After BJP MP Vijay Goel, a party leader in New Delhi has now put up hoardings in the city likening Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Mahatma Gandhi.

Hoardings praising Modi and the Mahatma as “favourite sons of Gujarat” have been put up by coordinator of BJP UP’s business cell Vineet Agarwal Sharda in Shastri Nagar, Abu lane and near the district court.

However, State BJP president Laxmi Kant Bajpai said the party leadership doesn’t agree with such a comparison.

“I don’t agree with such a comparison and it only shows the political immaturity of that person,” Bajpai told PTI. Congress termed it an “act of sycophancy”.

“By comparing Narendra Modi with Mahatma Gandhi, BJP leaders have crossed all limits of sycophancy. Modi is, maybe, the second Mahatma for BJP but for the people of India, he can never be Mahatma Gandhi,” said UP Congress chief Chaudhary Yashpal Singh.

Samajwadi Party leader Gopal Agarwal said BJP is trying to “tease the populace” by trying to compare Narendra Modi with the Mahatma.

Goel, a Delhi BJP MP, had yesterday put up a hoarding in front of his official residence likening the Prime Minister to the Mahatma, inviting sharp reactions from rival parties.

      Modi is more mahatma than the his. Who told you that the Mahatama got us freedom? Freedom was given not only because of hi but also for several people who laid their lives. Just because text books say great things about hi does not mean he got us the freedom. Do some more research.

        Actually its very wrong to compare Taklu hi with Modiji. hi was hindu enemy who allowed landa muslims to stay in india, even when we gave them hindu land to create muslim country. every death of hindu in the hands of muslims in independent india is due to hi today, he was islamic terrorist, he was ugly, he was more dangerous than ISIS terrorist. Dont dare to compare modiji with taklu hi

          India is seeing it's second freedom. An economic freedom, freedom from corruption and vote bank politics. Freedom from dynastic politics. Modi (and BJP) are ushering in an new era of truly free India.
