Hyderabad, April 19 (IANS) A senior Congress leader in Telangana on Friday alleged that Prime Minister Narender Modi is suffering from paranoid personality disorder.
“PM Modi has always displayed unhealthy pattern of thinking, functioning and behaviour. He had served as the Chief Minister of Gujarat for three terms but enjoyed calling himself a ‘chaiwala’ (tea seller), a profession which he claimed to have practised in his childhood. Despite serving as India’s Prime Minister, he calls himself a ‘chowkidar’ (watchman),” said Telangana Congress unit Treasurer Gudur Narayana Reddy.
“His speeches clearly reflect his pervasive distrust and suspicion of others and their motives which is a major characteristic of a person suffering from Paranoid Personality Disorder,” Reddy said in a statement.
Reddy said it was common that a person might not realize that he was having a personality disorder as his way of thinking and behaviour looks natural to him. Same is the case with Modi, he said.
“If Modi is not having issues pertaining to his mental health, then he is consciously and wilfully cheating the entire nation with his diversionary and divisive politics.”
The Congress leader advised the BJP leadership to convince Modi to undergo a full mental health check-up so that he could be cured of Personality Disorder or any other disease he may be suffering from, especially his tendency to hold grudges against all others.
Reddy condemned the suspension of IAS officer Mohammed Mohsin who checked the Prime Minister’s chopper in Odisha’s Sambalpur on April 16.
He said that the Election Commission had acted in haste in taking action against the IAS officer under provisions which does not exist.
