Rahul Gandhi said Prime Minister Modi’s karma awaited him
New Delhi. Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘karma’ awaited him and that the battle was over.
He was responding to PM Modi’s jibe that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was Bhrashtachari No. 1.
Taking to twitter, Gandhi said, “Modi Ji, the battle is over. Your Karma awaits you. Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father won’t protect you. All my love and a huge hug. Rahul.”
The war of words between Gandhi and Modi came a day before voting for fifth phase of polls takes place on Monday, with Gandhi’s own constituency, Amethi, going to polls as well.
The party’s core committee member and former Union Minister P. Chidambaram also hit back at the PM in a series of messages on Twitter.
“ Modi has crossed all limits of propriety and decency by defaming a man (Rajiv Gandhi) who died in 1991,” Chidambaram wrote. He added that the charges against Rajiv Gandhi were dropped by the Delhi High Court.
Chidambaram wrote: “Does Modi read anything at all? Does he know that the charge against Rajiv Gandhi was thrown out by the High Court, Delhi as ‘completely baseless?’”
He also pointed out that it was a BJP government that decided not to file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the said HC judgment. – PTI
