Congress president comments PM Modi as “Poisonous Snake”, heats up political controversy before assembly elections

BENGALURU: The Indian political atmosphere seems to be heating up after Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge made a comment about Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling him a “poisonous snake” during a rally in Kalburgi. The statement has been met with strong reactions from both the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress Party.

Union Minister and senior BJP leader Dharmendra Pradhan, responding to Kharge’s statement, said, “Such words are not acceptable in a democracy. We feel that Kharge ji must have had some compulsion, he has used such words to satisfy his masters.” He also pointed out that the Congress Party’s leader, Sonia Gandhi, had also previously called the Prime Minister a “merchant of death.”

The Congress Party, on the other hand, has clarified that Kharge’s statement was not a personal attack on the Prime Minister, but rather a comment on his and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) ideology. Kharge later said during an election program in Shirhatti, Karnataka, “There is no personal attack on anyone.”

The BJP has been quick to denounce the Congress Party’s comments, calling them “anti-national” and “insulting to the Prime Minister.” The Congress Party, however, has defended its stance, stating that it is merely criticizing the BJP’s ideology and policies.
