Reacting to Modi's statement, he also said that the Congress wants to eliminate poverty from the country.

"BJP says Congress marketing poverty... reality is Congress wants to eliminate poverty... BJP the poor metaphorically anything better than marketing hatred," Tewari tweeted.

Addressing a rally in Kanpur on Saturday, Modi took jibes at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his remarks on poverty. Modi had said that one should look at the language Rahul has used.

"He says poverty is nothing. It is only a state of mind. Those born with a golden spoon-what do they know of poverty," Modi had said.
