said on Thursday that even mental hospitals could not treat the Samajwadi Party leader as he was beyond their diagnosis.
On the micro-blogging site Twitter, Azad posted – "Mental hospitals refuse to admit Naresh Aggarwal, as they feel he is beyond their diagnosis, after his comments on chaiwallah.
He also tweeted – "Naresh Aggarwal meant only those charged for illegal assets, example, his leader Mulayam Singh Yadav, exonerated by `caged parrot` under pressure, can become PM."
In a personalised attack on the Gujarat CM in Hardoi yesterday, Naresh Agarwal had said that a person who used to sell tea can never be nationalist in his views and can never become India`s PM.
"Narendra Modi says he used to sell tea. He wants to be PM now. A tea vendor can never have a national outlook," Agarwal had said, adding, "If a constable is given an SP`s job, his perspective will not change."
On the fact that Modi`s rallies across the country was attracting huge crowds, he had said that even street performers are able to draw large crowds.
However, the SP leader today regretted making such a remark as it had hurt the poor.
