Amid raging controversy over statements by Bharatiya Janata Party leader Giriraj Singh and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia, BJP prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that he disapproved of "petty" statements by those claiming to be BJP's well-wishers as they are deviating from the campaign.

"Petty statements by those claiming to be BJP's well-wishers are deviating the campaign from the issues of development and good governance," Modi said.

"I disapprove (of) any such irresponsible statements and appeal to those making them to kindly refrain from doing so," he said in a series of tweets on micro-blogging site Twitter.

"With great happiness, the entire nation is looking toward BJP for going to people solely on the issue of good governance and development," he further said.

Giriraj Singh had said that those opposing Modi should be sent to Pakistan while Togadia had asked his supporters to forcibly vacate a house purchased by a Muslim in a Hindu-majority area of Bhavnagar.
