23 Feb : Hitting back at Gujarat CM Narendra Modi using his remarks about Rahul Gandhi being a "small aquarium fish", Congress has said the saffron leader believed only in "matsya nyay" which means the law of the jungle.
"Modi is talking about fish and believes in the Matsya Nyay. This means jungle raj or the law of the jungle where the protector becomes the predator," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters at New Delhi on Monday.
Singhvi alleged Modi had "become highly frustrated and insecure after Rahul Gandhi’s sustained and successful campaign in Gujarat and elsewhere in the country and such statements (of Modi) reflect it."
Modi, in a veiled reference to Gandhi on Sunday, had likened him to a "small aquarium fish" unlike leaders in the saffron party who are like "ocean fish" who can weather big storm.
