India May 11 : Cricketer turned Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, known for his trademark witty one-liners,hurled a sexist jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that Modi is like a new bride who only makes noise with bangles just to show off that she is working.
jSidhu today said, “Modi Ji uss dulhan ki tarah hain jo roti kum baelti hai aur chudiyaan zada khankati hai taaki mohalle walon ko yeh pata chale ki woh kaam kar rahi hai. Bas yahi hua hai Modi sarkaar mein (Modiji is like that bride who makes noise with her bangles instead of cooking chapattis so that neighbours know that work is being done. This is what has happened in Modi government)”.
Continuing his onslaught, the Punjab cabinet minister accused Modi of being the business manager of Ambani and Adani and called him “liar-in-chief and divider-in-chief” in reference to Time magazine’s cover dated May 20, 2019.
“I blame the Prime Minister so that future generations do not blame us for not doing anything when the country was being looted by the BJP,” Sidhu said while addressing a rally in Indore.
The former cricketer, who joined the Congress in 2017 after two consecutive terms (2004-2014) as the BJP parliamentarian from Amritsar, also targeted the Prime Minister over the Rafale fighter jet deal earlier this week.
e also attacked PM Modi on the “chowkidar” and “chor” front and said the Congress would free the people of Indore from “kaale angrez (black English)”, referencing his party’s role in the freedom struggle.
“Congress is the party that gave freedom to the country. It is the party of Maulana Azad and Mahatma Gandhi. They got freedom from the British. Now we will give the people of Indore the freedom from ”kaale angrez”. We free the country from these ”chors and chowkidars”,” he claimed.
