​”How can you compare a king to an oil-seller? How can you compare Modi with Rahul Gandhi? Even when we buy a dog, we check its breed and lineage first. Similarly, when we buy a bull for ploughing fields, we first check whether it is fit to work. We never buy a bull whose hooves are not right. How can we have a leader whose hereditary background is unknown?”

About Modi “I am sorry to say that this man Modi is saying anything that he wants.”

About BJP unit and leaders “thieves, biggest black-marketeers and hoarders”.

-​Lal Singh, ​BJP MLA, Basholi J&K, about Modi​ and BJP before joining BJP​
