BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today launched a scathing attack on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and questioned whether he was angry for anti Sikh riots in 1984.
He took a dig at Rahul’s statement a day before in which he said that he was angry at the assassination of his grandmother. “Were all Congress people angry? And whether Congressmen killed thousands of Sikhs in this anger. Were you angry over killing of thousands of people”, Modi said addressing a rally in Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh.
He also criticized Rahul for accusing BJP for engineering riots. Referring to Rahul’s statement that Pakistan’s ISI was trying to “trap” some Muslim youth victims of Muzaffarnagar riots Modi said “First Congress should come out clear as to how ‘shahzada’ got briefs from intelligence agencies. He does not hold any office and how come that he is briefed”, he said.
By linking ISI with Muslim youth Shahzada has raised questions over the integrity of Indian Muslims. He demanded an apology from Rahul for his statement. Modi promised development of the region if his party was voted to power. He accused UPA government of giving development package for the region only to appease the BSP and SP leaders.
