NEW DELHI: Congress vice-pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi launched a blis­ter­ing at­tack on Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi on Thurs­day, ac­cus­ing him of throw­ing muck at him and his fam­ily through his cronies and dared the BJP-led gov­ern­ment to put him in jail if found guilty of any wrong­do­ing.

Al­though the com­bat­ive op­po­si­tion leader did not name any­one or any spe­cific al­le­ga­tion, the ref­er­ence was widely seen as a re­but­tal of BJP leader Subra­ma­nian Swamy’s ac­cu­sa­tion a few days ago that Gandhi had de­clared him­self a Bri­tish cit­i­zen in doc­u­ments sub­mit­ted to au­thor­i­ties in Lon­don.

“I want to say one thing, Modiji, you have got agen­cies. Set them af­ter me. Show your 56-inch chest. Get in­ves­ti­ga­tions done. If you find any­thing in six months, put me in jail,” he said at a Youth Congress na­tional con­ven­tion.

The Ame­thi MP’s re­marks came af­ter his party rub­bished the charges and re­leased the doc­u­ments sub­mit­ted to Bri­tish au­thor­i­ties in which Gandhi iden­ti­fied him­self as a cit­i­zen of In­dia. “Stop all this — the muck that you are throw­ing at me, at my fam­ily through your cronies. You are not in op­po­si­tion, you are in gov­ern­ment now,” Gandhi said.
