JAIPUR, Nov 21:  “PM means Panauti Modi,” Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said at an election rally in Rajasthan on Tuesday insinuating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi brings bad luck.

Referring to India’s loss in the cricket world cup final against Australia, Gandhi used the term associated with bad luck. The word ‘panauti’ has been trending on social media since the defeat in the match, attended by Prime Minister Modi at the Ahmedabad stadium named after him.

Gandhi alleged Modi diverts people’s attention while industrialist Adani picks their pockets.

He said Modi “comes on TV and says ‘Hindu- Muslim’ and sometimes goes to a cricket match. It is a different matter that the match was lost. Panauti.”

“PM means Panauti Modi,” Gandhi continued.

Meanwhile, the BJP on Tuesday lashed out at Rahul for his “panauti Modi” barb against the Prime Minister, slamming his remarks as “shameful and disgraceful” and demanding an apology from him.

Hitting back, senior BJP leader and former Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said Gandhi’s remarks about the prime minister of the country was “shameful, condemnable and disgraceful”.

He has shown his true colours but he must remember as to how the Congress has sunk in Gujarat after his mother Sonia Gandhi called Modi, then chief minister of the state, “maut ka saudagar”.

“I vehemently condemn Rahul Gandhi’s comment about the prime minister,” Prasad told reporters when asked for his reaction to the Congress leader’s remarks. (PTI)
