Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over soaring dal prices, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Thursday twisted the BJP poll slogan of Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi, saying “a new slogan is becoming popular in villages: Arhar Modi, Arhar Modi”.

Participating in a Lok Sabha debate on price rise, Rahul asked the government to set a date by which prices of dal would come down: “During elections, Modiji said make me a chowkidar (watchman). Now, there is theft of dal under the very nose of the chowkidar. But the chowkidar has not uttered a word.”
