"Whole country is his family": BJP MP blasts Lalu Prasad over comments on PM Modi

New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party MP Sudhanshu Trivedi on Monday lashed out at RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav for his recent remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The comments were made during a rally in Patna on Sunday.

"At an INDI rally in Patna yesterday, Lalu Prasad made an offensive remark about PM Modi. His comments about the family of Modiji were unfortunate and painful," Trivedi said at a press conference in the national capital.

"... I want to remind everyone that for him (PM Modi), the whole country is his family... Ever since Narendra Modi became Prime Minister, he celebrates Diwali with soldiers on the border. They are his family... When he left his family to dedicate himself to his country, that very moment he pledged that the whole nation is his family," Trivedi said.

Hailing PM Modi, the BJP spokesperson said, "He did not take a single leave in his tenure".

Lashing out at INDIA bloc leaders, Trivedi said, "...For the INDI alliance there are no Hindus. For them, Hindus are backward, Dalit, 'Savarn', North Indian, South Indian, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Punjabi, Bengali, and even Hindi, but not Hindu".

Without taking any specific name, the BJP spokesperson took a dig at the Congress, "Because they want to see India in pieces. A family divided the country to get into politics and today, they stand with those who want to divide India so that they get to rule at least one division of the country".

Lalu Yadav, while addressing the party's 'Jan Vishwas Maha Rally' in Patna on Sunday, said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi just spreads hatred in the name of religion.

"These days he is talking about dynastic politics. You (PM Modi) don't have a family. You are not even a Hindu. When your mother died, every Hindu, as per tradition, shaves his beard and head. Why did you not shave? You only spread hatred in society," RJD Chief Lalu Yadav had said.

Meanwhile, the BJP today launched a major online campaign 'Modi Ka Parivar' with several top leaders, including Amit Shah and JP Nadda, adding the suffix on their social media handles in solidarity with Narendra Modi.

Addressing a rally in Adilabad in Telangana, the PM said, "I question their dynastic politics, they say Modi does not have a family, my life is an open book...I will live for my country."

"The leaders of the INDI alliance, deeply engrossed in corruption, nepotism and appeasement, are becoming nervous. When I question their 'Parivarvad', they have started saying that Modi has no family," the Prime Minister said".

"My life is an open book, 140 crore people of the country are my family. Today, crores of daughters, mothers and sisters of the country are Modi's family. Every poor person in the country is my family. Those who have no one, they also belong to Modi and Modi belongs to them. They say 'Nene Modi Kutumbam' (I'm Modi family)," he said.
