Sam Pitroda, Indian Overseas Congress Chief: Few weeks ago I said something about Balakot, immediately PM started tweeting, head of BJP party went wild, called a press conference.

He said that statement on Balakot created so much unrest that starting from PM Modi to Congress leaders are started questioning him. He added that he only spoke the truth. Questioning the Balakot air strikes Pitroda had said that he doubted the strikes because the New York Times said so. He said that he had been reading the newspaper for 50 years and pays attention to whatever is published in it.
Pitroda had also defended Pakistan on Balakot air strikes and said that the country should not be punished because of a few terrorists. He had also termed the air strikes a ‘wrong approach’. His dislike for PM Modi became public when he compared PM Modi, who is an elected head of a democracy with a dictator like Hitler.
He did not stop at making this illogical comparison between PM Modi and Hitler. He also insulted Indians by calling them monkeys who were still learning to play with toys (referring to mobile phones).
After looking at the statements made by Pitroda one might guess where Rahul Gandhi gets all his wisdom from.
