Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday once again attacked INDIA bloc over reservations issue, and accused them of performing "mujra" for vote bank.

Modi made the remarks while addressing Lok Sabha election rallies in Bihar's Karakat and Patliputra constituencies. 

"Bihar is the land which has given a new direction to the fight for social justice. I will foil the plans of the INDIA bloc to rob SCs, STs and OBCs of their rights and divert these to Muslims," said Modi.

Further attacking Opposition, Modi said that they may remain enslaved and perform 'mujra' to please their vote bank.

However, reacting to Prime Minister's remark, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi said that no Prime Minister has ever used such words.

“While giving a speech in Bihar, Prime Minister Modi used abusive language. No PM has used such words in the country’s history. We respect the post of PM. Shouldn't PM maintain dignity of the post? He insulted the opposition leaders,” Gandhi said.

Worried about PM, says Manoj Jha

RJD leader Manoj Jha also reacted to Modi's remark and said he is worried about Modi.

"I am not worried about what he (PM Modi) is saying, I am worried about him now. Till yesterday, we disagreed with him, now we are worried about him. I had said recently that he is becoming a victim of delusion of grandeur. 'Machli', mutton, mangalsutra and 'mujra'... is this the language of a PM?"

No one taking PM seriously: Sanjay Singh

AAP MP Sanjay Singh slammed PM Modi over his remarks and said that he doesn't have control over his speech.

“I have said this time and again that PM Modi’s language doesn’t seem to be that of a man sitting at such a high Constitutional post. He has no control over his speech. It is unfortunate what he said today; no one is taking him seriously in the country and he is disappointed by this fact,” said AAP MP Sanjay Singh.
