Leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party are known for their deep admiration towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi. So, it's no surprise that Union Minister for Urban Development and Parliamentary Affairs, Venkaiah Naidu praised the PM as 'god’s gift for India' and the 'messiah of the poor'.
Addressing a two-day national executive meet of the BJP, Naidu said, "India is recognised and respected as the most favoured destination for investment. Modi is god’s gift for India. He is the messiah of the poor. He inherited challenges in each and every sector. He is steering clear of them."
However, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that the 'god’s gift for India' praise was not a part of the political resolution and he "didn't hear him saying it". A statement from Naidu's office had attributed the remark to him, as well as his calling the Prime Minister a 'messiah of the poor'.
But the Twitterati was in no mood to accept any explanations. And these were the reactions:
