While he set the two Congress leaders side by side to the villains in Ramayana, Gandhi said the role of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is that of Lord Ram.
“My Modi is in the role of Lord Ram and Congress president Rahul Gandhi is Ravana and his sister Priyanka Surpanakha,” PTI quoted him as saying.
“Ravana has put up his sister against my Ram,” he said. “Rest assured that Lanka will be conquered,” the Bharatiya Janata Party legislator said referring to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry into politics.
“By appointing Priyanka as general secretary, Rahul has already proved his incapability to fight against Modi. Now the brother and the sister will fight together,” he said.
Praising the Prime Minister, he said, “How will they face the character and uprightness of Modi? It is a matter of honour that we have a leader like him.”
Calling the appointment of Priyanka a “joke”, Singh said, “This is a democracy. How does the sister become a general secretary? Now the brother-in-law will also come into politics.”
Referring to the Gandhis, Singh said that “these people” are not familiar with Indian culture, which can be looked after only by someone with a personality like that of Modi.
Priyanka Gandhi was recently inducted into active politics by Rahul Gandhi, who appointed her the party general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh. The region holds significance as Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency Varanasi and Gandhi family bastions of Rae Bareli and Amethi fall under it.
Earlier, he has termed Modi a reincarnation of Lord Ram who along with party president Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath would bring a Ram Rajya in the country.
