BJP raps Congress for defending Rahul on ‘Dalali’ jibe
New Delhi, Oct 7 (IANS) The BJP on Friday severely criticised the Congress for defending its Vice President Rahul Gandhi over his ‘Khoon Ki Dalali’ remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Addressing a press conference here, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the Congress is busy doing ‘Rahul Gandhi Bhakti’ (worship) and was not bothered about the interests of the country.
“For them (Congress), defending Rahul Gandhi is more important than defending the country,” the minister said, adding that the Congress Vice President has embarrassed his party by making the ‘Dalali’ remark against the Prime Minister.
“Yesterday (Thursday), it was very embarrassing (for the Congress). I know some Congress leaders, who are disturbed because of what he had said,” the Union Law Minister said.
He said it is not the first time that Rahul Gandhi has made such a statement.
