India is touching new heights under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi…instead of discussing these things, Rahul Gandhi is discussing the time when atrocities were committed on the poor people, minorities were killed during their government,” Thakur said. “And when talking about the 80s, he probably forgot who was in power then. It was their (Congress) government when the Sikhs were killed. Who was the Chief Minister then'” he questioned.
Who are the people behind these programs, who provides these platforms where anti-India words are spoken’ These are the questions that were asked during his previous yatra. And this yatra has also started with insult to India,” he further said. The minister went after Rahul Gandhi for his controversial statements during the Congress leader’s ‘Mohabbat Ki Dukaan’ event in Santa Clara in the US where he mocked PM Narendra Modi and accused him of staging a ‘drama’ to distract people from more serious issues facing the nation. However, Thakur accused the former MP for insulting India over incidents that took place during the previous Congress governments.
