Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday criticised Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for his ‘dalali’ remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I strongly condemn what Rahul Gandhi said about our jawans, this is a matter in which we all need to stand united,” Arvind Kejriwal said.
Rahul Gandhi, upon returning from his Kisan Yatra had taken a dig at Narendra Modi saying that the Prime Minister is doing ‘dalali'(trade) of the Indian Army soldiers. The Congress VP also claimed that Modi hides behind the blood of our soldiers.
Addressing a rally at the Jantar Mantar here at the end of his Kisan Yatra across election-bound Uttar Pradesh, he also accused Modi of not fulfilling his promises to people made during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
“Unki dalali kar rahe ho… Yeh bilkul ghalat hai… Hindustan ki sena ne Hindustan ka kaam kiya, aap apna kaam keejiye… (You are trading on them. This is totally wrong… The Indian Army did its job for India, you do your work),” he thundered.
Rahul went on for quite a while and added, “Modiji has been able to do two things – one making two Indians fight between each other and to divide the nation. He made people fight among each other in all states. In Uttar Pradesh, he made the Hindus and the Muslims fight among each other.”
To this, the Delhi CM said, “Such words (dalali) should not have been used by Rahul Gandhi. These are the times for us unite & stand along army.”
