Gandhinagar: Newly-inducted Congress leader Alpesh Thakor on Tuesday said that imported mushrooms have helped Narendra Modi get a “fair” complexion.
Addressing a rally in Gujarat on the last day of the election campaign for the second phase, OBC leader Thakor said, “Modi ji eats mushrooms from Taiwan and one mushroom costs Rs 80,000 and he eats five mushrooms everyday”. “He was dark like me but he became fair because of imported mushrooms,” said Thakor, who is contesting from Radhanpur constituency in Patan district of Gujarat.
Alpesh said that someone told him that “Modi saab jo khate hain woh aap nahi khaa sakte… kyunki woh gaaribon ka khaana nahi hai… woh to mushroom khaate hain.. tum log joh khaate ho woh unko aacha nahi lagta, woh joh khaate hain woh toh Taiwan se aata hai… uske ek mushroom ki keemat Rs 80,000 hai “. Thakor claimed that Modi has been eating these mushrooms since he was the chief minister of Gujarat.
“Woh mere jitne kale the, itne gore kaise ho gaye… lal tamatar jaise, jo PM har roz 4 lakh ke mushroom kha jaate hai, unko yeh roti-chawal accha nahi lagega, woh toh sab dikhawa hai (He was dark like me but has now become fair… A Prime Minister who eats mushrooms worth Rs 4 lakh everyday will never like dal-chawal. This is a farce),” the 40-year-old OBC leader said.
Alpesh Thakor then said, “Socho uske (Prime Minister) karyakarta kitne karodon rupaiye khaa jaate honge.”
