  • Narendra Modi uses Batra's name in his campaign speech

Narendra Modi, in yet another over zealous speech, has managed to irk sentiments once again. This time his target is an innocent mother. Modi in his recent speech invoked the Indian martyr Vikram Batra, the man who lost his life while trying to acquire point 4875. 

Speaking of the Congress incumbency in governance, Modi said "Vikram Batra died for the country - he had said - yeh dil maange more. I say it too. I want all four seats in Himachal. I want 300 lotuses across India." 

This misplaced use of references in his speech may have not gone down too well with people. As the news surfaced, Indians reacted to  the comments made by the Saffron party leader.

Wasn't Vikram Batra 's mother also using the name of his son martyr (for votes & emotional appeal)? Why else did AAP gave her ticket?
