‘IT’S LIKE PAK’
ANGRY RAHUL SAYS NATION LIVING IN FEAR UNDER BJP ‘DICTATORSHIP’
IT WAS thunderclap Thursday in Karnataka whose reverberations could be heard as far as Chhattisgarh and on Twitter. After losing steam in the Karnataka elections, Congress president Rahul Gandhi landed in poll-bound Chhattisgarh to train his guns at Prime Minister Narendra Modi indirectly referring to him as a dictator and saying that a “murder accused” (Amit Shah) was appointed national president of a political party for the first time”.
Donning an aggressive look at Balbir Singh Juneja Indoor Stadium, in Raipur, Rahul launched a blistering attack on the Modi government by equating the National Democratic Alliance rule to a dictatorship like Pakistan and some African countries where “the Judiciary, the media and even some lawmakers of the BJP are under fear”. “The judiciary is under fear, the press is under fear and even some BJP MPs are under the same fear as they cannot speak a single word before the Prime Minister," he alleged.
Rahul addressed the Jan Swaraj Sammelan by first mentioning the extraordinary press conference of the four Supreme Court Judges held in January saying that “for the first time, four Supreme Court Judges stood before the press and addressed the people of this country, and said we need you”. “These things happen in nations ruled by dictators,” he added indirectly referring to the country turning into a dictatorial regime under Modi.
