Newdelhi:9/10/17:Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah. The attack by the Gandhi scion came amid a war of words between the BJP and the Congress over an article published on a website.
Taking a jibe over PM Modi’s claim of being a ‘chowkidar’ during the run up to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi asked: “Aap chowkidar thein ya bhaagidaar?”
He also used the word “Shah-zada”, which is often used by the BJP to target the Congress vice president. This comes a day after Rahul Gandhi had tweeted, “We finally found the only beneficiary of Demonetisation. It’s not the RBI, the poor or the farmers. It’s the Shah-in-Shah of Demo. Jai Amit.”
Union Minister Piyush Goyal asserted that there was no wrongdoing on the part of Jay Shah. He said that the ruling party had gone on the offensive over the issue.
