Ahmedabad: In a surprising incident, a Congress MP Vijay Derda allegedly described Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi as `Gujrat ka sher` (Lion of Gujarat). While, addressing a gathering, Derda, who is MP and Chairman & Editor-in-Chief of Maharashtra based news media group, has praised Modi.
According to reports, the function was organised by Digambar Jain monk Tarun Sagar Maharaj in which Narendra Modi has awarded Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev. But even more interesting was Narendra Modi’s reaction to Darda’s remark.
“I came little late, it could be nice if I could hear Vijayji’s entire speech, but I could listen to the last portion.” “You would think that Vijayji is from Congress, and he is in media too, and today he has titled Modi as lion(in his speech), so Modi would sleep very well tonight, but it is not so.”
“In fact, I will be sleepless tonight completely, thinking that perhaps tomorrow morning there will be a breaking news that ‘Congress high command sends notice to Vijay Darda Congress high command has taken a decision that MP like Vijay Darda has praised Modi during the election year in Gujarat, there can is indiscipline of highest level and therefore he should be removed from the party.”
“Then I thought that, Vijay Darda is in media therefore he will not be expelled. I don’t know under the veil of democracy how undemocratic actions are taken.”
