Citing a statement given by a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader years ago, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Monday attacked the NDA government and asked whether any saffron party leader would now send bangles to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Following a similar incident, current Union Minister Smriti Irani had offered bangles to former prime minister Manmohan Singh during the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime. “When a similar incident took place during the UPA regime, a BJP MP wanted to gift bangles to the then prime minister. I would like to ask her that will she now do the same and gift bangles to Prime Minister Modi after this mutilation,” Kapil Sibal was quoted as saying by ANI. In 2013, Irani, while delivering a speech in Indore during the UPA regime, had said that she would send “bangles” to then prime minister Manmohan Singh after a terrorist attack on the Indian Army. Delivering a speech, Irani had alleged that the then central government had not been doing anything to safeguard the borders even after “10 attackers came and attacked us”
