Stepping up his attack on the UP mahagathbandhan. PM Modi slammed the opposition for playing caste politics. PM Modi said that he comes from a poor family and his only caste is poverty. Not stopping there, PM Modi said that by demanding a certificate of his caste, the opposition leaders are asking for a certificate from the poor. This is just days after Mayawati launched a blistering attack at the PM and said that Modi was not backward by birth - adding that had Narendra Modi been from a backward caste, then the RSS would've never allowed him to become the PM.
