Swamy slams Cong for silence on SP leader`s tea-seller remark

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Friday questioned Congress` silence over a senior Samajwadi Party leader`s comment on Narendra Modi that "a tea-seller can never have a national perspective".



New Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Friday questioned Congress` silence over a senior Samajwadi Party leader`s comment on Narendra Modi that "a tea-seller can never have a national perspective".

Swamy condemned the "elitist and deplorable" remark of the UPA ally and Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agarwal that BJP`s prime ministerial nominee is unfit to be the country`s leader as he belongs to a family which managed a mere tea-stall.

He said such an arrogant attitude of the Congress party reminds the nation today of the feudal past of India and surprisingly the remark has not been condemned yet by the party, which all the time talks of "inclusive development".
Agarwal had recently said that Modi wants to become Prime Minister, but someone rising from a tea shop can never have a national perspective.
