Not the first time Rahul Gandhi insulted backward communities: Irani

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday launched a fresh attack on Rahul Gandhi stating it’s not for the first time that the former Congress president insulted the Dalit communities.

Irani said not only this, Congress leaders didn’t even spare the Honourable President and made insulting remarks about her following directions from the Gandhi family.

“The whole nation is witness to Rahul’s shameful remarks about the OBCs” Union Minister Smriti Irani said here, while addressing a press conference here at party headquarters.

“The political psychosis of Rahul Gandhi is on full display. He has become a habitual liar, uttering lies in the country and in the foreign lands” she alleged.

Irani’s remarks came days after Rahul Gandhi, post his disqualification as Lok Sabha member, during a press conference said “My name is not Savarkar, my name is Gandhi, and Gandhi does not offer an apology to anyone”.

The BJP has been demanding an apology from Rahul Gandhi over his ‘Modi surname’ remark for which he was convicted by a Surat court last week.

The Minister also said that Rahul Gandhi has publicly claimed that he’d attack Narendra Modi and rip his image apart.

“This is not for the first time that someone from the Gandhi family threatened Narendra Modi,” she said.

Irani said in order to tarnish PM Modi’s image, he (Rahul Gandhi) lied inside India, abroad and the Parliament. “This is the person who apologizes by rubbing his nose in front of the Supreme Court and today pretends not to be a coward,” she said.

In May 2019, Rahul Gandhi had tendered an unconditional apology in the Supreme Court for his ‘Chowkidar Chor hai’ jibe against Prime Minister Modi.
