BJP MP from Bihar's Darbhanga Hukumdeo Narayan Yadav has described Congress president Sonia Gandhi as a "characterless daughter-in-law" wanting to make her in-laws house bankrupt.
Addressing a public gathering, mainly comprising BJP workers in Sanand, while referring to FDI in retail sector, Yadav said, "Sonia aayi hai videshi company laayi hai, gulam banana chahti hai (Sonia has brought foreign companies who want to make the country slave)."
As the crowd cheered with Bharat mata ki jai slogans, Yadav went on on, "Kulakshini bahu hai ki sasural ko bhi kangaal banana chahti hai (She is a characterless daughter-in-law out to make her in-laws home bankrupt)."
"This (Gujarat election) is not a fight of Narendra Modi alone. This is not just a fight for hoisting tricolour in Gandhinagar but also Modi hoisting the national flag at the Red Fort in New Delhi in 2014. This is a war that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel had to face who was branded a Hindutva leader for renovating the Somnath temple. After Sardar Patel, some anti-nationals are after Modi for being a Hindu leader. The tradition of indulging in anti-national activities still exists and people like king Man Singh, who compromised with his dignity for the sake of his crown, continue to be in power. But we also have leaders like Maharana Pratap who fought against the Mughals," Yadav said in his 20-minute speech.
