New Delhi: The Congress was upset over “inappropriate tweets” of some BJP leaders on Rahul Gandhi and demanded action by the party.
Addressing a press Conference here on Monday, party spokesperson Gourav Vallabh said, “Where is the Minister of Women and Child Development hiding, and why is she silent on the comments made by Mr. CTR Nirmal Kumar? Busy in concocting stories and twisting facts?”
“The most insensitive, toxic, degenerate comment that has come out is by the BJP Tamil Nadu IT cell head. This comment brings out the true mindset of the BJP leaders and workers. While they may operate in the mindset that Mr. CTR Nirmal Kumar tried to bring out, the world works differently and doesn’t want to be painted in the light that BJP wants them to,” he added
The comments are vulgar in nature which can’t be mentioned. The Congress alleged that “the more dangerous fact was that while they have been on a ‘Bharat Todo Yatra’ since 2014, the BJP are resorting to niggling tricks, blatant lies, and misguiding the people against the people with pious intentions of Bharat Jodo”.
He said there was a sense of fret and discomfort amongst the top cadre of the BJP with the love, affection and support that Rahul Gandhi was receiving from the people in his Bharat Jodo Yatra.
“The entire government machinery has been put up against one man trying to correct what the BJP government has destroyed in the last 8 years. When they couldn’t find a flaw against the intention and the execution, senior leaders and cabinet ministers have stooped as low as resorting to twisting facts and spreading blatant lies. Some leaders have even let go of all ethical values. Presenting some instances of where the fret and discomfort have brought about some lies and degenerative comments from the BJP leaders and ministers,” he said.
Vallabh said, “Smriti Zubin Irani, honorable minister of Women and Child Development and Minority Affairs dared to twist the facts intentionally and lie about how Shri Rahul Gandhi ji didn’t pay tribute to Swami Vivekananda. The fact was that Shri Rahul Gandhi ji visited the Vivekananda Rock Memorial and paid his tributes to Swami Vivekananda while launching the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Kanyakumari.”
