Ravi Shankar Prasad reacts sharply to Rahul Gandhi’s Bahrain speech

Union Minister of Law and Justice of India Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday (January 9) launched a blistering attack on Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Claiming that Rahul Gandhi’s Bahrain speech was targeted at spreading hatred and malice, he cross-questioned Rahul on the issue of Triple Talaq, asking him if his party’s stand was a measure to spread love. He said, “The party that cannot take a stand on women is trying to teach us on foreign soil.” He added that he is not only surprised but also amused at the kind of statements being made by the president of the Congress party. Attacking the Congress party on the issue of Triple Talaq he asked Rahul Gandhi as to why his party has a dual stand on Triple Talaq. Prasad also quoted the infamous Shah Bano case of 1984 and blamed the Congress of appeasement politics.

Prasad responded sharply to Rahul Gandhi’s remark of India slowing down on many fronts. He said that Rahul Gandhi’s speech shows that he or his associates haven’t done their homework (or ground research). He added that Rahul Gandhi is helping people like Umar Khalid, who have openly raised slogans of dividing India. Concluding the press conference, he said that attempt by Rahul Gandhi to “malign” India’s image on the foreign soil is highly condemnable.

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, on Monday, made his case before the Indians residing in Bahrain. In an event attended by the delegates of 50 countries, he said, “I am here to tell you what you mean to our country, that you’re important, to tell you there is a serious problem at home, to tell you that you’re part of the solution and that I am here to build a bridge between wherever you are in the world and home.” He accused the government of dividing people on the basis of caste and religion and said it was channeling the fear of jobless young people into “hatred between communities”.

    It is painful that Rahul Gandhi has gone Behrain to tell foreign country heads that India is weak , government is bad and there is no scope for growth. He is campaigning against our country. He is trying to defame India and Indians . Is there any other country in the world whose leader of opposition party goes abroad to criticise his own country government? I have seen no leader of opposition from foreign country coming to campaign in India and tell Indians that their government is not good. What Rahul Gandhi is doing is clear cut marketing against the interest of Indian and India. He is maligning good image created by our PM Mr Modi and his team. If this type of marketing against the interest of India is allowed to continue , there is no doubt that probable investors will stop or go slow in investing in India and thus jeopardise our growth potential. I think this is a bad signal for democracy .It is just misuse of freedom of speech . No other country will allow such campaign
