Modi: UPA government had released a stamp on Gujarat’s donkeys
Responding to the donkey remarks made by the UP chief minister at a poll meeting in Rae Bareli three days ago, Modi said the criticism of donkeys by Akhilesh only reflected his “casteist mentality”. Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that he was amused that chief minister Akhilesh Yadav was “afraid” of the donkeys of Gujarat but he on his part takes inspiration from the “loyal” and “hard working” animal. He said, “This feeling of hatred does not suit you,” and added that his alliance partner Congress, which led the erstwhile UPA government, had even released a stamp on Gujarat’s donkeys. “Akhilkesji, you might hate the donkeys of Gujarat but it was that very state which gave birth to Dayanand Saraswati, Mahatma Gandhi...and Lord Krishan chose to stay,” he said.
