The controversial founder of All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) Badruddin Ajmal launched a personal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 12 April by vowing to throw him out of the country.

Ajmal was quoted by ANI as saying that he along with other members of the Gathbandhan would come together to throw Modi out of the country. He added that after that the Prime Minister can set up a tea stall somewhere and also sell pakodas.

Ajmal incidentally is no stranger to controversies. He had earlier threatened to smash a journalist’s head.

All the journalist did was to ask Ajmal whether he would be allying with the BJP or the Congress for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

He could be seen getting aggressive with the journalist, pushing away his mike, and then trying to snatch away the same mike, all the while threatening him with gruesome consequences.

AIUDF party workers reportedly later forced the journalist to apologise on the spot.

Ajmal did, however, reveal that the AIUDF was looking forward to any arrangement that came as part of the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ in Delhi.
