Lockdown may be extended with ‘change in work style’

While the parties were near unanimous about extending the lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the concerns of DBT and emphasised the need to work differently to run the economy

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday mocked Congress president Rahul Gandhi, saying he keeps repeating things like a stuck gramophone but people would not accept his “childish” claims and “lies” against the government as they make “fun” of such remarks.

With the campaign for assembly elections in five states underway and the Lok Sabha polls less than six months away, he stressed on his development plank during a video interaction with BJP workers, asking them to go to people with a three-point agenda — development, fast development and development for all.

To a question from a worker as to how they should respond to opposition leaders’ “abuses” like calling him a scorpion — an apparent reference to Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s recent remarks, Modi said they were offering him what they had.

He was glad, the prime minister said, that he was of any use to them as it allows them to vent their anger and spend their time “happily” with their family members in the evening.

Citing an anonymous RSS functionary’s comments to a journalist, Tharoor had said that Modi was like a scorpion sitting on a Shivlinga which can neither be removed from hand nor hit with a chappal.

Modi, however, made fun of Gandhi when a party worker asked him as to how they should respond to the Congress president’s comments in his rallies that there should be mobile manufacturing factories in those areas.

“There used to be gramophone records earlier. At times, it would get stuck and play the same words again and again. There are some people like it. One thing occupies their mind and they keep repeating it. You should enjoy it. Don’t get tense,” he told BJP workers.

These people don’t know that time had changed and it was no longer easy to fool people, Modi said, adding that nobody accepts such childish remarks. People make fun of it, he said.

India had become a leading manufacturer of mobiles with over 100 factories producing them now under his government compared to only two that existed when he came to power in 2014, Modi said.

He wondered if mobile was invented after he became prime minister as he attacked the previous government.
