There is no end to gaffes by Rahul Gandhi. On a day after a Bhopal court had directed police to FIR against Congress leaders Kamal Nath, Digvijay Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindiya on the accusation of submitting forged documents in the Vyapam Scam case, Rahul Gandhi mentioned the Vyapam to attack BJP. Speaking at a rally in Chitrakoot, Rahul Gandhi took on the Madhya Pradesh government, he said that the state is number one in scams, alleging that Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Chauhan has given the biggest scam in India, and the Vyapam scam has damaged the education system of the state from inside.
Perhaps he is not aware that CBI has given clean chit to Chauhan, and now his own party leaders are facing the law for allegations of producing fake evidence to implicate the MP CM in the case. Not only that, Madhya Pradesh Congress spokesperson KK Mishra was awarded a jail sentence of two years in a defamation case filed by MP CM, for his comments alleging Chauhan’s link with the scam.
The only allegation against BJP that Congress has is that the CM had tampered with an Excel sheet which was recovered from a computer during the investigations in the scam. But the Forensic Science Laboratory has clarified that there was no tampering with the data, and the court had already rejected Congress claim. But still, Congress was making the same allegations, which has resulted in FIR against its top 3 leaders in the state.
Not just that, despite the clarification from all sides that the share of Reliance in Rafale’s offset business is no more than ₹700 crore, he continued with the lie that Modi has gifted his friend ₹30000 crore. He also lied about the Sardar Patel’s statue being ‘made in China’, despite the fact that it has been debunked by OpIndia back in October 2015 itself.
Before the rally, Rahul Gandhi visited Kamtanath temple, continuing with party’s soft-Hindutva strategy of ‘temple run’ ahead of MP elections.
