Keeping up his sling of attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said the Prime Minister does not see anybody’s pain, he only talks about his ‘Mann ki Baat’, never about the work that needs to be done. The Congress leader also said usually, there is a producer, directer and actor in a film but in Modi’s film, he is the actor, director and producer.

The Congress vice-president’s remarks come shortly after PM Modi traded barbs with the SP-Congress alliance and Bahujan Samaj party in the seven-phase Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

While Yadav said that Gujarat is promoting donkeys for its tourism, the PM, a former chief minister of Gujarat, responded by saying that donkeys are hard working and loyal and that he drew inspiration from them.

Modi-led BJP and the Rahul Gandhi-Akhilesh Yadav led SP-Congress alliance are rivals in poll bound Uttar Pradesh. The two have been attacking each other at campaign rallies and other platforms (such as Twitter) alike in a bid to score more votes and downplay the opponent. Name calling has peaked this election season, with PM Modi, Akhilesh Yadav, Rahul Gandhi and BSP supremo Mayawati missing no opportunity to launch personal attacks on each other.

Spearheading the BJP’s election campaign in the state, Modi has left no stone un-turned in attacking the party chiefs of rivals. The party has not declared any chief ministerial candidate for the UP elections. Besides Modi, BJP national president Amit Shah has been holding election rallies in the state.

    Pappu is a crying baby who seeks public attention by doing funny things. May be he needs a quick trip to Europe to meet her girl friend there.

      Dear Mr. hi ,lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Modi is the only politician in independent india who can talk strategy (which is big ideas) break it down to how it will be achieved in a tactical steps . He then goes and execute shows the dashboard with data on progress. He has a leader communicates effectively making common man understand the link between strategy and excution i.e connects the dots. Example is improve life and income of farmers ...thats a statement now execution is improvement in MSP , Soil card so that farmer can improve productivity, Crop insurance which is real and effective and focus on economy and price that reduces rate of interest and gives access to cheap loans , connecting villages with electricity and providing water to more farm lands.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;In all the above areas can see clear excution and dashboard .lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I've been following you for last 15 years and frankly i just hear you during elections making jibes at others . We still are waiting to hear from you on what you stand for and how you are going to execute . Its a irony that you were leading the country for 10 years hiding behind with zero accountability . Forget about Modi tell the nation what 1 thing you have done for the people of india .
