On Friday as Prime Minister Narendra Modi reeled out names of Congress leaders who had hurled abuses at him in the past, the main rival party appeared to be on the defensive.
Right from the time when Sonia Gandhi used the phrase 'maut ke saudagar' to the 'khoon ki dalali' remark by Rahul Gandhi, Modi read out names of almost all senior Congress leaders who had hurled abuses at him.
Never in the past were such remarks made against a single individual who rose from a 'chaiwala' to the exalted post of Prime Minister of India. With Modi adopting an aggressive stance on the eve of Gujarat polling, the Congress leadership has asked its leaders not to react to Modi's speeches. Congress leaders may well question why the BJP did not take action against its own leaders who had hurled abuses at Sonia and Rahul Gandhi in the past. All in all, people expect their leaders to exercise restraint while making remarks about their rivals.
