Congress fight over Rahul's Bahrain speech

Share

Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday lashed out at Rahul Gandhi's speech in Bahrain and said the Congress president doesn't see the work done by BJP and is trying to spread hatred overseas.

He drew a contrast between Mr. Gandhi's speeches and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to 270 parliamentarians of Indian Origin in New Delhi this morning, which he said was aimed at "boosting ties between India and other countries".

Taking exception to Gandhi's criticism of India on foreign soil, Union law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said in a briefing at the BJP HQ in the capital that it was expected of the Congress chief that he would not harp on political differences and "spread hatred in a foreign country as he did in India".

"I am not only surprised but amused at the kind of statements being made by the president of the Congress party".

He referred to the Triple Talaq bill, whose passage the Congress had stalled in the Rajya Sabha and accused the Congress of failing to take a stand on an issue of woman's respect and justice.

"The party that can not take a stand on women rights, dignity and honour is trying to teach us on foreign soil".

Accusing the Congress of having "double standards", Prasad said: "For the longest time, the politics of hate and communalism has been practised by the Congress".
