Union textile minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday reacted to Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Amarnath terror attack. She said that Rahul chose to attack PM Modi when nation stands united against terrorism.
“Upon return from strategic and very well-known holiday Mr Gandhi has chosen to attack PM, especially when nation stands united against terrorism,” said Irani.
"Mr. Gandhi speaks about personal gain, now everybody in our country knows and history has given evidence that when it comes to challenges with regard to Kashmir those challenges are given out to country courtesy the Nehru-Gandhi family," said Irani.
“There are few questions he needs to answer, that when Cong representative MS Aiyar goes to Pak and says please help us remove Narendra Modi and his government so that we can come back to power, is that strategy for Rahul Gandhi's personal gain or is that political strategy?” asked textile minister.
The textile minister said that everybody in country knows that very soon Mr. Gandhi will be off to another holiday, this is just a stopgap arrangement when he comes back to India he needs to find one statement which he needs to give against the PM.
Earlier in the day, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi said that short-term political gain for Prime Minister Narendra Modi from PDP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir has cost India massively.
Rahul equated Modi’s personal gains to India’s strategic loss and sacrifice of innocent Indian blood. He added that PM Modi’s policies have created space for terrorists in Kashmir which is a grave strategic blow.
