New Delhi, Dec 20: Taking a swipe at Sonia and Rahul Gandhi over their attack on the government, BJP has said it seemed from their remarks that they were not “accused in a case of corruption” but some “freedom fighters” as the party asked Congress to not politicise a court matter.
Soon after the Congress chief launched a scathing attack on the Modi government for targeting them after she and her son got bail from a court in National Herald case, BJP hit back saying they were “fighting for corruption in a shameful manner” by doing “drama” on road.
“We do not want to comment on what happened inside the court but we will like to speak on comments made and drama done outside. There is always fight against corruption but this is the first time in the country’s history that we can see this fight for corruption, that too in a very shameful manner,” Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said on Saturday.
Naqvi said the National Herald matter was totally about Congress and Gandhis were summoned by court and not BJP headquarters.
Claiming that these efforts will boomerang on Congress, he took a dig at Sonia Gandhi over her remarks that they will not be “scared”, saying the opposition party has no reason to be scared and should not scare the country as well.
