Terming BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as Hitler and SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav as Mussolini, Union Steel Minister Beni Prasad Verma Sunday alleged that the two leaders have a tacit understanding to polarise votes.
"Hitler has been born in Indian politics, so has Mussolini in Uttar Pradesh. The two leaders had a friendship, and their reincarnations are the same, but of modern type," Beni said talking to the reporters here.
"He (Modi) has become a dictator of Gujarat and Muslims can't dare to speak against Hitler," he said.
Taking a dig at BJP patriarch L K Advani, Beni said the person, who did not attend Goa meeting of BJP Parliamentary Board where Modi was named as the head of 2014 poll campaign committee and had sent his resignation, was now flagging off the 'Run for Unity'.
"Today the terror of Hitler is such that no one can dare to speak in RSS or BJP," he said.
The minister said Modi, who has now found love for Sardar Patel, does not talk about Mahatma Gandhi who made Patel the first "home minister of the country, who is all powerful, even more than the Prime Minister".
Beni alleged that the recent Muzaffarnagar riots were the result of friendship between 'Hitler' and 'Mussolini'.
Regarding Congress' debacle in Assembly elections of four states, Beni said it was the result of internal sabotage. "Let the Parliament end. (party vice-president) Rahul Gandhi is going to make a major reshuffle across the country," he said.
"While the BJP's prime ministerial candidate is hoisting flag from a duplicate Red Fort, Rahul Gandhi will do the same at a real one on Independence Day," he said.
On Aam Aadmi Party's performance in Delhi elections, he said he would not talk about "aam" (mango) and "amrood" (guava).
