Only a few days back, Union law and IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad compared the problems faced due to the demonetisation of old high-value currency notes to labour pain and left people quite perplexed. “People will face a little problem. But the pain is like the one that a woman in labour undergoes. Eventually one will experience the joy like one does hearing the first cry of a baby,” he had said. Though, this analogy is nothing new for BJP members.

And now, the minister has compared PM Narendra Modi to the holy river Ganga in his response to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s allegations of corruption against the Prime Minister. At a press conference, Prasad said Modi was “pure like the Ganga” and an “epitome of honesty”, the minister even accused Gandhi of diverting attention from Agusta Westland helicopter scam.

“I condemn the irresponsible and shameful allegations of Rahul Gandhi… The public will never believe this. The country could not expect anything else from Rahul Gandhi who had been the second most important person in the Congress, whose whole history stinks with corruption. The saga of the Congress is to promote looters of public money and protect them,” he said, adding the Congress leader was quite thoughtless in his allegations.

Prasad was massively trolled on Twitter for his comment earlier and Twitter can’t get over the ‘Ganga’ comment either. The space is flooded with Ganga memes and even jokes on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

    Stop playing Tamilnadu politics. I hope Mr. PRASAD does not take Modi's blessings ever time he sees him.

        Mr. RVishankar the issue is not whether modiji is pavitra or not but whether allegations of corruption are true or not.Only modi ji can tell . RVishankar has forgotten near past when modiji and bjp leaders every used to make allegations of corruption against congress and other parties minister and demanding their resignations forthwith..Now why bjp is running away.It is also shocking the silence of RSS . Is RSS like BJP is control by Modi-shaha pvt.ltd.

          Atleast in Kaliyuga, we cant compare anyone as pure as Ganga. Ganga gives life to millions of soul, purifies our body and soul. He must be praising as he wants to be good in books of his superior and must be targetting for promotions. Human nature.

            When our g children will look back they will know that he is one who made India one of the greatest economic power in the world. Indians around the world will not be seen as the "snake charmer" people. His name is Narender Damodar Modi. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;He is the greatest leader that India has ever produced.
