On Monday, while showing his own torn kurta, Congress vice-president, Rahul Gandhi commented on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's clothes when addressing the audience from the stage in Rishikesh, Uttrakhand.
Gandhi continued his attack on Modi and took a dig at RSS during his speech.
While slamming Modi for many other things, Gandhi stopped his speech midway and showed the torn pocket of his white kurta to the crowd. His antics with the kurta earned him a roaring response from the crowd.
Mera pocket/kurta phata ho toh mujhe farak nahi padta,lekin Modi Ji ka kapda kabhi nahi phata hoga aur vo gareeb ki rajneeti karte hain:RG pic.twitter.com/oDLEIICai0— ANI (@ANI_news) January 16, 2017
Gandhi said, "Mera kurta phata hua hai, lekin Modiji ka kurta kabhi phata hua nahi milta. Bade paisewaalo ke saath unki photo milegi" (I wear a torn kurta but you'll never see Modiji in a torn kurta. You'll only find his photographs with the rich people of the world.)
He went on to add, "I am doing politics for the poor. Modiji's photo appears with the super rich."
