Fingers, hands raised on PM will be chopped off: BJP Bihar chief
Patna : Bihar BJP president and Lok Sabha MP from Ujiyarpur Nityanand Rai on Monday said that PM Modi is serving the nation with the best and if any “finger or hand was raised” against him, it would be broken or chopped off. He was speaking at a function.
Speaking about PM Modi's past and post Mr Rai said, “Jinki ma khana parasti thi, Narendra Modiji ko khana khilane baithti thi, us thaali me ma ko na beta aur bete ko na ma dikhai deti thi. Aaj us paristhiti se uthkar wo desh ke PM bane hain — garib ka beta, uska swabhiman hona chahiye, ek ek vyakti ko iski izzat honi chahiye... (When Narendra Modi’s mother would serve food to him, neither she would see her son in that plate nor the son would see the mother. From such circumstances, he has grown to be PM — the son of a poor, each individual should be honoured by this.)”
Rai added: “..Unki or uthne waali ungali ko, uthne waale haath ko...hum sub milke...ya to tod dein, zaroorat pari to kaat dein. (Any finger or hand raised against the PM, we should get together to either broken or, if need be, chop it off.”
BJP member and Deputy CM Sushil Modi was also sharing the stage with him.
Indian Express contacted Mr Rai to learn more about intentions behind the words, he claimed, "I used the expression of breaking fingers and chopping hands as proverbs to convey that we would strongly deal with those who rise against the country’s pride and security. I meant country after I had finished talking about the PM’s inspiring journey”.
