India will be safe in Modi rather than Rahul Gandhi's hands: Sadhu Yadav

New Delhi, Aug. 17 (ANI): India would be safer in the hands of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi rather than with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, said RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's brother-in-law Sadhu Yadav on Saturday.

Yadav, who met Modi in Gandhinagar yesterday, said the nation comes first for him.

"For me, the country is big and I think about the country. And the country is looking forward to Narendra Modi. Whatever Narendra Modi says, he says about the country. So, I am seeing that the country will be safe in his hands," Yadav told Asian News International (ANI) here.

"Had Rahul Gandhi been effective, he would have talked about the country at large. He does not talk about the country. Narendra Modi is talking and thinking about the country. So, we are talking about Narendra Modi," he added.

Yadav, who is likely to be expelled from his party following his latest remarks, said the Congress Party is not thinking about the country.

"The Congress is not talking about national security. The Congress Party is not thinking about the country. So, Narendra Modi is better and he is thinking about the country," he added.

Yadav, who is the Congress leader from Bihar, yesterday lauded the Gujarat Chief Minister after meeting, and said the people of the country want to see the BJP's poll panel chief as the Prime Minister.

"It doesn't matter whether the Congress wants or not, the people of the country want him," he had said.

Yadav ruled out that there was any hidden agenda behind his meeting the Gujarat Chief Minister.

"Is Narendra Modi an untouchable? Is he not an Indian citizen? There was no agenda in it. I met him because I was in the city," he said.

Yadav, a former Rajya Sabha MP, had quit the RJD after being denied an election ticket in 2009 and then joined the Congress. (ANI)
