Modi is using cheap gimmicks to draw people’s attention with the help of dishonest media outlets that work as Modi’s personal properties.

Most people know that the Prime Minister (PM) of India Narendra Modi is an illiterate man who always behaves like a boor. As he wants to win election by hook or by crook, today he spewed venom against a former PM of India – late Rajiv Gandhi – who is the father of Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
At an election rally in Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Modi called Rajiv Gandhi Bhrashtachari No:1 (Corrupt No:1) because the Bofors scandal took place during Rajiv Gandhi’s tenure.
Congress president responded to Modi’s distasteful remarks by saying, “Modi Ji, the battle is over. Your Karma awaits you. Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father won’t protect you. All my love and a huge hug.”
The battle is over. Your Karma awaits you. Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father won’t protect you.
All my love and a huge hug.

Although Rajiv Gandhi was called ‘Mr. Clean’ (an honest man), there were allegations that Swedish defence equipment manufacturer Bofors had paid kickbacks to Rajiv Gandhi and others for the sale of its artillery gun to India.
Modi’s attack on the deceased PM was an act of revenge on his son Rahul Gandhi who has been calling Modi a thief because of his alleged involvement in the Rs. 30,000-crore (~ $4 billion) Rafale corruption case. The Supreme Court of India is in the process of hearing the Rafale case.
“Your father was termed ‘Mr. Clean’ by his courtiers, but his life ended as ‘Bhrashtachari No:1’,” Modi said. Rajiv Gandhi had died in 1991.
From his repeated disgraceful remarks, it appears that Modi has gone completely berserk. He wants to draw voters’ attention toward him with his vulgarity because he has failed as the PM of India.
During his tenure of 5 years as the PM, Modi has brought India to a brink of disaster. Rampant corruption, deteriorating foreign relations, increasing terrorism, and joblessness have been the hallmarks of his government.
As Modi and his party BJP have failed on all fronts, they have nothing to boast in order to woo the voters. Now they are using cheap gimmicks to draw people’s attention with the help of dishonest media outlets that work as Modi’s personal properties.
Earlier, Modi blamed the first PM of India Jawaharlal Nehru (great-grandfather of Rahul Gandhi) who had died more than 50 years ago. Then Modi targeted another Congress leader and former PM Indira Gandhi – daughter of Nehru and grandmother of Rahul Gandhi – who had died in 1984.
