‘Tea-seller can’t become PM’

In an apparent dig at BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agarwal on Wednesday said that a person who used to sell tea cannot have a national perspective.

‘Narendra Modi wants to become a PM. Someone rising from a tea shop can never have a national perspective. Like, if you make a ‘sipahi’ (constable) as ‘kaptan’ (superintendent of police) he can never have SP’s approach but will have that of a constable,’ Agarwal said in comments that could stoke a controversy.

Addressing a gathering here, Agarwal also said the prime minister of a country has to be an able person of national stature.
