Union Minister Anurag Thakur took a dig at the Congress party over leader Rahul Gandhi’s controversial remark during his recent London visit. Bracing the stage at the News18 India Chaupal, Thakur not only slammed Rahul for his UK comments but also pointed out his Bharat Jodo Yatra and a related visit by a team of Delhi Police at his residence.
“The Rajiv Gandhi foundation received funds from China, which is why Congress can never speak against that country. China was not able to take a single piece of land from India, yet Rahul spoke against our soldiers,” he said.
मैं चुनौती देता हूं, किसी भी मंच पर आ जाएं राहुल गांधी, मैं सामने खड़े हो कर उनको हर एक विषय पर बोलने का मौका दूंगा- अनुराग ठाकुर@ianuragthakur @AmanChopra_ #News18IndiaChaupal pic.twitter.com/Zld6qftFFL— News18 India (@News18India) March 20, 2023
Talking about the Centre’s efforts towards the soldiers, Thakur said, “Under Modi government, our soldiers have got made in India weapons, bullet proof jackets, snow suits and boots, but Congress couldn’t give them anything.”
Rahul Gandhi’s residence was visited by the Delhi Police to inquire about his “women are still being sexually assaulted” statement during one of his Bharat Jodo Yatra speeches. “Rahul Gandhi in his yatra talked about women being harassed but was not able to speak when Delhi Police reached his residence, why?” questioned Thakur.
Rahul Gandhi in his initial response termed the police action “unprecedented” and questioned the process as well as the sudden urgency shown over his remarks made in Srinagar 45 days ago. He also sought 8-10 days for a detailed response to the queries, sources said.
“I challenge Rahul Gandhi to speak in Parliament and I will only attend if he speaks. I will answer him, I don’t need to target him but if he targets India, he should expect some reaction” he further said.
