BJP on Thursday insisted that Congress president Rahul Gandhi will not be able to launch his career by “taking flight on Rafale aircraft” and counseled him to focus more on facts than merely “parroting” from the prepared script.
“Rafale mein bethkar unka career launch nahi hoga (Just by taking a flight on Rafale aircraft, Rahul Gandhi cannot launch his political career,” BJP spokesman Sambit Patra told reporters here shortly after Congress President addressed a press conference here slamming government on Rafale aircraft deal with France and also on the noteban.
“You are simply parroting the points you have already made earlier….People of this country have already answered on all your allegations on demonetisation,” Mr Patra said and cited the instance of BJP’s unprecedented electoral victory in UP by-elections that was held immediately after enforcing demonetisation of high value currencies.
“In democracy, the best judge is the people of the country,” he said.
The BJP leader said – “Even before UP assembly elections, the Congress president had said that people have suffered and everything has been destroyed….But in reality if any one stood humbled and destroyed in UP polls it was the Congress party – whose strength came down to seven”.
“On the contrary with people’s mandate, BJP could win 325 seats,” he pointed out. “Even after the UP mandate, Rahulji you are continuing with the same script writer and repeating the same allegation”.
“The final answer on demonetisation is linked to the agony of Mr Gandhi and his family and party.
Why they are wailing inconsolably for last two years is because, the purkho (fore fathers) of Gandhi family had looted the country and all their treasures preserved in big bags have been reduced to mere papers,” Mr Patra alleged.
“From jeep scam (of 1948) to the Augusta Westland scam….all these money have become papers due to demonetsation,” he remarked.
In last two days, the BJP-led regime has come under attack on Rafale aircraft deal with the Congress party pressing for a Joint Parliamentary Probe.
“How about a Joint Parliamentary Committee to sort it out?,” Mr Rahul Gandhi had tweeted on Wednesday.
