BENGALURU: Condemning Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement on former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi that his life ended as 'Bhrastachari Number One,' Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy Sunday said the comment reflected his state of mind.

Karnataka Congress president Dinesh Gundu Rao too flayed the prime minister's statement.

At a rally in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, Modi had targeted the former prime minister while attacking Rahul. "Your father was termed Mr Clean by his courtiers, but his life ended as bhrashtachari no 1," Modi had said.


Modi had claimed that Rahul had admitted in an interview that his only aim is to tarnish his image. "By hurling abuses, you cannot turn the 50 long years of Modi's tapasya (struggle) into dust," the prime minister had said.

Rahul Gandhi too had reacted sharply to Modi's statement, saying "Modi Ji, The battle is over. Your Karma awaits you. Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father wont protect you. All my love and a huge hug."
