Days after his ‘impotent’ remark, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid has fired a fresh salvo at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, calling him a nursery student who thinks he is a PhD.
Speaking to mediapersons in Farrukhabad, Khurshid referred to the ‘clean chit’ to Modi in connection with the 2002 Gujarat riots, saying the Supreme Court has never given one to the BJP leader. He further pointed that it was a lower court which merely did not send any summon to the Gujarat Chief Minister, which was considered a clean chit.
The veteran Congress leader then went on to say: “It’s like a nursery student, who after securing good marks is assuming himself to be a doctor and a PhD.”
“In Gujarat, the incidents that happened when he (Modi) was Chief Minister, around 170 people have been given life imprisonment in connection with that. Maya Kodnani was his minister,” he further said.
The remark by Khurshid comes close on the heels of a statement by Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, who demanded “legal accountability” for the “clear and inexcusable failure” of governance during the violence, and dismissed talk of a clean chit to the BJP’s prime ministerial nominee as “politically expedient” but “far too premature”.

However, Rahul had previously expressed his disapproval over a statement of Khurshid wherein he had called Modi ‘impotent’ in connection with the Gujarat riots.
“We don’t accuse you (Modi) of killing people…Hamara aarop hai ki tum ‘napunsak’ (impotent) ho. (Our accusation is that you are impotent). You couldn’t stop the killers,” Khurshid had said.
