New Delhi, February 12: Bharatiya Janata Party leader and former Union Minister Uma Bharti slammed the critics for misreading the tweets about Prime Minister Narendra Modi following the poll debacle in Delhi Assembly Elections 2020. She issued long clarification stating that state poll debacles were not a verdict on the PM and added that Mahatma Gandhi had wanted a Congress-free India.

Slamming the critics on Wednesday, Bharti took to Twitter and wrote, "Some who reported on my tweet seem not to have read it properly. From 2014 to now, it has become clear in front of the whole world that there is no equal to Shri Modiji in India. We may lose some state polls, but in the Lok Sabha elections, there is a one-sided wave in favour of Modiji, which will continue for the next 10-20 years."

Adding more, she added, "The Delhi poll results don’t mean PM Modi’s popularity has gone down. The Congress had all votes polled for AAP. This decision was taken on the night of the 7th. Congress has decided that from now on, it will only celebrate other people’s wins. It will no longer be the groom, but the groom’s companion. Gandhiji’s wish of a Congress-mukt Bharat will be fulfilled soon."

Earlier on Tuesday, the former Union Minister had praised Narendra Modi and comapared him with Chhatrapati Shivaji. She had written, "Results of various Assembly polls in the past 1.5 years, then the Lok sabha polls, and the subsequent state elections prove there is no leader like PM Modi in the BJP or in India. The whole country seems to have embarced PM Modi, just like he has embraced the people of India. Chhatrapati Modi zindabaad!" BJP Chief JP Nadda Congratulates Arvind Kejriwal, Concedes Defeat, Says 'Will Play Our Role as Constructive Opposition'.

Following this, the tweets were taken by critics as a taunt to Narendra Modi, as BJP lost a humiliating defeat in the Delhi Assembly Elections 2020. The Aam Aadmi Party swept the polls by winning 62 seats and BJP managed to win just eight seats. Meanwhile, Congress failed to open its account.
