During a live television debate on Saturday, Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said that the last name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi stood for Masood (Azhar), Osama (Bin Laden), Dawood (Ibrahim) and ISI (Pakistan’s Inter Services).
The bizarre statement drew jeers from the audience that erupted with a ‘shame, shame’ cry. Later it led to the top trending hash tag #ShameOnCongress Sunday morning.
Last month, Pawan Khera had made another outlandish statement about Prime Minister Modi.
Mocking a campaign slogan of the BJP, which says “If there is Modi, it is possible”, Khera said he heard that Modi would get a diamond facial costing Rs 8 lakh every morning and eats mushroom costing Rs 80,000 a kilo.
“If it is Modi, it is possible,” he said turning the slogan on its head.
