Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday took a jibe at the Congress, saying when the misdeeds of the grand old party are questioned, they reply back saying ‘hua toh hua’ (so what, if it happened).

“They ask for votes in the name of their ancestors, but when questioned on their (ancestors) misdeeds, they say ‘hua to hua’,” Modi said at a rally in Bathinda. Modi was referring to Congress leader Sam Pitroda’s ‘hua toh hua’ remark on 1984 anti-Sikh riots. “The Congress is in chaos because the truth is out about what it had always had in its heart for years. The statement exposes the insensitivity of the Congress and traditions it follows,” said Modi.

Addressing the gathering, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal said the Congress is trying to implicate the Akali leadership in sacrilege cases.

Earlier, at a rally in Himachal’s Solan, the Prime Minister said while the Congress was running a campaign to defame him, he was running a campaign to uplift India’s image globally.

“This ‘naamdar’ (dynast) said openly that he is running a campaign to defame and defeat me. But Modi’s mission is uplifting our country’s image abroad,” he said .
