Sonia Gandhi reacts to Modi's barbs, says why is PM silent on Vyapam, Lalit Modi

Rae Bareli: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday reacted sharply to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's barbs at her, questioning why he is silent on External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj as well as chief ministers of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh who are facing serious allegations.

"What about the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh's case, the foreign minister's case and Rajasthan chief minister's case? Why did he not have a word to say about these things," Gandhi questioned when asked to comment on Modi's attack.

Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje are facing allegations of helping former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi who is being investigated in a money laundering case. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is facing allegations in Vyapam scam.

Earlier in the day, PM Modi hit out at Gandhi for her "hawabaazi" (empty talk) comment, alleging that "hawalabaaz (scamsters) are unnerved" due to the tough stance of the government on black money.

Addressing BJP workers in Bhopal, Modi said Congress was resorting to "disruptive tactics" as it was not being able to come to terms with its defeat in 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Gandhi had on Tuesday said that the Prime Minister has been "reduced to unedifying flip flops" and most of his poll promises were nothing more than "hawabaazi" (empty talk)

Gandhi, who was on a two-day visit of her Rae Bareli Lok Sabha constituency, met locals today and visited Congress workers who have lost members of their families recently and offered condolences.
