Modi is anti-poor, anti-women, can’t spell agriculture: Cong

After EU Ambassadors meeting Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi in the national capital, the Congress on Friday attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader for being ‘anti-poor and anti-women’ and one ‘who does not know how to spell agriculture’.

Congress spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary sidelined questions on the ‘clean chit’ given to Modi by the European Union and instead asked whether the controversial chief minister has got visa from the US.

‘He has no respect for his own wife or someone else’s wife...He is anti-poor, anti-rural development, anti-women. He lives in urban fantasies, and he does not know how to spell agriculture,’ Chowdhary said.

Asked about the reported statements of JD-U chief Sharad Yadav implying that the corporates were backing Modi, Chowdhary said that the JD-U leader was intelligent and was not given to making accusation without substantive evidence.

The Congress attack came at a time when there has been growing chorus in sections of the BJP and the Sangh Parivar to make Modi as PM candidate of the party and reports of envoys of EU countries having a lunch with Modi as part of efforts to engage with him.
