Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks on “Congress being old party” have drawn sharp reactions from state Congress leaders, who alleged that Chief Minister has lost control over his language because of frustration.

While campaigning for BJP in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Narendra Modi had said that Congress is “a 125-year old-budhia party” (old party) and it cannot work for development of the country.

“People of Gujarat are known for their culture. In our culture, even an enemy is also treated with respect. But unfortunately, Chief Minister has lost control over his language,” Opposition leader Shaktisinh Gohil said.

He said that frustration is gripping BJP and its leaders like Narendra Modi, Varun Gandhi and others, who are losing control and discretion on their tongue.

Before making such ridiculous remarks in order “to gain cheap publicity” Chief Minister should look at LK Advani, BJP’s PM in waiting, who is 81, Gohil said.

He said that such derogatory and disparaging remarks are expected of “uncultured persons like Modi” only.
