The Buxar MP, while addressing a programme in Sasaram, said he was deeply hurt by Mr. Gandhi’s accusations against the PM in the Rafale deal.

The Minister that “India needs a progressive Prime Minister and the whole country will unite to make Narendra Modi Prime Minister again”.

Hitting out at the Opposition’s mahagathbandhan (grand alliance), he said it was in fact a mahathugbandhan (alliance of the corrupt).

This is not the first time he has made such controversial remarks. In 2015, Mr. Choubey had called Mr. Gandhi a “foreign parrot” who speaks against the BJP and reads scripts written by others.
