Reacting sharply to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s criticism over the government’s handling of the India-China issue, BJP MP Virendra Singh Mast said, “It is not possible for any school or social worker to make him (Rahul Gandhi) understand such matters.”
Rahul Gandhi last week said during the UPA’s rule, “China would not dare to take a step inside our territory”. He said had UPA been in power, “we would have evicted and thrown out China and it would not have taken 15 minutes to do so”. The BJP MP on Sunday asked Gandhi to study the matter in detail.
On Monday, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy lashed out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and said that if he wants to scrap the laws, he could do so in “next life” as the farmer would not give him an opportunity in this. Earlier in the day, Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh predicted a Congress majority in the next Lok Sabha polls and asked Rahul Gandhi to scrap the three laws ‘when he becomes PM’.
Speaking to ANI, Reddy took a jibe at Rahul and said that the whole country knows who Rahul Gandhi is and what his cognitive capabilities are, adding that the people of India will not give Rahul Gandhi a chance to throw the bill.
“The whole country knows who Rahul Gandhi is and what his cognitive capabilities are. The farmers will not give him an opportunity to scrap the farm laws and throw them in the dustbin. Not in this life. The farmers know it’s a good law. Rahul Gandhi has every right to tear the farm bills (opposition members has last month tore the Bills in Rajya Sabha) and throw them in a wastebasket.
He can do so in his next life when he comes to power. But the people of India will not give Rahul Gandhi the chance to throw the bill. These bills are in the favour of the farmers,” he said.
Earlier, Gandhi admitted that there are loopholes in the Mandi, procurement and PDS system. But lashing out at PM Modi, he said that the Centre was not improving the system in order to benefit big corporates. Previously on Sunday, he had iterated that ‘if Congress voted to power (at Centre) it will scrap the Farm laws’ in a Ludhiana rally. Gandhi along with Singh, Congress’ state in-charge Harish Rawat, Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar and other party leaders held a tractor rally too to protest the new farm Laws.
