Headlinejeevi: PM Narendra Modi Gets A New Name
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has got a new name.
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh called Modi ‘headlinejeevi’ following the latter’s announcement that the three controversial farm laws will be repealed.
“Alas, if only there was a way of repealing the Nov 8, 2016, decision by Headlinejeevi. This was really a demon-ic move, for which the country is still paying,” Ramesh tweeted.
Ramesh was referring to the PM’s demonetisation move five years ago, while by calling him Headlinejeevi, he was alluding to the ‘andolanjeevi’ comment Modi had made in Parliament earlier this year.
The video of Modi saying, “A new class of people has emerged in recent times who can be seen in all agitations and protests. These are andolan jeevis,” was shared by numerous users on social media today.
“First, bulldoze laws in Parliament. Then face unprecedented protests. Thereafter, confront election realities in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab, particularly. Finally, after much appeal, repeal. Kisan-ity prevails at last! I salute the tenacity of our kisans who did not give up,” Ramesh said.
