Rahul Gandhi, Kharge, Supriya Shrinate Said This In Response To PM Modi’s Remarks On Opposition Alliance I.N.D.I.A.

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his remarks on the opposition alliance. Gandhi said, "Call us what you want but we are INDIA and will rebuild the idea of India in Manipur".

Modi had slammed the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) as the most directionless the country has ever had. He said even those with a design to divide the country had names like East India Company and Indian Mujahideen, but people will not be misled by these gimmicks.

Hitting back at Modi, Gandhi tweeted: "Call us whatever you want, Mr Modi. We are INDIA. We will help heal Manipur and wipe the tears of every woman and child. We will bring back love and peace for all her people."

"We will rebuild the idea of India in Manipur," the former Congress chief said.

Cong has always been with Bharat Mata: Kharge

Speaking in the Rajya Sabha, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge said while Congress is talking about Manipur, which is burning, the prime minister is talking about East India Company and saying INDIA means East India Company".

Later, in a tweet, Kharge said, "While we are talking about Manipur, the prime minister, outside the House, is calling 'INDIA' as 'East India Company'. The Congress party has always been with 'Mother India' i.e. 'Bharat Mata'."

Opposition not misguided: Shrinate

On the other hand, Supriya Shrinate, head of the Congress social media and digital platforms, said on Twitter that "While cursing the opposition, PM Modi started calling 'India' names"

Questioning PM Modi's statement, she said, "One thing is clear - you give instructions to your cheap troll army. The opposition is not misguided - you are a victim of moral bankruptcy."

Prime Minister Modi had told a BJP Parliamentary Party meeting that the conduct of the opposition has been such that as if it has decided to stay in the opposition for long.

Modi told the BJP leaders that Indian National Congress and the East India Company were founded by foreigners.

He said people were also using names, such as Indian Mujahideen and Popular Front of India, and their realities were quite different from what they tried to project.
