Prime Minister Narendra Modi likes 'peeping into bathrooms', Google searching

Narendra Modi calls Congress-SP alliance 'union of clans' as UP gets ready to vote tomorrow

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday responded to the Prime Minister's "raincoat in bathroom" jibe directed at Dr Manmohan Singh and said that Narendra Modi likes "peeping into others people's bathrooms". "He can peep into other people's bathrooms in his free time".

The BJP is facing a tough electoral battle against an alliance of the Indian National Congress and the Samajwadi Party, and also against the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) led by the popular Ms Mayawati, a champion of the lower-caste Dalits.

These are among millions of voters in northern Uttar Pradesh state who will deliver a crucial mid-term verdict on Modi and decide whether he can wrest India's biggest political prize from the ruling Samajwadi party.

Addressing a rally here in the poll-bound state, Gandhi said Modi has a penchant for grabbing headlines and indulged in "laughter shows" inside and outside Parliament. "But in Haryana and Madhya Pradesh, where we have BJP governments, 7 to 11% of the wheat is procured by the government at the minimum price", he said, adding that a BJPgovernment in UP will also waive off farmers' debts.

"The country's biggest problem is lack of jobs".

This time around the BJP faces a major challenge from the youthful and charismatic current Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, running in an alliance with Congress.

"But the result is we have suffered most number of casualties in the last seven years".

Many like Pinky Bharti, a beautician in Ghaziabad, admire the bold move and see him as a messiah who will root out corruption. "SP and BSP are not options for people". If reports are to be believed the AAP is giving the BJP-SAD combine a tough fight in Punjab and regional parties in Uttar Pradesh are also going toe-to-toe with the BJP.

#SP MLA here had levelled serious allegations against SP MP & if asked about it, Mulayamji would've said that 'boys make mistakes.

In UP, Mr Modi ridiculed the Congress-SP alliance saying that the Congress had attacked the Akhilesh government over the law and order situation but was now holding hands with the same party.
