Ahmedabad: The Gujarat polls have become a fiery debate across the state, people are noticing a subtle transformation in the assembly election this time.
There are incidents of taking most of the serious issues into perspective, while a few of them turn to rather jocular.
In one such instance, Congress’ new face, Alpesh Thakor who is an OBC leader claimed that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi consumes five imported mushrooms daily whose cost is 80,000 each, quoted The Indian Express.
“Modi ji eats mushrooms from Taiwan. One mushroom costs Rs 80,000 and he eats 5 mushrooms a day. He was dark like me but he became fair because of these imported mushrooms,” Thakor said while addressing a rally at Radhanpur constituency of Patan district, from where he is contesting.
Likening the BJP to anti-poor, he said that poor can’t afford what PM Modi eats.
“You cannot have what PM Modi eats because it is not a food for the poor. A source told me Modi ji has been eating it since he was the CM of Gujarat. I have seen his earlier photos. He was dark like me, but now he has grown fairer,” Thakor said.
