Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his remarks that there were no detention centres in the country, alleging that "RSS's Prime Minister lies to Bharat Mata". Taking to Twitter, he also attached a video clip with Modi accusing the Congress, its allies and "urban Naxals" of spreading the rumour that Muslims will be sent to detention centres.
The clip also shows a purported detention centre being constructed in Assam. "RSS's Prime Minister lies to Bharat Mata," Gandhi said in the tweet in Hindi with the hashtag 'Jhoot Jhoot Jhoot (lies, lies, lies).
Earlier also, Rahul Gandhi had launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the party's Rajghat protest against the amended Citizenship Act, accusing him of spreading hatred and breaking the country, while warning that the people will not let him suppress the voice of "Bharat Mata" or attack the Constitution.
Gandhi said Modi's organisation had taught him how to break the country and spread hatred for years.
"You should not forget that if you stand before the voice of 'Bharat Mata', and try to suppress students, judiciary, then 'Bharat Mata will give a strong reply," he said.
The Congress leader was addressing the gathering at the "Satyagraha for Unity", a protest organised against the amended Citizenship Act and the proposed countrywide National Register of Citizens (NRC) as well as for expressing solidarity with the youth and students protesting against it.
"The people of the country, this voice of 'Bharat Mata' will not allow you to attack the country and not allow this country to be divided," he said .
