Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has reached his parliamentary constituency Wayanad (Kerala) for the first time after the membership of the Lok Sabha has restored.
Addressing a public meeting in Wayanad on Saturday, Rahul Gandhi said that there are thousands of people in Manipur who have suffered violence. Someone’s house has been burnt, someone’s sister has been raped, and someone’s brother and parents have been killed. It is as if someone has thrown kerosene all over Manipur and set it on fire.
Rahul Gandhi said that I went to Manipur some time ago. I have been in politics for 19 years and I have never experienced anything like what I experienced in Manipur.
Further targeting PM Modi said that there is blood everywhere in Manipur, murder is happening everywhere, this is the situation in Manipur and PM spoke for 2 hours, 13 minutes in the parliament but he Spoke on Manipur for two minutes, he laughed and joked. His cabinet was laughing, joking.
Accusing PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi said that you (PM) speak for two minutes about the murder of ‘Bharat Mata’ (Manipur). How can you disrespect the idea of India? Why didn’t you go there? Why didn’t you try to stop the violence? Because you are not a nationalist. Anyone who kills the idea of India cannot be a nationalist.
In a vehement attack, he said that BJP and RSS don’t understand what is family? They don’t understand that the more they try to separate you and me, the closer we get. They feel that if we disqualify Rahul Gandhi, their relationship with Wayanad will break. If you disqualify Rahul Gandhi, his relationship with Wayanad will become stronger.
