Cong too has many skeletons lying in its cupboard: hits back BJP
BJP on Friday warned Congress against raking up issues relating to the personal life of Narendra Modi and said it also knows many ‘secrets’ of the Nehru-Gandhi family which they do not want to disclose.
After Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi raked up the issue of Modi’s marriage to attack BJP, the opposition party said raising such issues will ‘cost Congress heavily and boomerang’. ‘Why are they going into personal things? People want an answer to the country’s problems. He (Rahul) can talk about it later and hold a panchayat.
‘It will cost Congress heavily. Don’t get into these things, it will boomerang,’ BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu said. Condemning the ‘interference’ in Modi’s life, another BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said in Varanasi that it was a serious issue and it applied to Rahul Gandhi too though he didn’t prefer interfering in anyone’s personal life. ‘I know many secrets of Gandhi family too from Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv but do not want to disclose them,’ he said. ‘Modi was married at a young age and soon after his marriage he joined RSS and became pracharak...on this issue, his brother has written a letter clarifying the matter...Modi had never said that he was single,’ Prasad said.
