Infra dig: Rahul aide's 'POT' jibe at PM Modi

Infra dig: Rahul aide's 'POT' jibe at PM Modi”

Divya alias Ramya, former Mandya MP, had on Sunday taken a dig at Modi, wondering if he was on "pot" (cannabis), a putdown which invited sharp criticism.

Reacting to the tweet, Ramya continued her sarcastic vein replete with emojis, writing: "You didn't want to tag me cos you didn't want people to watch the Modi video pinned on my timeline?"

"I'm saying it generally; I will not speak disrespectful of Narendra Modi personally". We are in a federal structure. We have accepted the constitution. We have to run the government in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution. "We are not BJP to go against the constitution", he said. Modi said while delivering his speech "The farmers who grow vegetables and fruits like tomatoes, onions and potatoes are also top priority for us".

They have insisted that the Congress take action against the actor-politician, just the way Mani Shankar Aiyar was suspended for his comment that the PM was a neech aadmi (inferior person) in the run-up to the Gujarat elections last December. "Or sacrificing his close aide, responsible for his rise as a leader, takes some courage?" he said in another tweet.

According to sources it was stated that in response to the Prime Minister stating that he had given "TOP" priority to farmers, expanding the acronym to mean tomato, onion and potato.

Though the "POT" innuendo tickled some in social media sites, it did not sit well with the BJP. And that should be done intelligently.
