The BJP today accused Rahul Gandhi of belittling India in his address at an event in Germany, alleging that the Congress president justified terrorism and “lied through his teeth” to attack the Modi government.
Demanding Rahul Gandhi to explain on his comments, BJP Spokesperson Sambit Patra lamented that Rahul Gandhi has denigrated the minorities of the country. He said said that Rahul Gandhi’s comments are deplorable and he must come out with explanation.
It may be recalled that addressing a gathering at the Bucerius Summer School in Hamburg yesterday, Gandhi had cited the example of Islamic State to say that exclusion of a large number of people from the development process could lead to the creation of terrorist groups in the world. He then accused the BJP government of excluding tribals, Dalits and minorities from the development narrative and “this could be a dangerous thing”.
Alleging that Rahul’s speech was full of lies and deception, Patra deplored Gandhi has a poor opinion of India. Adding the Congress chief harped on about China even though, he claimed, India had become one of the leading countries in the world under the Modi government.
