No word on Rafale deal in his 1-hour speech: Rahul Gandhi hits back at PM Modi

Reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Lok Sabha speech attacking Congress party, Rahul Gandhi said Modi never spoke on crucial topics such as Rafale deal and farmers issue.

Speaking to reporters, the Congress president said: “He (Modi) spoke for more than an hour, but didn’t speak a word on Rafale deal.”

Rahul Gandhi expressed that he thinks Modi has forgotten that he is the PM now. He should answer questions and not always accuse the opposition, Mr.Gandhi added.

Earlier in the day, PM Modi said Partition was a result of Congress’ wrong policies. “Not a single day has passed when country has not suffered due to poision sowed by you,” Modi said.

People of Telangana were suffering for the hurried division of Andhra Pradesh by Congress, which took only politics into consideration during the deed, said PM Modi.

He said: “Under Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s government too states were divided, but they were done with everyone’s confidence… the process was smooth… But the Congress has messed up in dividing Andhra Pradesh. They did it in a hurry, and without much thought.”

“When we speak about creating new states, we remember the manner in which Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji created Uttarakhand, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh. He showed how farsighted decision making is done,” Modi added.
