Swamy condemned the "elitist and deplorable" remark of the UPA ally and Agarwal that BJP's prime ministerial nominee is unfit to be the country's leader as he belongs to a family which managed a mere tea-stall.

He said such an arrogant attitude of the Congress party reminds the nation on Friday of the feudal past of India and surprisingly the remark has not been condemned yet by the party, which all the time talks of "inclusive development".

Agarwal had recently said that Modi wants to become Prime Minister, but someone rising from a tea shop can never have a national perspective.
