Patna: While speaking at an event organised by the Vaishya and Kanu (OBC) communities on Monday, Bihar BJP president and Lok Sabha MP Nityanand Rai said that PM Modi has defied all odds to become the prime minister. His journey is a pride for all of us and ‘if any finger or hand was raised against him’. it would be broken or chopped off, he stated.
The Bihar BJP president recalled his poverty and said: “When Narendra Modi’s mother would serve food to him, neither she would see her son in that plate nor the son would see the mother. From such circumstances, he has grown to be PM — the son of a poor, each individual should be honoured by this.”
He added, “any finger or hand raised against the PM, we should get together to either broken or, if need be, chop it off.”
Deputy CM, Sushil Modi was also present with Rai and shared the stage with him during the function.
When The Indian Express reached Rai regarding his statement, he said that he used ‘breaking fingers and chopping hands’ statement only as a proverb.
Sushil Modi also spoke at the event and said that the RJD did not give a single ticket to Kanu community members.
Meanwhile, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav said: “How can BJP talk about pride, something it does not have?”
