While the PM did not name former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, he took a dig at him for his recent foreign trip.
The entire country is standing with Jammu and Kashmir with this decision to scrap Article 370). But some Congress leaders are spreading rumours about this decision in the country and abroad. Bangkok, Thailand, Vietnam… You (Congress) are free to import abuses from wherever you want, say what you want. But please, don’t backstab India that is moving forward. – Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Rahul Gandhi’s foreign trip has come been brought up by the BJP leaders more than once during the election campaigns. Earlier Home Minister Amit Shah had said, “When elections are being held in Haryana and Maharashtra, Rahul Gandhi is on a holiday. I want to tell Rahul Gandhi, you should come to Haryana and tell people whether you support the removal of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir or not”.
PM Modi also dared the Congress to announce that it would bring back Article 370 when it comes to power. He asked people to vote for the BJP in the 21 October elections to keep India secure.
