Modi protected by mothers and sisters, no stick can harm: PM

Agency News

Giving a befitting reply to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address at Kokrajhar in Assam said: "One with a protective shield of mothers and sisters of the country cannot be harmed"

PM Modi, at an event in Assam's Kokrajhar, said: "Mothers and sisters have come to bless me in such huge numbers. Sometimes people talk of beating me with sticks. This Modi, who is protected by blessings of so many mothers and sisters, no stick can harm him."

Rahul Gandhi had made the comments at an election rally in Delhi. "The way Narendra Modi is making speeches, in six months he will not be able to leave his house. The youth of India will beat him with dandas (sticks), and show him that this country cannot move ahead with giving jobs to the youth," the MP had said on Wednesday.

For the second time in two days, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's "beating him with danda (stick)" comment, this time before a large gathering in Assam. Yesterday in Parliament, PM had referred to the comment - made by the Congress MP at a Delhi election rally - in parliament while replying to a debate.
