Congress leader compares Modi with 'monkey'

Posted on Nov 08, 07:05PM | IBNS

Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Arjun Modhwadia on Thursday started a new controversy as he compared Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi with a 'monkey'.

Modhwadia compared Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to a lion.

Without taking names, Modhwadia said a 'monkey' sitting on the top of a tree was trying to challenge the 'lion'.

"Lions cannot climb trees. However, monkeys can never become a lion," Modhwadia said while addressing a rally in the state.

He said 'some people are bitten by dogs and they are thinking of becoming the Prime Minister'.

Modhwadia even said Modi should be given a Nobel Prize for telling lies.

Modi earlier sparked a controversy when he called Minister of State for Human Resources Development Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar a 'Rs 50-crore girlfriend'.
