Congress leader Bhupesh Baghel on Monday stoked controversy by saying that Prime Minister Narendra Modi can't become Jawaharlal Nehru even if he takes birth 10 times. The former Chhattisgarh chief minister said, “He is trying to make a place by defaming Nehru, but he is not even the dust of Nehru's feet.'

Slamming the prime minister, the senior Congress leader said, “Nowadays, the PM says anything he wants. He started by calling our manifesto an agenda of the Muslim League, Mangalsutra, mutton, fish, and buffalo... Now he is saying that the Parmatma has sent him, which means he is not a normal human. It shows that he is mentally unstable.”

“Rahul Gandhi is the grandson of a leader who cut Pakistan into two pieces but Modi ji went all the way to Pakistan to eat Biryani... PM Modi is trying to make a place by defaming Nehru but he is not even the dust of Nehru's feet. He can't become Nehru even if he takes birth 10 times...," Baghel added.

Earlier on Friday, criticising the Election Commission, the Congress leader said that in the era of ballot papers, the election panel used to release all voting data within 24 hours. But in the digital era, the commission did not give the voting data even after 8-10 days, and when it did, the percentage of polling increased by 6-8 per cent.

The former chief minister was quoted by the Times of India as saying, "When you are in an electronic era, you are not giving out the number of votes polled. You release the poll percentage after so many days, showing an increase of six to eight per cent". “Whom do you want to shower favours on?” Bhagal asked.
