New Delhi, August 17
Rahul Gandhi’s “improbity” swipe on the PM CARES Fund on Monday drew a robust counter-attack from BJP president JP Nadda who mocked the Congress chief as “prince of incompetence” and accused him of “spreading fake news”.
Nadda didn’t title Gandhi however the Congress chief was apparently his goal.
Gandhi had tweeted “PM CARES for Right To Improbity” whereas tagging a information report that alleged the Prime Minister’s Office had denied an RTI software in search of data on the fund.
Hitting again, Nadda tweeted, “This happens when the ‘Prince of Incompetence’ shares articles without even reading them. The RTI was filed to know details of other RTIs and this is maliciously spun by you as an attack on transparency. Well, it’s natural given how your career is only based on spreading fake news.”
He stated the complete nation has full religion within the prime minister and his initiatives, and this religion was but once more “visible with the massive support” for the PM CARES Fund.
“Being the loser you are, you can only crib and spread fake news while the entire nation has joined hands in the fight against COVID-19,” he stated in an obvious assault on Gandhi.
Keeping up his cost, Nadda alleged, “Your family’s dubious legacy includes appropriating a permanent position in PMNRF (Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund) and then diverting money from PMNRF into your family trusts. You and your mother also took money from the Chinese to hurt our national interest. Can anyone stoop lower?”
He was apparently referring to the declare that foundations run by the Gandhi household had obtained donations from the Chinese embassy.
The Congress has in flip accused the BJP of resorting to diversionary ploys to deflect folks’s consideration from the federal government’s alleged failures.
Responding to Nadda, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewal stated, “Dear Nadda ji. Please don’t be ‘peeved’! Simply ask Modi ji to provide info on nearly Rs 10,000 cr received in PM CARES. Give names of ‘donors’ (including Chinese co’s) and details of expenditure. Get it audited by CAG. ‘Reason and transparency’ is the solution, not ‘rage and irritation’.” PTI
