New Delhi, August 11 (KMS): Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has slammed the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his “black magic” remark, saying that he must “stop lowering the dignity” of the PM’s post by talking about such superstitious things.
Rahul Gandhi’s remarks came a day after Narendra Modi criticized the Congress leaders for wearing black clothes on August 5 in protest against price rise, saying those who believe in “kala jadu” will never be able to win the trust of the people again.
Rahul Gandhi asked if the Prime Minister was unable to see inflation or unemployment in the country.
“Stop lowering the dignity of the Prime Minister’s post and misleading the country by talking about superstitious things like ‘black magic’ to hide your black deeds, Prime Minister-ji,” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
You will have to give answers on people’s issues, the former Congress chief added.
Addressing a function in Panipat via video-conferencing, Narendra Modi had said, “On August 5, we saw how some people tried to spread ‘black magic’. These people think that by wearing black clothes they can end their despondency.”
“But they do not know that by engaging in witchcraft, black magic and superstition, they cannot earn the trust of people again,” he had said.
