Bengaluru: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday took a dig at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi over his 'Modi-made disaster' remark and said that the Gandhi scion is yet to make his 'earthquake' like revelations against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"I expected Rahul Gandhi to explode his earthquake statement in Belgaum, but I did not see any of it. Some of Congress spokesperson were claiming on Friday that Rahul Gandhi will speak about it. What happened where is he going to explode that bomb?" BJP leader S. Prakash was quoted as saying by ANI.
Prakash added further and said that making hollow and sensational claims is a very easy task but it is difficult to prove them as is the case with Gandhi.
"A person of his calibre should weigh every word before commenting or claiming something against the Prime Minister. Today, his reputation has been completely tarnished and his image is dented. So, he should bother about the disaster he has created for himself," he said.
At a rally in Belgaum in Karnataka on Saturday, Gandhi dubbed demonetisation as a 'Modi-made disaster' and alleged that Prime Minister Modi would write off Rs eight lakh crore loans of the 50 rich families who funded his election campaign from the money people have deposited in banks after the note ban.
Last week, Rahul had accused the central government of not allowing him to speak in Parliament despite his speech being ready. He had said an "earthquake will come" if he gets the opportunity to speak.
