Cong launch­ing fake cam­paigns: Jait­ley

‘Time to pro­tect na­tion from in­sti­tu­tion wreck­ers’

The Free Press Journal - - NATION - AGEN­CIES /

We an­a­lyse Rahul Gandhi's two speeches on Rafale, they are based on a per­sonal ha­tred for the PM em­a­nat­ing from envy. A failed stu­dent al­ways hates the class top­per.

—ARUN JAIT­LEY Union Min­is­ter

Ac­cus­ing the Con­gress party of launch­ing 'fake cam­paigns' against the de­fence forces, ju­di­ciary and Re­serve Bank, Union Min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley Sun­day said it is time to pro­tect the coun­try as well as its in­sti­tu­tions from 'in­sti­tu­tion wreck­ers'.

In a hard-hit­ting Face­book post, the min­is­ter re­called how the Con­gress-led gov­ern­ments used to in­ter­fere with in­sti­tu­tions like the RBI, ju­di­ciary and the Cen­tral CBI.

Jait­ley said in West Ben­gal, democ­racy is se­ri­ously un­der peril.

"BJP lead­ers can't land, pub­lic meet­ings are be­ing pre­vented and the Rath Ya­tra was dis­al­lowed. The Con­gress Party's stand on mul­ti­ple is­sues is self-con­tra­dic­tory. It slaugh­ters a cow be­fore the cam­eras in Ker­ala, and in­vokes the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Act against the cow killers in Mad­hya Pradesh," he said.

"The Con­gress aligned with the Maoist in the re­cent Ch­hat­tis­garh elec­tions. Rahul Gandhi stood shoul­der to shoul­der with the 'Tukde Tukde' gang at the Jawa­har­lal Nehru Uni­ver­sity," Jait­ley said.

He said these 'in­sti­tu­tion pro­tec­tors' sup­port the le­git­imis­ing of il­le­gal in­fil­tra­tors into In­dia. They read­ily jump to the sup­port of those who want to dis­mem­ber the coun­try, he said.

Ac­cus­ing Con­gress Pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi of stalling func­tion­ing of Par­lia­ment, Jait­ley said his two speeches on Rafale are based on a per­sonal ha­tred for the Prime Min­is­ter em­a­nat­ing from envy.
