Congress General Secretary Digvijya a Singh took a dig at BJP's prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi for his frequent gaffes at poll rallies and asked the saffron party to arrange history lessons for him.
"These days BJP is in the grip of Modi fever, but the BJP's prime ministerial candidate is not even aware of the history which was taught in XII standard in schools," Singh said addressing a poll meeting last night at Azad Nagar.
Taking a jibe at Modi, he said, "BJP should arrange tuitions for him so that he will have the correct knowledge of history."
Recently, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had during a rally in Patna said that Modi had in his "excitement" given out wrong historical information. Acting like a "knowledgeable person", Modi referred to Chandragupta as great king of Gupta dynasty instead of Maurya dynasty, which ruled from Patliputra, which is now Patna, he said.
"The BJP leader in excitement cited wrong history by saying Taxila was a great historical site in Bihar which is wrong as the place is in northwest Pakistan," Kumar had said.
Terming Modi as "Feku No. 1," Singh said that "he has a collection of Modi's 300 lies and he would be uploading them on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter."
Referring to senior BJP leaders L K Advani and Keshubhai Patel, Singh said "the hands which have promoted Modi in politics, he has cut them and now is the turn of BJP President Rajnath Singh."
Attacking Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for making tall claims about development, the Congress leader termed him as "Feku No. 2."
Singh said that though a CD containing corruption allegations against Chouhan's brother Narendra has come out, police is not registering case against him as he is the
brother of the chief minister.
