Bangarpet (K’taka): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today took a jibe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi after the latter publicly declared his prime ministerial ambition, and wondered whether the country would ever accept such an “immature and naamdar (famous)” leader for the post.

“Yesterday someone made an important declaration—he said, “I am going to be PM!” He came like those bullies, barging his way ahead when there are others who have many years of experience. How can someone just declare himself as the PM? This is simply nothing but arrogance,” Prime Minister Modi said addressing an election rally at Bangarapet in Karnataka.

“The naamdar who does not have confidence in his alliance partners… who doesn’t care for Congress’ internal democracy, whose arrogance has reached cloud seven, and is declaring himself that he would be the prime minister in 2019… Will the country ever accept such an immature naamdar leader?” Modi said.

Modi’s attack came a day after Gandhi said he was ready to occupy the prime minister’s post if his party emerged as the biggest party in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, making known his ambition for the topmost executive post.

“There are leaders waiting for 40 years, He came all of a sudden and placed his bucket, and said I will become the prime minister,” Modi said during the final lap of his campaign blitz in the election-bound state, where voting will be held on 12 May.

The prime minister labelled the Congress a deal party. Congress culture, communalism, casteism, crime, corruption and contract system were the six Cs destroying Karnataka’s future, Modi added at the rally in Bangarpet near Bengaluru. This election is not limited to victory or defeat. It will decide the future of Karnataka, added Modi.

The prime minister asked the gathering whether it was not a reflection of the Congress president’s “arrogance”.

He also wanted to know whether it did not show the state of internal democracy in the Congress party.

Modi said during Manmohan Singh’s tenure as the prime minister, the remote control of the government was with the then Congress president Sonia Gandhi, but in the four years of the Modi’s rule, it was with the people.
