Rahul Gandhi is modern-day Jinnah, says Assam CM Himanta Biswa

Ground Report | New Delhi: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is being criticized for a remark on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. Himanta Biswa Sarma made objectionable remarks about Rahul Gandhi.

Himanta Biswa Sarma attacks Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, calling him a “modern-day Jinnah”. Sarma had yesterday criticized Mr Gandhi for seeking evidence of a surgical strike by India in Pakistani territory. “Have we ever asked you if you are really the son of Rajiv Gandhi?” He was speaking at a BJP election rally in Uttarakhand. Now, explaining his barbarism against the Congress leader, the Chief Minister of Assam has compared Gandhi to Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan.

Mr Sarma said that Rahul Gandhi’s language and rhetoric was similar to that of Mr Jinnah before 1947. “In a way, Rahul Gandhi is the Jinnah of the modern age,” he added.

Earlier, Sarma had said, “Rahul Gandhi had asked for proof of surgical strike. Hey brother, which father’s son are you, have we ever asked for proof? What right do I have to demand proof from my soldier? Did you not trust Bipin Rawat? When the army said that it did a surgical strike, then assume it has been done. I have never asked for proof that you are Rajiv Gandhi’s son.

On Saturday, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao had asked questions to PM Modi while criticizing the Chief Minister of Assam. KCR had said, “Prime Minister Modi ji, is this the culture of BJP? Is this our Hindu religion? Is this the limit of our country? Your Chief Minister is asking who was born from whose father. My head is bowing in shame. My eyes are getting water. This is not a good thing.”

KCR said, “This is not a good thing for the country. Can your Chief Minister ask about an MP from whose father he was born? Is this our culture? Is this what we have been taught from Mahabharata, Ramayana, Geeta and Vedas? You are dirty people, earning votes in the name of Hindu religion by selling it. Nadda ji, is this our culture? If you believe in religion, then sack that chief minister. Can there be such a Chief Minister in the country? Tolerance also has a limit.

Himanta Biswa Sarma had joined BJP in 2015 from Congress itself. Sarma keeps criticizing Rahul Gandhi on social media every day. In 2018, KCR also called Rahul Gandhi the biggest idiot of the country.

Rashtriya Lok Dal chief Jayant Singh has also criticized Himanta Biswa Sarma’s remarks. Jayant Singh tweeted on Sunday and said, “Assam Chief Minister has used abusive language. From time to time, BJP leaders should wash their faces with Datun!
