Patna, May 8, 2019:
Rashtriya Janta Dal (RLD) leader Rabri Devi on Wednesday said that Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra committed a mistake by comparing Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Mahabharata antagonist Duryodhan and said that he should have been called a ‘jallad (executioner)’.

While talking to the media, Rabri claimed that the title of jallad is apt for the Indian Prime Minister as he “kidnaps and kills judges and journalists.”
Rabri’s comments come in wake of the Congress General Secretary’s attacks on Narendra Modi, who had earlier said that her father Rajiv Gandhi died as “corrupt number one.”
While addressing a Congress rally in Haryana, Priyanka had said: “This country has never forgiven arrogance and pride and history is witness to this. The Mahabharat is witness to this, in which Duryodhan also had such arrogance. When Lord Krishna tried to make him see the truth, he tried to capture him instead.”
Priyanka further said that it would become clear on May 23 (the day of election results) who is Duryodhan and who is Arjun.
