Congress back Rahul, says PM Modi insulted India on foreign soil not Rahul Gandhi


New Delhi, 12 September(Wishav Warta): The Congress said on Tuesday it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who “insulted” India on foreign soil, after the BJP accused Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi of belittling the Prime Minister in his speech at a US university.

“We are surprised at the criticism that is unwarranted and unjustified made by the government and ruling party. The statements and issues raised by Union Information and Broadcasting Minister (Smriti Irani) shows ignorance of history and her eagerness to be an apologist for the Prime Minister (Narendra Modi),” Congress leader Anand Sharma said on Tuesday.

“Rahul Gandhi spoke about India’s achievements in the last 70 years. We understand why BJP is criticising him. If Rahul Gandhi is criticising the Prime Minister of the country, no one should have any objection to that. It’s a feature of democracy,” he said. Irani at a press conference on Tuesday morning criticised the Congress vice-president’s speech at the University of California, Berkeley, and said Rahul Gandhi chose to belittle the Prime Minister.
