Senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad today hit back at Congress MP Rahul Gandhi for the allegations levelled by him against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government in the Lok Sabha.

”We condemn the baseless allegations levelled by Rahul Gandhi against our government while speaking in Parliament today. I need to remind him that he, his mother and his brother-in-law are on bail. I want to ask him what are National Herald & AgustaWestland scandals,” Prasad said at a press conference soon after the Congress MP’s speech while participating in the motion of thanks to the President for her address to the joint session of Parliament.

Rahul earlier accused the PM of having close links with businessman Gautam Adani, who is facing allegations of stock manipulation and unsustainable debt since the Hindenburg report was released recently.

The BJP leader said the Congress and its leaders were involved in all those big scams which tarnished the image of India. The Congress party, according to him, was based on the twin pillars of corruption and protecting the corrupt. he said. “Corruption and giving protection to the corrupt have been the history of Rahul Gandhi and his family,” Prasad added.

He said if Rahul had to level such allegations, he should have submitted them earlier with evidence and documents. The Congress MP should have done adequate research and “home-work” before levelling charges against the PM or the BJP-led government, he added.

“He (Rahul) should have asked his brother-in-law for the land he had acquired for mega projects in Rajasthan. The Ashok Gehlot government comes under his party and he should have asked his own leader about the projects it has given to Adani and his groups,” Prasad added.

The Adani Group has been in the eye of a storm following allegations of fraud and stock manipulation by the US-based short-selling firm.
