Union minister Giriraj Singh on Wednesday likened Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to
Bhasmasura the mythological demon who was tricked into burning himself to ashes by an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

The firebrand BJP leader from Bihar, who is known for his hard-hitting remarks against adversaries, came up with the analogy on his official twitter handle.

Pakistans Prime Minister would do better not to become a Bhasmasura. Instead of harbouring thoughts of a nuclear war with India, which will be suicidal (for Pakistan) he should heed the advice of Modi and fight against poverty, unemployment and hunger which spawn terrorism, Singh who represents the Begusarai Lok Sabha seat said.

Khan, in his address to the nation on Tuesday, had said if the (Kashmir) conflict moves towards war, then remember both nations have nuclear weapons and no one is a winner in a nuclear war. It will have global ramifications.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who met US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of G-7 summit, recalled his conversation with his Pakistan counterpart in July 2018 saying I told him Pakistan has to fight against poverty, India also has to fight against it.

Pakistan has to fight against illiteracy and disease, and India has also to fight against them told him we should work together for the welfare of our people.

In a number of subsequent tweets, Singh, who is Minister of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, also accused Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party of having inflicted many
wounds on India.

He also ridiculed the former Congress president for a tweet earlier in the day in which he had stated I disagree with this government on many issues. But let me make this absolutely clear.

Kashmir is India's internal issue and there is no room for Pakistan or any other foreign country to interfere in it".

The BJP has been accusing the Congress of helping Pakistan by its opposition to the recent scrapping of special status enjoyed by Jammu and Kashmir.
