It seems like the polarising stature of Narendra Modi is indeed true. When legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar endorsed the NDA prime ministerial candidate for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls on Friday, thousands criticised her for supporting Modi while many stood by her on social media.
"Narendrabhai is like my brother. All of us want to see him become the Prime Minister. On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, I hope our wishes would come true," the melody queen said, when Modi inaugurated a new hospital complex named after her late father Deenanath Mangeshkar in Pune,
To this, Congress spokesperson Digvijaya Singh reacted saying, "Lata Mangeshkar is our Indian Icon and she is entitled to her Political Views. We all love her songs."
However, her statement instantly evoked strong reactions from followers of both - Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party.
