Nadda slams Misa for remark against PM

Claims, half of INDIA bloc leaders either in jail or on bail in corruption cases


SIDHI (MP): BJP chief J P Nadda on Friday hit out at RJD leader Misa Bharti for her jail remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and claimed that half of the INDIA bloc leaders were either in jail or out on bail in corruption cases.

He also said the opposition alliance has become frantic, sensing its defeat in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.

Misa Bharti, daughter of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, during a recent public meeting in Patliputra Lok Sabha constituen­cy in Bihar from where she is contesting as her party nominee, attacked the Centre and said if the INDIA bloc comes to power, PM Modi would be behind bars.

Nadda, while addressing

an election meeting here, said, “Half of the INDI alliance leaders are either in jail or out on bail in corruption cases. Do you want to hand over the

government to such people? INDI alliance has become frantic as its leaders have sensed that their defeat is imminent. They are fighting a lost battle and hurling abuses at Modiji in desperatio­n.”

“Yesterday, Misa Bharti said that if their government comes to power, Modiji will be sent to jail. Modiji served as Gujarat chief minister for 12 years and as prime minister for 10 years without a blemish. He served the country considerin­g it as a family. But Misa Bharti, the daughter of Lalu Yadav, is using such type of language,” he said.

“Lalu Yadav is out on bail. Is his wife Rabri on bail? Is their family not facing corruption charges - land-for-job scam, fodder scam - such type of people are speaking this language. Do you all accept such a type of language?” he asked the audience.

He said people were standing firmly behind PM Modi.
