After BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra compared the Opposition with Pakistani terrorist Hafiz Saeed, Union minister Giriraj Kishore on Monday targeted Opposition parties and said "Osama supporters" and Maoists are coming together to defeat the Modi government.

His comments came a day after Patra said it was not just the yet-to-be-formed Opposition alliance, but Saeed as well wants to stop Modi from winning the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

"Good morning. Maoists, casteists, feudalists and Osama (Bin Laden) supporters are all standing against the nationalist coalition (NDA). But as the river of development flows, NDA’s boat is speeding ahead to victory in 2019," Singh said in an early morning tweet in Hindi.

His comments came in for criticism from the Opposition parties with former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit saying one must not cross the line of civility in politics.

"We must remember that while we are all political adversaries, we are not enemies in real life. We cannot be. One must never indulge in personal attacks," she said.

Earlier, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had described the coming together of the Samajwadi Party and the BSP in the Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha bypolls as the "coming together of a mongoose and a snake when a storm brews".
