Rajasthan Youth Congress President and Dungarpur MLA made derogatory remarks while addressing a crowd during a protest organized by the party against the “snoopgate” allegations on the Modi government. Ganesh Ghogra was caught on camera saying, “It is time to beat Prime Minister Modi and (uses an abusive word) Home Minister Amit Shah with shoes.”
The senior Congress leader said, “The inflation and prices of fuel which are at an all-time high have made the life of a common man miserable. Our personal talks are also being taped (tapped). Such misdeeds can only be done by Modiji and (Amit Shah).”
As per reports, while the Youth Congress leader was using such words, senior Congress leader RPCC chief Govind Singh Dotasara was present.
It is imperative to note that Rajasthan is one of the states that charge the highest rates of VAT on fuel prices as per data submitted by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas to Parliament on July 19. This further causes the fuel rates to inflate said the report.
