Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the photo replacing controversy, the Congress today said that his ‘self love obsession bordering on narcissism’ has become his trademark.
"A self projection obsession and self love obsession bordering on narcissism has unfortunately become the hallmark of the Prime Minister Modi. Many events in the last two and a half years show the extent to which obsessive self love and self promotion can go," Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi told press in New Delhi.
"There is no year in which Gandhi ji has been replaced by any Prime Minister or even President but Modiji's obsessive self love, self promotion and narcissism must been that on one hand he becomes the self appointed and self proclaimed Patel and he now replaces Gandhi," he added.
He also that such pattern could turn out to be fatal for the world's largest democracy.
Taking another jibe at the PM, he said, "Thank God he (PM Modi) hasn't done it to Chandrayaan of India yet, thank god the Aadhaar card is not yet carrying his photo but the way things are going we are worried that day will also come. Gandhi ji is too gigantic to be replaced by anyone."
Mahatma Gandhi's picture weaving Khadi on a simple charkha being replaced by PM Modi's picture in the same classic pose has created an outrage of sorts.
