Prime Minister Narendra Modi is celebrating his 67th Birthday today amidst huge celebrations around the country. With Narendra Modi, India has found the leadership for development and for reclaiming its great heritage and world influence.
Apart from his staunch leadership and love for India, PM Modi also has a strong infatuation towards acronyms and often comes up with new ones. In fact his love affair with acronyms runs so deep that Congress once termed him an acronym addict.
Here are some of his funniest acronyms:
1- SCAM: Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati
PM Modi coined the word SCAM during the recent UP assembly election campaign. It caught the eye of both opposition leaders and netizens.
2- VIKAS- Vidyut, Kanoon and Sadak
During the UP assembly election campaign, PM Modi promised that BJP will bring VIKAS – Vidyut (electricity), Kanoon (law and order) and Sadak (roads) if voted to power.
3- Three AKs
In 2014, PM Modi took a jibe at 3 AKs who were providing strength to Pakistan. He said,
“Three AKs have emerged as a unique strength for Pakistan. One is the AK 47 (rifle) which has been used to spill blood in Kashmir. The second is (Defence Minister) A K Antony, who told Parliament that people wearing uniforms of the Pakistani army beheaded our soldiers, even as our Army said that they were Pakistanis and the third AK is AK 49, who has just given birth to a new party(indirect jibe at Arvind Kejriwal).”
4- ABCD: Adarsh, Bofors, Coal and Damaad (son-in law)
PM Modi coined ABCD during the election campaign of 2014. He used it to define Adarsh housing scam, Bofors scam, Coal scam and Damaad (son-in law), an obvious reference to Robert Vadra.
5- RSVP- Rahul Sonia Vadra Priyanka
He coined RSVP also during the election campaign of 2014. He used it to accuse congress of favoritism and said the UPA followed an ‘RSVP model’ of governance which meant that their policies only favoured Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Robert Vadra and Priyanka Gandhi.
6- SABKA – Saamajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, and Congress party
While addressing a crowd during the election campaign of 2014, he said that ‘Sabka Vinaash Hoga’, i.e. Saamajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, and Congress party will be finished.
7-MOM – Mars Orbiter Mission
While congratulating ISRO scientists after the successful launch of MARS mission in 2014, he said, “MOM would never disappoint. I knew this as soon as I came to know of the name of the mission.”
