‘If you love India, it means you are voting for Modi’

“A vote for the Congress is a vote for Pakistan,” BJP leader and former MLA Sanjay Patil said in Chikkodi on Thursday.

“It is the responsibility of all of us here that we bring back to power a great patriot like Prime Minister Narendra Modi. If you love India, it means that you are voting for Mr. Modi. But if you vote for the Congress, it means you are voting for Pakistan,” he said.

“A vote for the Congress is a vote for Pakistan,” he repeated.

He was speaking at a campaign rally for Anna Saheb Jolle, BJP nominee from Chikkodi.

The bilingual leader went on to speak in Marathi later.

“Congress leaders say that they see Indira Gandhi in Priyanka Gandhi. But I see Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in Narendra Modi,” Mr. Patil said.

He said that AICC president Rahul Gandhi was not taking care of his aged mother Sonia Gandhi. “It is strange to see that such a person is dreaming of becoming the prime minister. How can someone who cannot take care of his mother take care of the country?” Mr. Patil said.
