Gandhinagar: Gujarat’s hardline Chief Minister Narendra Modi has slammed Congress for comparing him to ‘monkey’ and ‘rats’, saying both these creatures were "messengers of God" so he takes pride in being called so.
Modi made this remark while addressing his supporters in four cities simultaneously through specially erected screens in Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Rajkot and Surat with the help of 3D holographic technology and satellite link-ups on Sunday.
"Had Congress leaders studied Ramayana, they would have got a fair idea of 'vanar shakti'. I accept the title given by them to me," Modi said, while lashing out at Congress for using "foul language".
