Engrossed in the undergoing political season, BJP candidate Kirron Kher's star campaigner Anupam Kher in an interaction with Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami on Republic Bharat's 'Poochta hai Bharat' elaborated on the Opposition.
Speaking over the repeated 'Chowkidar Chor Hai' jibe of Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee's recent claim of wanting to slap the Prime Minister, Kher stated that the Opposition is in fear to lose their 'power and money' that they recieved as a 'legacy'
He said, "Because in 2014 they used to feel that Modiji came to power by mistake, they had a habit of ruling for 60 years but now they can see that they've lost, the youth and scholars have come together, they can see their power, money and luxury coming to an end, it is their habit, how can they leave that."
"Although some people have come up from the grassroot, but some people have got the legacy, only in language they are in grassroot, but they have made their palaces worth crores of rupees and here there is a person who is not interested in money, he is only interested in the country. Now that people are listening to him, they feel like their future is coming to an end. So, its only human to squirm in such situations," he added.
Gandhi has been raising the "Chowkidar Chor Hai" (Watchman is a thief) slogan to target the PM whom he accuses of being cosy with select businessmen.
He also alleged that the PM has given Rs 30,000 crore to businessman Anil Ambani through the "Rafale scam". "Modi has committed a theft of several lakh crores of your money," he said.
Whereas, the Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee has now said that she feels like giving the Prime Minister a 'tight slap' in retaliation to his 'Trinamool Tolabaazi Tax' attack.
She said, "Money is nothing for me. That's why when Narendra Modi comes to Bengal and says TMC is a party of Tolaabazi (organised extortion) I feel like giving him a tight slap.
