Ahmedabad, Jul 29 - Congress MP from Maharashtra Vijay Darda today praised Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's style of functioning and termed him as a 'tiger'.
"Modi's commitment and dedication towards work bears resemblance to that of a tiger," Darda, who shared dais with Modi at an award ceremony here, said.
The Congress MP, who is also the editor-in-chief of a media house, was given 'Tarun Kranti Awards' at the event for his services rendered to society through his media house.
The other two recipients of the awards for social service were Baba Ramdev and Jain International Trade Organisation (JITO).
Speaking on the occasion, Modi said Darda might have to pay a price for his comments made in Gujarat.
"It won't be surprising to read tomorrow's breaking news that Darda has been served a show-cause notice from the party high command for praising Modi," he said, taking a dig at Congress leadership.
Darda, later clarified that he did not mean anything political through his comments on Modi. "I was just expressing my heart-felt feelings at a religious function," he said.
"In our culture, we always speak good about the host and this is a religious function, so none of my comments should be misconstrued as political remarks," Darda said. PTI
