‘BJP has no time to meet farmers, only indulging in petty politics’, says Congress in Rahul’s support
Congress in Rahul’s support: As the BJP taunted Rahul Gandhi over his foreign tour while the Congress celebrated its 136th foundation day on Monday, the party defended him by saying BJP are doing low-level politics, and everybody has the right to do personal visits.
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi had left for abroad on Sunday for a personal visit, the party stated.
However, the Party didn’t disclose Rahul’s destination, the main representative of Congress, Randeep Surjewala, affirmed that he will be away for a couple of days.
When the media asked where the Congress leader went, Surjewala didn’t reveal the details. As per Hindustan Times sources, Gandhi left for Milan in Italy on a Qatar Airways early morning.
“Rahul Gandhi has gone to visit a family member who is seriously ill. He has not gone out on a vacation. He usually goes to visit his maternal grandma this season, each year. I never thought BJP ought to have issues with him visiting an ill family member,” Surjewala told columnists.
Surjewala added, “Why don’t the Bharatiya Janata Party ministers and the Prime Minister take care of the farmers of the nation? Rather than wasting time in taunting the opposition party, why don’t they focus on running the nation? “They should be traveling 20 kilometers to talk to the farmers? Why is the PM so arrogant that he is unwilling to personally speak to the farmers?” he inquired.
Rahul’s abroad trip comes a day ahead of Congress’ 136th Foundation Day festivities on Monday. The flag party will be raised at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters.
Congress general secretary KC Venugopal stated that BJP leaves no occasion to target Rahul Gandhi, “Rahul has gone to see his grandma. Is anything wrong with it? Everyone has the right to pay personal visits. Rahul Gandhi is no more the party president but still, he has taken part in all meetings and rallies. The BJP is doing nothing but low-level politics,” he added.
The matter isn’t about Rahul Gandhi but the farmers fighting in the cold for their rights and PM Narendra Modi or his ministers don’t have time to even meet them, Venugopal added.
