PM Modi takes a dig at Congress’ ‘vote-cutter’ admission, mention Rahul’s Backops links in his UP rally

Earlier reports had claimed that Rahul Gandhi's business partner in Backops had benefitted from defence deals under UPA regime.

Speaking at a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Pratapgadh, PM Modi mocked the Congress party over its admission of being a vote share cutter party in Uttar Pradesh. Earlier Priyanka Gandhi and then Rahul Gandhi had admitted that in areas where Congress doesn’t have a strong candidate, it will extend its support to the secular candidate to win the elections and defeat the BJP.

Taking a swipe at the Congress president Rahul Gandhi, PM Modi said, “Those who were dreaming of becoming PM before the elections were reduced to being a ‘vote-cutter’ party in Uttar Pradesh after the first phase of elections got over.” Modi contended that the dispute between Congress and the Samajwadi Party is merely a drama. Attacking the clandestine understanding between the Congress party and the SP, he asserted that their undeclared alliance will seek to undermine the authority of BSP chief Mayawati.

In an apparent reference to Congress leader Shatrughan Sinha campaigning for his wife Poonam Sinha who is an SP candidate, PM Modi said, “Congress leaders are happily sharing stages with Samajwadi Party in their rallies, these people have so cunningly betrayed Behenji that she is unable to perceive it.”

PM Modi also raised the murky links between Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi with Backops UK. As per the India Today report, Ulrik Mcknight, who was 35% co-owner of Backops UK, in which Rahul Gandhi owned a majority 65% equity between 2003 and 2009 before the firm was wound up, later went on to acquire offset contracts from French defence supplier Naval Group against Scorpene submarines in 2011, when UPA was in power.

The report also states that Rahul’s sister Priyanka also served as the co-director of Backops Services Private Limited.
