ANI Photo | “Abused the public,” Chhattisgarh CM hits out at PM Modi over ‘Murkho ke Sardar’ remark against Rahul Gandhi

Reacting to Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Murkho ke Sardar’ statement on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel alleged that the Prime Minister has ‘abused’ the public with his remarks against the Congress leader.
Speaking to ANI the Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel said, “He has verbally abused the public, verbally abused our leader. PM Modi has become so arrogant that he doesn’t consider anyone before him. Ye ahankar Ravan ka nahi raha toh Modi ka ye ahankar kahan tikega?”
This comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi without taking his name and mocked the Wayanad MP calling him ‘Murkhon KeSardar’ after the latter’s claim on the dominance of “Made in China” mobile phones in India.
Addressing a rally in Betul district of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, the PM took a swipe at the Congress and said that the leaders of the party have this mental disease of not recognising the achievements of their own countrymen.
“One wise leader of the Congress said yesterday that everyone in India has ‘Made in China’ mobile phones. Arre Murkhon ke Sardar, (the leader of stupid people) in which world do you live! The leaders of the Congress have this mental disease of not recognising the achievements of their own countrymen,” the PM said.
He further said that he ‘wondered’ which foreign lens the Congress leaders use as they are absolutely clueless about what is happening in the country.
“The leaders of the Congress are flying so high that they can’t see the poor on the ground and are also clueless about the ground realities,” the Prime Minister said.
Further, he claimed that India has now become the second leading manufacturer of mobile phones in the world.
Shortly after, the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) indulged in a war of words over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks on Rahul Gandhi.
Hitting back at PM Modi, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel said that the PM has ‘abused’ the public with his remarks against the Congress leader.”
“The Prime Minister’s ego has increased so much that now he is abusing the public,” he said.
However, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the public to which Baghel was referring would be living on some other planet, not in India.
Sarma also said that what the PM spoke about Rahul Gandhi is ‘definitely true’.
Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary also reacted to the same and said on Tuesday that the Prime Minister was already aware of the results of the assembly elections which is why he has used such “foul language”.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked the BJP government and claimed that the Indian market is being dominated by Chinese products.
“Today, we see ‘Made in China’ on shirts, cameras, mobile phones. Have you ever seen ‘Made in Madhya Pradesh’ written on any product? The Congress wants to start factories in Madhya Pradesh so that the youth of the state get job opportunities. We hope a day comes when a youth takes out his mobile phone in China and that phone has been manufactured in Madhya Pradesh,” Rahul had said at a rally in Madhya Pradesh
