Sensing that irresponsible statements by party leaders and members of the Sangh Parivar may derail his pro-development poll campaign, BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Tuesday sent out a stern message saying petty statements by claiming to be well wishers of BJP are deviating the campaign.
Though Modi did not name any individual, Modi expression of unhappiness can be seen as his disapproval of the vitriolic rants by the likes of Pravin Togadia and BJP leader Giriraj Singh.
Modi tweeted: “With great happiness, the entire nation is looking towards BJP for going to people solely on the issues of good governance & development.”
“Petty statements by those claiming to be BJP’s well wishers are deviating the campaign from the issues of development & good governance.”
Modi’s attempt to set the record state comes amid suggestions that certain sections with the BJP and the larger Sangh Parivar are actively trying to discredit and derail his campaign given the increasing possibility that he will actually make it to 7 Race Race Course Road on May 16.
The Congress has also responded to Modi’s tweets. Senior party leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, “Modi has not even cancelled ticket of Giriraj Singh,so these are crocodile tears.”
