Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's attack on Congress, likening it to termites, on Sunday (March 3) triggered a war of words between leaders of the two parties. Modi lashed out at the "commission-seeking" Congress-led UPA government which is destroying the nation like a termite. "Congress is destroying this country like termites. It is very difficult to deal with termites - you finish them in one place and they rise in another. The only medicine for this ailment is sweat of the BJP worker," he told the BJP National Council meeting in New Delhi.
