Face-off: PM talks of ‘political damaads’, Rahul takes dig at ’56-inch chest’
Brand-new DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi were engaged in yet another face-off on Friday.
During a speech at the centenary celebrations of former J&K minister Girdhari Lal Dogra in Jammu, Prime Minster Narendra Modi said “we all know how politcal damaads can be’ in what is seen as a reference to Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra.
PM Modi heaped praise on Girdhari Lal Dogra and said that he was a good judge of people.
“The example of his good judgment can be seen in the son-in-law he chose,” PM Modi said amid applause and laughter referring to finance minister Arun Jaitley.
The Prime Minster then went on to take a dig as to how political damaads can become a trouble.
Moments later, in Jaipur adressing party workers, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi once again targeted PM Modi reminding him or her of his pre-poll promise of ‘Na khaoonga, na khane doonga’.
Rahul additionally took a dig at his 56-inch chest remark as he slammed the BJP-led Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh government.
“Modiji ka 56-inch ka chhati 5.6 inch ka ho jayega,” Rahul said.
Rahul Gandhi, who is on a tour of Rajasthan, said that the remote control of Vasundhara Raje government joined London.
He once again questioned PM’s silence on Lalit Modi controversy and the Vyapam scam.
Rahul’s attack evoked a quick response from the BJP.
BJP leader Sambit Patra said, “People who have actually a vision of 5.6 mm are obviously not able to look beyond that.”
