Modi, during an election rally in Pratpagarh, Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, called the former prime minister “bhrashtachari no. 1” (corrupt no. 1).
“Your father was termed ‘Mr. Clean’ by his courtiers, but his life ended as ‘bhrashtachari no. 1’,” the prime minister said.
Modi’s comments are a reference to the Bofors scandal that broke during Rajiv Gandhi’s tenure.
The prime minister’s response is an apparent riposte to Rahul Gandhi’s corruption allegations against the current regime in the Rafale jet deal.
In response to the PM’s scathing remark, Rahul Gandhi tweeted: “Modi Ji, The battle is over. Your Karma awaits you. Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father won’t protect you. All my love and a huge hug. Rahul”.
Sam Pitroda, Indian Overseas Congress chief was severe in his criticism of Modi, saying a prime minister “can’t speak nonsense”.
“We were hurt by what PM said about Rajiv Gandhi yesterday. Normally PM of a country speaks for the people, it's a huge accountability. PM can't speak nonsense”, Pitroda said.
Modi will be campaigning in Madhya Pradesh today.
The fifth phase of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections will be held on 6 May.
