From dogs and earthquakes to raincoats and bathrooms, Indian democracy has seen it all. More often than not, our politicians go all out in their criticism of their political colleagues. Take Narendra Modi’s comment earlier this week about Manmohan Singh bathing with his raincoat on. The Prime Minister was questioning how his predecessor had come out clean from all the corruption charges when other Congress members had not.
But he is not the first one to overstep the line – the line of offending your colleagues.
Our politicians do have a knack of throwing snide remarks and taking snarky digs at their opponents. Here is more proof:
Mallikarjun Kharge to Narendra Modi
Sanjay Nirupam to Smriti Irani
Narendra Modi to Sunanda Pushkar
Digvijaya Singh to Arvind Kejriwal
Daya Shankar Singh to Mayawati
Raj Thackeray to Jaya Bhaduri Bachchan
Anisur Rahman to Mamata Banerjee
Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti to the Opposition
