Better to be at God's mercy than Sonia, Modi to PM

Countering Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's [Images] taunts, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi [Images] on Saturday said it is better to be at the 'mercy of God' than Congress leader Sonia Gandhi [Images].
As the poll campaign got bitter with just three days left for the first phase of polls, Modi reacted to Dr Singh's remarks at an election rally in Surat that people of Gujarat are at the 'mercy of God' if they oppose the Bharatiya Janata Party government.
Modi's choice of words was same as Dr Singh, apparently to get even with him, when he asked: "Is it not better to be at the mercy of God than being at the mercy of Sonia Gandhi?"
