Narendra Modi is like Mogambo, has created cobweb to loot armed forces, says Rahul Gandhi
Congress president Rahul Gandhi shared a news report alleging that the Rafale deal was against the defence ministry's interests.
New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that he created a cobweb just like the Bollywood villain Mogambo to "loot" the armed forces and that the Rafale scam is one of his many adventures which will be exposed soon.
Rahul shared a news report alleging that the Rafale deal was against the defence ministry's interests.
"The Rafale scam is only a glimpse of Modiji's adventures. To loot the armed forces, he created a cobweb just like Mogambo of selected officers, ministers and industrialists. The threads of this cobweb to make the armed forces hollow from inside are connected to Modiji and his industrialist friends. Now many masks would be exposed," he said in a tweet in Hindi.
The Congress party and its chief have launched an offensive on Modi and his government, alleging corruption and favouritism in the Rs 58,000-crore fighter jet deal for purchase of 36 Rafale aircraft from France's Dassault Aviation, a charge the government has strongly denied.
Mogambo, essayed by Amrish Puri, was the villain in the 1987 Hindi film 'Mr India'.
In response to a Twitter user's appreciation post for Gandhi, Agnihotri wrote, "I like the ease with which he wears warm jackets indoors and goes without jacket outdoors. Also, ease with which he drinks chai outdoors and 5 course meal indoors. Easy drama. Easy followers. Good one."
In every way, Narendra Modi gains from this needless controversy before the nine state elections this year and the general election next year. And a master politician like him will not let this opportunity for his opponents to malign themselves go waste
The roadshow, previously planned for Tuesday, will now be held today from Patel Chowk to Parliament Street after a change in the party's schedule
