Ahmedabad: A day after Congress President Sonia Gandhi blasted Chief Minister Narendra Modi for being 'pro-rich', senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj on Saturday equated the UPA leaders with politicians in Aamir Khan-starrer 'Peepli Live'.
Firing slavo at the Centre, the former Delhi Chief Minister said: "Everything appears yellow to jaundiced eye. They will never give credit of development to Modi. They are thugs. They only lust for money. How can you forget the multi-crore CWG, 2G and coal scams."
Lambasting the UPA over FDI, the BJP leader said: "It might have cleared the final hurdle for implementation of FDI in multi-brand retail in the Rajya Sabha, it is a huge moral defeat of the government, and people will dent a massive blow to the party in Gujarat and 2014 Lok Sabha elections."
