Jaipur: Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria has been in dispute for using abusive words former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at a meeting on Sunday. Kataria praised Narendra Modi for being a strong prime minister while comparing him with Manmohan singh.
Kataria said Singh during his visits to the US was received by inconspicuous ministers and now President Obama himself comes to the airport to receive Prime Minister Modi.
"When PM Manomohan Singh visited the US (saala) he was received by some Tome, Dick and Harry minister used to receive him at the airport. Now when India's PM goes to the US, Obama personally receives him", he said.
Coming under severe criticism from the Congress, the minister denied abusing Singh. “I have not stated anything maliciously against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in my speech. If it has hurt somebody, I apologise,” he tweeted hours later.
Former chief minister Ashok Gehlot also condemned Kataria's derogatory remarks and tweeted, "He should be sacked from his post. BJP leaders are shamelessely saying whatever they want. They have literally crossed all the limits."
