Mishra calls Modi ‘ISI agent’, draws BJP’s ire

Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra on Tuesday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi an “ISI agent”, drawing a sharp reaction from the BJP and its supporters on social media.

“Do we have a ISI agent as PM now?? Its very serious the way PM is surrendering to anti India forces? [sic]”, tweeted the Minister, who has been at the forefront of the AAP protests against the BJP-led Union government for inviting a Pakistan team to investigate the Pathankot terror attack.

As Mr. Modi’s supporters started trolling Mr. Mishra, the Minister in his replies asked “if calling ISI to India was valid and who was going to take responsibility for the insult to India and its people?”

Condemning the tweet, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, “Such use of words for a Prime Minister for cheap politics and lust of power amounts to insult of Indian people.” Mr. Mishra’s tweets comes four months after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called Mr. Modi a “coward and a psychopath”, following CBI raids on his office in December last year.
