Congress party has reacted strongly to BJP president JP Nadda’s jibe at Rahul Gandhi terming him as anti- national .
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge hit back at Nadda for his comments on Rahul Gandhi as he told ANI, They (BJP) themselves are anti-national. They never took part in India’s freedom movement. And they’re calling others anti-national. They are doing this to deviate from issues of unemployment & inflation. Can Rahul Gandhi ever be anti-national? Are people who debate about democracy anti-national? I condemn JP Nadda’s statement. Why are they not giving Rahul Gandhi a chance to speak in Parliament.
Earlier BJP president JP Nadda led his party’s attack on Rahul Gandhi over the Congress leader’s recent comments made in the UK on the state of Indian democracy, charging him with becoming a “permanent part of the toolkit” working against India that seeks a weak government here so as to exploit it for its benefits.
In a statement, Nadda accused Gandhi of speaking the language of “anti-India” George Soros, a billionaire financier, and alleged that the Congress and the “so-called Left liberals” have become a part of the “deep state” conspiracy involving foreign forces against the country. “Anti-national” Congress leaders have been speaking the language of Pakistan, he added.
