Union Minister Smriti Irani has slammed Congress Chief Mallikarjun Kharge over his recent remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stating that Kharge’s statement reflects the “vile politics” of the Congress, particularly the Gandhi family.
Speaking to the media, Irani stated that Kharge’s clarification that he was attacking BJP’s ideology and not the Prime Minister himself was unacceptable, and asked whether Kharge was insinuating that he was attacking India instead.
Irani’s comments come after Kharge stated that his recent comments about PM Modi were a reflection of what the Gandhi family feels about him. Kharge later issued a clarification stating that he was attacking the BJP’s ideology of putting the nation first.
However, Irani did not accept Kharge’s clarification, stating that it was clear that the Congress leader was attacking the Prime Minister and that his comments were a reflection of the “vile politics” of the Gandhi family.
Irani also criticized Congress for their divisive politics, stating that they were trying to divide the country on the basis of religion and caste. She further stated that the BJP’s ideology of putting the nation first was being attacked by Congress, who were trying to promote their own narrow interests.
In conclusion, Irani’s criticism of Kharge’s remarks reflects the ongoing political tensions between the Congress and the BJP, and highlights the divisive nature of Indian politics.
