Modi is narrow-minded: Akhilesh
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday targetted his Gujarat counterpart and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and said he is too narrow-minded to become the PM of India.
"The prime minister of a country should have a large heart. A narrow-minded, communal person cannot be India's PM," Akhilesh said without naming Modi.
Earlier, his father and Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav had attacked Modi and the BJP first kills Muslims and then apologise.
"After (committing) mass murders, the BJP is now seeking an apology. Can this be accepted? You think are we fools?" Mulayam had said while addressing the 'Desh Banao, Desh Bachao' rally at Parade Ground in Allahabad on Mar 2.
Targeting Modi further, he said, "When you did 'katleyaam' in Gujarat, you threatened me that if I lost my life, you wouldn't be responsible. But I still went to Gujarat, as I was not worried about my life."
