AAP slams Rahul Gandhi for ‘half-hearted attack’ on Modi


New Delhi: AAP today slammed Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi for his “half-hearted attacks” against Narendra Modi’s links with industrialist Gautam Adani and questioned his silence on “favours” given to Reliance Industries by the UPA government.

“More than two months after the Aam Aadmi Party had revealed the largescale favours given by the Modi government of Gujarat to the Adani group, Gandhi is now speaking about it, but is totally silent on his own UPA government’s undue favours to the Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) of Mukesh Ambani,” AAP said in a statement.

“It is equally surprising that the BJP is now talking about the illegal land deals of Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of the Congress President Sonia Gandhi, more than 18 months after the AAP had exposed Vadra’s shady deals in Haryana and Rajasthan, but the BJP is completely silent on whether its own state government of Rajasthan will probe the allegations against Vadra,” it added.

The party has alleged that both the leaders have been attacking each other, but not focussing on the real issues.

“Behind the pointless sound and fury of the selective shadow boxing between the Congress and the BJP lies their real agenda of not allowing the election campaign to focus on real issues concerning the people,” the statement added.
