Saharanpur: Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan once again took jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his past occupation of a tea vendor and his recent drum playing episodes in Japan and Tanzania. The SP leader stated that he shares many qualities with the PM and is a fit candidate to for prime ministerial post.
“I have all the qualities of becoming Prime Minister. I can make tea, play the drum, cook food and I wear proper clothes. Besides, I am not all that bad looking or am I corrupt,” he said at an e-rickshaw distribution function in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh.
All promises by PM were lies, says Khan:
- The leader also targeted Modi for his promise of depositing Rs 15 lakh each in the account of every Indian. The minister said, “If I become the Prime Minister, I assure you, I will deposit Rs 20 lakh in accounts of 130 crore people within six months. I am not like those who don’t keep their promises.”
- He said that if Modi would have kept his promise people did not have to take e-rickshaws to earn livelihood. “Everyone would have been Crorepati (Millionaire),” he stated.
- Addressing the gathering at the event he stated that a rikshaw puller always faces difficulty in getting his daughter married. “The probable groom’s family rejects the proposal because of his social status and work,” he said.
- The minister also attacked the PM saying that he was not willing to work for the betterment of poor and was helping those who have ample of it.
