Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday alleged that the Congress party was trying to stop him from raising 'Bharat mata ki jai slogan in election rallies.
Addressing a rally here, Modi said that the Congress party's "naamdar" (an allusion to Congress President Rahul Gandhi) had issued a "fatwa" against him to stop him from saying 'Bharat mata ki jai'.
Modi raised the slogans multiple times before he began his speech.
Rajasthan is due to vote for a new Assembly on December 7.
He said Modi did not talk about issues of farmers, women and youth -- who comprise 'Bharat mata' - and only raised slogans.
