New Delhi: BJP President Amit Shah on Friday launched a scathing attack against Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi over his “dalali” remark and said he has crossed all limits.
This came a day after Gandhi hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his alleged politicisation of the army’s surgical strikes, and accused Modi of doing “dalali” (profiteering) over the blood shed by Indian soldiers. Shah lambasted political leaders, particularly Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, for “playing politics” over the September 29 surgical strikes.
“By saying ‘dalali’ over soldiers’ blood, Rahul Gandhi has crossed all limits. The remarks reflect the Congress’ mentality,” Shah told at a press conference here.
“I strongly condemn his remarks. They are an insult not only to the brave armed forces and martyrs but the entire country,” he said.
“I want to ask Gandhi does he perceive our soldiers’ blood to be a thing to do ‘dalali’ (trade) with,” asked Shah. Targeting the Delhi Chief Minister, the Bharatiya Janata Party President said, “It was Kejriwal, who started the trend of doubting the surgical strikes and casting aspersion on the bravery of our armed forces.”
“His attempt to demand proof of the surgical strikes has led to the social media ridiculing him as a pro-Pakistani,” Shah said.
