Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, on Thursday, accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of “Khoon ki Dalali”, over the death of Indian soldiers. Gandhi, addressing a rally which marked the end of his month-long ‘Deoria to Delhi kisan yatra’, said that the Modi government was hiding behind the sacrifice of the soldiers. He said that the BJP-led government had failed to deliver on its promises, that it had made during the 2014 general elections.
Taking a jibe at the surgical strikes, Gandhi accused Modi of having the blood of soldiers on his hands. “Humare jawan hain, jinho ne khoon diya hai,jinho ne surgical strike kiya, unke khoon ke peeche aap chhupe huye ho, unki aap dalali kar he ho”, Gandhi said. He said that the Modi government has only achieved two things so far- profiteering from surgical strikes and creating a divide among Indian citizens. He accused the Indian government of hiding behind the blood of martyrs.
Twiterratis did not take kindly to this comment of Rahul Gandhi, and expressed their anger and ridiculed him on the social networking site. Gandhi’s statement is the second in line after Sonia Gandhi had earlier called Prime Minister Narendra Modi, “Maut ka Saudagar.”
You can’t even get angry with Rahul Gandhi because we know he isn’t smart enough to come up with a phrase’ Khoon ki Dalali’

We already have Arvind kejriwal and Rahul Gandhi. If we convince Bilawal bhutto to take Indian passport we will have our own three stooges.

While Rahul Gandhi also asked the Prime Minister to do his duty and provide increments to Indian military in the 7th pay commission, and help the poor farmers of India, his “Khoon ka dalal” statement has not been taken kindly by the general public.
