Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday launched a extreme attack on BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying he will never apologise for his rape comment that rocked Parliament on Friday.
“BJP asked me to apologise for telling the truth. I am not Rahul Savarkar. I am Rahul Gandhi. I will not apologise. Nor will anyone from the Congress,” he said at the Bharat Bachao rally at Ramlila Maidan.
In the run-up to the Lok Sabha polls, Rahul Gandhi repeatedly taunted Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, by saying that the freedom fighter had apologised to the British to get out of jail.
At the Ramlila Maidan, Rahul Gandhi said that instead Modi is the one who should apologise for destroying India’s economy.
He said Modi’s insistence on implementing the GST further weakened the economy.
“Manmohan Singh and Chidamabaram warned him against implementing GST without a pilot project. But he was adamant about it,” Gandhi said.
