Chor, Gabbar, Maskhara…expletives flying fast and furious in Assembly polls

Campaigning in four states witnessing use of pedestrian language for and by top leaders of both the parties

Bhopal: The BJP and the Congress are the two biggest political parties in the country and would, most probably, be leading their respective coalitions in the upcoming General Elections.

However, the kind of language being used by and for the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Congress president Rahul Gandhi – the top leaders of the the two parties – in campaigning for the Assembly polls in five states is bound to leave a bad taste in the mouth.

Gabbar Singh

Rahul has conferred the title of Gabbar Singh and Chor (thief) on Modi in public meetings in Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh.Ghulam Nabi Azad had described him as Gangu Teli (poor man) and Manishankar Aiyar as Neech (despicable).

Rahul was described as Pagal (mad) by BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj, as Chhota Bhim (a cartoon character) by Smriti Irani, as Maskhara (joker) by Arun Jaitley, as Manorogi (mentally ill) by Ashwini Chaube, as Ravana by Kailash Vijayvargiya and as Mandbuddhi Balak (moron) by Tarun Chugh during the run-up to the upcoming Assembly polls and the earlier Karnataka Assembly polls.

Priyanka is ‘Piyakkad’

The leaders down the line are also facing profanity. Priyanka Gandhi has been described by BJP Subramaniam Swamy as Piyakkad (drunkard). Ashwini Chaube has conferred the titles of Gudia, Zahar Ki Pudia and Pootna on Sonia Gandhi.
