“A tight slap on the Yuvraj of Congress”: BJP to Rahul Gandhi on the White House statement on Indian democracy

On the White House statement on Indian democracy yesterday, BJP took a dig at Rahul Gandhi calling it a tight slap on the “Yuvraj” of the Congress. 

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi during his six-day visit to the US made a statement that Indian democracy is a global public good and its collapse will have an impact on the world. 

BJP spokesperson, Syed Jafar Islam said it is ironic that while he (Rahul Gandhi) shamelessly continues to criticise Indian democracy during his US visit, the White House says India is a vibrant democracy. 

He was referring to the statement of John Kirby who is a coordinator for strategic communication at the national security council in the White House. When asked about the concern over Indian democracy, Kirby said that India is a vibrant democracy.

“India is a vibrant democracy. Anybody that, you know, happens to go to New Delhi can see that for themselves,” said John Kirby.

“Look, we never shy away. And you can do that with friends. You’re supposed to do that with friends. You never shy away from expressing concerns that we might have with anyone around the world. But this (State) visit is really about advancing what is now and what we hope will be a deeper, stronger partnership and friendship going forward,” Kirby said in response to a question.

On June 2 during his six-day visit to the US, congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that Indian democracy is a global public good and its collapse will have an impact on the world. 

“It’s our job, it’s our business, and it’s our work to fight the battle for democracy in India. “And it’s something that we understand, we accept, and we do,” said Rahul Gandhi during his US visit 

BJP president, J P Nadda attacked Mr Gandhi on his statement saying he not running any “shop of love” but opened a “mega shopping mall of hatred”.

Prime Minister Modi will visit the US for a state visit later this Month.
