New Delhi: BJP chief Amit Shah on Saturday took a jibe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi, accusing him of speaking on the lines of Pakistan and asked Rahul whether he was trying to forge an international alliance in the name of "Modi Hatao".
Shah said in a tweet:
Rahul Gandhi says ‘Modi Hatao’
Pakistan says ‘Modi Hatao’
Now Pakistan also supports Rahul Gandhi’s baseless allegations against PM Modi.

The BJP president's remarks came amid a political war with Rahul Gandhi terming Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "thief" and "corrupt" in the Rafale deal, as the BJP hit back saying the Gandhi family is out on bail and is the "source of all corruption in the country". Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, earlier, accused Rahul of playing into the hands of Pakistan. Congress Spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala was quick to react to Shah's attack, saying pseudo-nationalism was BJP's old ploy. He tweeted:
Amit Shahji, Congress doesn’t need certificates from traitors of freedom movement. Pl brush up ur knowledge - Congress taught befitting lessons to Pak in 1947, 1965 & 1971. U only invoke Pak when answerless on issues of corruption. https://t.co/8RvLyAkmrx — Randeep Singh Surjewala (@rssurjewala) September 22, 2018
