Prime Minister Narendra Modi has landed himself in yet another controversy after an old video of his statement describing traders braver than even army jawans went viral on social media.
In the short video clip Modi is seen saying, “A trader is braver than even the army jawans.”
The comments by Modi for armed forces have once again evoked scathing criticism on social media platforms.
User Ganesh Thanush on YouTube said, “Our soldiers are dying at the borders, and this man disrespects the army.”
User Sidhu said, “tabhi to modi ambani aur adani ki chatta hai.orop ke naam se maun vrath rakh leta hai.”
On twitter too, the reactions have been scathing.
Here are some examples.
Sure hoarders who sell goods for double price are Heroes and are more patriotic than Jawans for Modi and company https://t.co/NvOZrMGngy
