Hyderabad: Paying rich tributes to Gandhiji on his 150th birth anniversary, former minister, Mr Mohammed Ali Shabbir said teachings, thoughts and views of Gandhiji would remain eternal and continue to inspire several generations.

Mr Shabbir Ali, along with other senior leaders of the Congress party, participated in the Congress Sandesh Yatra from Charminar to Gandhi Bhavan. Speaking on the occasion, he slammed US President Donald Trump for calling Prime Minister Narender Modi 'Father of the Nation'. He gave an interesting comparison between Gandhiji and Modi and said that the latter had no stature even to be compared with Gandhiji. Gandhiji was an institution while Modi was BJP’s poster boy. “He is a model, a poser and an actor. Modi has even done modeling for Jio, PayTM and also Khadi. Gandhiji led the struggle for independence and brought freedom for the country, but Modi suppressed people’s freedom, manipulated elections, openly lied and cheated the entire country with ‘Jumlas’ like ‘Achche Din’ and ‘Vikas’,” he said.

 

He said Mahatma Gandhi was a highly qualified and a reputed lawyer while Modi’s academic qualifications were still a mystery, although he claims to hold a BA and MA degrees. Gandhiji used to wear a dhoti, eat ordinary food and believed in simple living. But Modi wears suits and jackets worth lakhs of rupees and even changes them thrice a day on some occasions. “He eats costliest mushrooms. Mahatma Gandhi toured entire India and villages to meet people while Modi is a frequent flyer and has toured almost all countries and avoided visiting villages in the last six years,” he said.
