Amit Shah: "Rahul Gandhi's Shallow-Minded Politics Pleased China, Pakistan"
New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah has accused the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of doing "ochhi rajniti"(Shallow minded politics)and has challenged him for discussion in the Parliament on the LAC stand-off over his "Surender Mondi" tweets.
The Home Minister said that "Parliament will run, if the opposition wants to have a discussion then they should come" adding "1962 se aaj tak do-do haath ho jayein..."
In an interview with the news agency ANI, Home Minister Amit Shah said that Rahul Gandhi should introspect that if his hashtag of "Surender Modi" is being encouraged by China and Pakistan.
Further speaking in the interview, Amit Shah said that "We're capable of handling anti-India propaganda but it's painful when a former president of a big party (Rahul Gandhi) does 'ochhi rajneeti' during a crisis. It's a matter of introspection for him and his party that their hashtag is being encouraged by Pak and China."
Rebuking the Congress party Mr. Shah said that,"After Indira Ji, was there any Congress President from outside Gandhi family? What democracy do they talk of? I didn't do any politics during COVID.You look at my tweets for the past 10 years. Every June 25, I give a statement."
"Emergency should be remembered by people as it attacked the roots of our democracy. No political worker or citizen should forget. There should be aware of it. It is not about a party but about the attack on the country's democracy," Amit Shah added in response over his tweet on Emergency.
"Government of India fought well against Corona. I can't advise Rahul Gandhi, that's the job of his party leaders. Some people are 'vakradrashti', they see wrong even in the right things. India fought well against Corona and our figures are much better compared to the world," the Home Minister said.
Also, speaking on the coronavirus situation in Delhi and on Manish Sisodia Statement, Shah said that after Sisodia's statement "...there was panic. I am sure now we will not reach that stage and will be in a much better situation because we stressed preventive measures."
The Home Minister while responding on the fight against COVID-19 and the tensions on the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh said "Let me make it clear. Under PM Modi's leadership, India is going to win both the wars".
