Mocking Rahul Gandhi over his gaffe calling Rajasthan jat leader Kumbharam as Kumbhakaran, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the Congress president does not even know the names of his own party leaders.

During a speech on Tuesday, Mr Gandhi had mispronounced Kumbharam as Kumbhakaran while mentioning a Lift Canal project in Rajasthan’s Jhunjhunu district named after Chaudhary Kumbharam Arya.

“Congress President does not even know the names of his own party leaders. He did not even know the name of a very popular farmer and jat leader in Congress, late Kumbharam ji. He called him ‘Kumbhakaran’. You can imagine what such people will do when in power,” PM Modi said during a rally in Rajasthan’s Sumerpur.
