New Delhi, March 24: The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), an ally of the Congress in Bihar, lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after a top Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shrikant Sharma called Rahul Gandhi an "eunuch". In a stinging jibe, the Lalu Prasad Yadav-led party asked Sharma how he knows that Rahul Gandhi is impotent and Modi is not.

The RJD slammed Sharma, a Minister holding the Energy portfolio in the Yogi Adityanath-led UP government, for the use of "unparliamentary language". It further added that expecting decency from a partyman whose own leader uses "objectionable language" is foolish. BJP MLA Apologises After Calling Mayawati 'Worse Than Eunuch'

Here's What the RJD Said on Twitter:

"How do they know that Rahul Gandhi is impotent and Narendra Modi is not? The nation wants to know. When their chief's language is so objectionable, his track record so controversial and covered in blood, it is foolish to expect parliamentary language and behaviour from his disciples," read the tweet, posted from the official handle of the RJD.

The post of Sharma, tagged in the above tweet, was uploaded two days ago. His controversial tweet in Hindi read as follows: "The comments issued at the behest of coward eunuch Congress chief Rahul Gandhi are shameful. The entire world is standing with BJP government's strict action against terrorists but Congress and party is weakening India's fight against terrorism with their disgusting remarks."

Sharma's remarks came in the backdrop of Congress veteran Sam Pitroda's contentious statements questioning the damage inflicted in the IAF strike in Balakot following the Pulwama terror attack.
