Tearing into Rahul Gandhi's comments that he was a 'bhagidar' (collaborator) and not a 'chowkidar' (watchman), Modi said he was, in fact, a partner in the aspirations of the people.

He said he was neither a 'saudagar' (trader), nor a 'thekedar' (contractor) like the Congress.

The Prime Minister said the Congress party had misused no-confidence motions to spread instability in the country to ensure that the Gandhi family remains in power.

Dubbing surgical strikes as 'jumla' strike is an insult to security forces, he questioned Gandhi's intent in targeting the armed forces.

Mocking the Congress president, he said it is a fact that he cannot see eye-to-eye with Gandhi, saying those who dared to do it, including stalwarts like former President Pranab Mukherjee, Vallabh Bhai Patel, former PM Morarji Desai and NCP chief Sharad Pawar, had to suffer.

"You are 'naamdaar' (dynast), I am 'kaamdar' (worker). I cannot dare to see eye-to-eye with you," he told Gandhi on his remark that he cannot look in the Congress leader's eyes.

"The entire nation saw what the eyes did today. It is clear in front of everyone," he said indicating Gandhi's apparent post-hug wink.

"Had it not been your arrogance, and had you understood the problems of the states, GST would have been implemented five years ago," the Prime Minister said.
