After Rahul Gandhi dozes off in Lok Sabha, BJP calls him 'Sleeping Prince'
Congress vice president attacked the Modi government over the Una incident in Gujarat.
New Delhi: A day after a video clip showing Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi apparently dozing off momentarily in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday went viral, Bharatiya Janata Party took pot shots saying, Rahul and responsibility don't go with each other.
While mocking at the Gandhi scion, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, “Rahul and relaxation go with each other.”
Further hitting out at Rahul, the BJP leader further said, “Nation calls him the Sleeping Prince.”
Patra took a dig at Rahul after the Congress leader today attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying, "PM Modi talks about Gujarat model, but if anyone here demands education, fights against big corporates, their voice is suppressed."
Addressing a press conference in the national capital, the BJP said, “Want to tell Rahul ji that Ambedkar ji and Nehru ji had different ideologies. Congress has always been against the Dalits, not the BJP.”
BJP's reaction came after the Congress vice president attacked the Modi government over the Una incident in Gujarat.
"It is a fight between two ideologies-on the one hand Gandhiji, Saradar Patel, Nehru and Baba Sahab Amedkar, and on the other hand RSS, Golwalkar and Narendra Modi," Rahul told media after meeting the family members of the Dalit youths who were thrashed by cow vigilantes in Gir-Somnath district.
