Taking a dig at the presence of cricketer Irfan Pathan in a BJP election rally in Gujarat, external affairs minister Salman Khurshid said chief minister Narendra Modi appeared to be worried as he was seemingly pulling live or dead rabbits out of the hat.

In response to a reporter's question on Pathan being seen along with Modi, Khurshid said though he had not been able to visit Gujarat because of a series of visits.

"As an observer of the election process, I am a little bit surprised that he (Modi) is having to pull out rabbits, seemingly so many live or dead rabbits out of the hat. Looks like a worried person," he said.

Pathan today shared the stage with Modi in the campaign rally of BJP in Kheda.
