'Feel sorry for the Prime Minister': Sule
NCP MP Supriya Sule, taking jibe at the PM's visit, said she 'feels sorry for the Prime Minister', Loksatta reported.
"As Prime Minister Narendra Modi is coming to Maharashtra, we welcome him. People have seen Big leaders like Atal Bihari Vajpayee, LK Advani, Arun Jaitley, Yashwant Sinha, Sushma Swaraj in this BJP. But today, BJP does not have leaders like them. Sad to see this. I feel concerned about poor Prime Minister that he has to campaign for any small elections in the country, even Sarpanch elections. He works hard for the party. Also, in every election BJP has no other leader or alternative except Narendra Modi," the Baramati MP said in an apparent swipe at the Prime Minister.
