My India is my family: PM Modi counters Lalu Yadav's 'You don't have a family' remark

New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday claimed 140 crore countrymen are his family in a counter to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Yadav's attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader for having no children.

Slamming Lalu, Modi, who was addressing a rally in Adilabad, Telangana, said, "Deeply immersed in corruption, nepotism and appeasement, the leaders of the INDI alliance are getting nervous.

"As I question their dynastic politics, these people have now started saying that Modi has no family. I want to tell them that 140 crore countrymen are my family, those who have no one also belong to Modi and Modi belongs to them. My India is my family."

The Prime Minister countered after Lalu said in a rally, "This Narendra Modi is now attacking dynastic politics. He should explain why he doesn't have a child? He accuses people, who have more children, of promoting dynastic politics. You (Modi) do not have a family."

"He is not a Hindu as well. A Hindu always shaves his hair and beard when someone dies in his family. Why didn't he do that when he lost his mother? Let him say. He is spreading hatred in the country," the former Bihar Chief Minister added.

In Bihar, Lalu's RJD and its ally Congress were dumped by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who rejoined BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

Prime Minister Modi has been campaigning hard across the country for the upcoming parliamentary elections, which will be announced by the Election Commission soon.

Modi will fight the polls from Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi.
