Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday slammed Rahul Gandhi over latter's 'people lying drunk on roads' remark in Varanasi and asked 'what kind of language is this?'

The Congress scion didn't like the new Kashi and Ayodhya and he hates Lord Ram, said the Prime Minister adding that the former's comments shows his frustration.

Further hitting out at Rahul Gandhi, PM Modi said, "Congress' Yuvraj says that youth of Kashi and UP are 'nashedi' (drug addict). What kind of language is this? Now they are taking out their frustration on the youth of Uttar Pradesh. The youth of UP are busy in building a developed state."

"...They have spent two decades abusing Modi, and now they (Congress) are venting out their frustration on the youth of UP. Those who are not in their sense are calling youth of UP and my Kashi drunkards," the Prime Minister said.

"Those not in 'hosh' (senses) themselves call youth 'naseri' (intoxicated)," PM Modi said in apparent attack on Congress' Rahul Gandhi.

Taking a jibe at Opposition's I.N.D.I.A bloc, PM Modi said that Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav have come together once again but will not get the desired result... they will struggle to save forfeiture of security deposits in the upcoming elections. 

"Nowadays, there is another reason for their (Congress, Opposition) anger and their frustration. They are not liking the new form of Kashi and Ayodhya at all. He (Rahul Gandhi) talks about Ram Temple in his speeches. I didn't know that Congress has so much hatred for Lord Ram," PM Modi said.

"Six decades of nepotism, corruption and appeasement kept Uttar Pradesh behind in development. The previous governments made UP a sick state and snatched away future from the youth," he added.
