Modi a serial liar: Cong on PM's INS Viraat allegation
New Delhi: Hitting back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for alleging that the late Rajiv Gandhi used INS Viraat as "personal taxi" on a family vacation, the Congress on Thursday said, "He (Modi) is a "serial liar" who does not have the courage to fight elections on issues such as unemployment and demonetisation."
Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said that retired Indian Navy Vice Admiral Vinod Pasricha has clarified that the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was on an official visit on INS Viraat and not on a vacation.
"But facts don't matter to Modi. He doesn't have anything to talk about his own achievements. Rahul Gandhi has been challenging him for the last six months now to debate on Rafale deal, demonetisation, unemployment, but Modi does not have the courage to speak," Khera said while talking to reporters at a press conference.
Taking a swipe at Modi for making allegations against Rajiv Gandhi who is no more, Khera said has anyone read about former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru saying that his next election will be against Mughal emperor Humayun or Indira Gandhi making her entire campaign against Queen Victoria.
