- PM Modi described 'TOP' as tomato, onion and potato at Bengaluru rally
- "Is this what happens when you're on POT?" tweeted Divya Spandana
- Congress had suspended Mani Shankar Aiyar for his "neech" jibe at PM
Ms Divya Spandana's swipe came following PM Modi's comment in a rally in Karnataka during which he said farmers are his top priority and described 'TOP' as tomato, onion and potato.
She tweeted, "Is this what happens when you're on POT?"
The BJP hit back at Ms Divya Spandana for her choice of words with party spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao tweeting, "Most people of the country and our party members won't even know what you are referring to (including PM himself) but your Leader will connect with it instantly. While you have insulted people of India with your atrocious comment, your leader will be proud of you!!"
"Will Rahul Gandhi maintain silence on Divya Spandana's comment while he sacked Mani Shankar Aiyar just because his jibe came close to Gujarat election and Karnataka is still some months away? Or sacrificing his close aide, responsible for his rise as a leader, takes some courage?" he asked in a tweet.
The Congress had suspended Mr Aiyar from the party for his "neech" (lowly) jibe at PM Modi during the Gujarat Assembly polls.
