After Prime Minister calling the Congress party and its president ‘Namdaar’, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav’s aide Abu Azmi has called Congress ‘bade logo ki party’ (party of great/famous people).
Abu Azmi was reacting to Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s declaration that he will become the Prime Minister. Azmi said that Congress leaders are very arrogant, adding, “We want to change the government in centre but the decision on the PM candidate will be taken by a united opposition. Rahul Gandhi can’t decide alone.”
Azmi also said the Congress leaders should come and meet Akhilesh Yadav.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched an all-out attack against on the Congress Party President, Rahul Gandhi, over his "I will be PM" remark.
Calling his declaration “arrogance”, he said, “Yesterday someone made an important declaration, 'I am going to be Prime Minister!' He came like those bullies, barging his way ahead when there are others who have so many years of experience. How can someone just declare himself as the Prime Minister? This is simply nothing but arrogance".

The Congress President when asked if he can be the PM for 2019, he said "Yes why not", he further said that it can happen if Congress emerges as the single largest party in 2019.
