Opposition, Centre lock horns over Rahul Gandhi's "corrupt" comment on PM
New Delhi [India], Dec. 15 (ANI): The opposition and the Centre locked horns over Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's "corrupt" comment on Prime Minister Narnedra Modi on Thursday.
Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar warned the BJP to take Rahul Gandhi seriously and sarcastically reminded Prime Minister Modi of auctioning his suit when Rahul Gandhi last spoke.
"I want to advise the BJP not to take Rahul Gandhi ji lightly. They should not forget that when Rahul Gandhi ji spoke earlier, Modi ji had to auction his 'suit-boot' clothes," Raj Babbar told ANI.
"If I am not wrong, some neighbour of him (Prime Minister Modi) bought the suit. When Rahul Gandhi ji spoke, he made him (Modi) sell his clothes. So be careful before speaking," Babbar added.
"If Rahul ji is speaking something, they (BJP) should take him seriously and should not deceive the government. The common man should not be deceived.
On the other hand, the government is ready to give it back every time the opposition takes a dig at it.
Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir said, "Nobody takes Rahul Gandhi seriously because he himself is not serious."
Ahir further said, "Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji is a big strength, not just in nation, but all across the world. It is not right to come into limelight by targeting him. I don't this he will succeed in his attempts."
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is terrified him as he would reveal all of his wrong doings.
"I have already said before the Prime Minister is personally terrified of me being allowed to open my mouth inside the Lok Sabha, because I have information on the PM that is going to explode his balloon," he said. (ANI)
