Congress star campaigner and yesteryear Tollywood superstar Vijays Shanti on Saturday scored high on abusive name calling.
In the presence of Congress president Rahul Gandhi in a campaign rally in Shamshabad, in the state of Telangana, she said, “Modi is looking like a terrorist. Instead of loving people, he is scaring people”.
Her comments came within a month of the dastardly terror attack on CRPF jawans in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, which caused a global outrage. Some 59 countries condemned the terror emanating from Pakistan and called for dismantling terror network in that country.
Vijays Shanti’s comment is interpreted as a panic reaction to the airstrikes, which the Indian Air Force carried out on terror camps in Pakistan, post the Pulwama attack. For, surveys to gauge the mood of the people post the airstrikes suggest that the popularity of Narendra Modi has seen a dramatic upswing.
