Speaking at a rally in Telangana's Shamshabad in which party president Rahul Gandhi was present, the actress-turned-politician Vijaya Shanti said, "Every person is scared of which bomb Modi will drop at which minute. He is appearing like a terrorist. Instead of loving his people, he is scaring them. This is not a characteristic of a Prime Minister," referring to decisions like demonetisation.
Rahul Gandhi at the same rally alleged that Modi was making "two Indias" - one for the poor and the other for wealthy and rich people. "Since last five years, he [Modi] is making two Indias - one is of wealthy people like Anil Ambani who travel in private planes and achieve what they like. While in second India, farmers beg with folded hands for loan waiver while Finance Minister Arun Jaitley says that there is no policy of waving farm loans," the Congress chief said.
Earlier during 2017 Gujarat elections, veteran Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar called the Prime Minister "neech". Following which 77-year-old leader was rebuked by Mr Gandhi and suspended from the Congress for eight months.
