Union Minister Anurag Thakur accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of maligning the country’s image and sowing the seeds of hatred.
Anurag Thakur said, “this is what you can expect from Rahul Gandhi, whose history is linked to corruption and riots.”
He further accused Gandhi of ‘sowing the seeds of hatred’ and said, “he is doing no good to the country. He is only maligning the country’s image.”
Earlier today, Rahul Gandhi attacked the ruling party over the use of bulldozers in riot-hit areas of Delhi and states like Madhya Pradesh and requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to switch off “bulldozers of hate” and switch on power plants.
Gandhi tweeted, “8 years of big talk has resulted in India having ONLY 8 DAYS of coal stocks. Modi Ji, stagflation is looming. Power cuts will crush small industries, leading to more job losses. Switch off the bulldozers of hate and switch on the power plants!”
