Kill PM to save constitution: Congress Madhya Pradesh leader, BJP slamstext_fields
Former Madhya Pradesh minister Raja Pateria found himself in the soup after a video of him went viral in which he allegedly called for killing PM Modi to save the Constitution.
The Congress leader later told India Today that his remarks were presented out of context, and added that "by killing the PM", he meant to defeat Narendra Modi in the polls.
In the video he was seen addressing his supporters around him.
The leader reportedly said the statement came about in the flow and the person who recorded it used it out of context.
As the controversy emerged, the BJP said the Congress party belongs to Mussolini and not Mahatma Gandhi.
The BJP leader from Madhya Pradesh, Narottam Mishra said he heard Pateria's statement, which clearly implied 'the Congress party does not belong to Mahatma Gandhi".
Narottam Mishra added that he was issuing an instruction to the SP to register an FIR against the Congress leader.
