Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that the language that the Prime Minister use against him does not befit the office he holds.
''The language you use against me does not befit the office you hold,'' news agency PTI reported quoting Rahul Gandhi.
Addressing his first rally since February to build BJP momentum for the upcoming Karnataka assembly elections, Modi challenged Rahul to speak for 15 minutes in any language including his “mother’s mother tongue”.
Referring to Congress president Rahul Gandhi as “naamdaar” (dynast) and himself a “kaamdaar” (worker) Prime Minister Narendra Modi also accused the Congress of being anti-worker and pro-dynasty in its policies.
Modi's challenge to Rahul Gandhi to speak for 15 minutes in any language including his “mother’s mother tongue, drew widespread criticism from several political leaders who also expressed a similar opinion.
