GONDA (TIP): It seems that no one can stop Congress leader Beni Prasad Verma from spewing venom against BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. A day after the Election Commission issued a show-cause notice to him for making ‘derogatory’ remarks against Modi, he continue his attack on Friday and called the Gujarat chief minister ‘an animal’.
Addressing an election rally in Gonda, Verma visibly unaffected by the EC’s notice to him said people like Modi were more animal than human. They should be brought to senses, the way animals are, he added. Verma’s attack comes a day after he was issued an EC notice for calling Modi the ‘biggest goon’, and ‘a descendant of Hitler’.
He claimed that as a 20- year-old youth, Modi had committed a ‘major crime’ and had fled from his home. He had also said that Modi would never become the prime minister and go to ‘graveyard’. In the notice, EC had instructed Verma to give a reply by Saturday. Verma had said that if Rahul Gandhi becomes the Prime Minister, Modi and his aide Amit Shah would be jailed for life for Gidhra riots.
