Taunting Rahul Gandhi for seeking a report card from the NDA government, BJP President Amit Shah on Thursday said ‘Rahulbaba’ cannot see the changes due to his ‘Italian spectacles’ and should first explain the alleged scams worth Rs. 12 lakh crore during the UPA rule.
Mr Shah said the report card of the National Democratic Alliance government was very long and the “biggest achievement” was that there was not a single allegation of corruption against the BJP government.
In a pep-talk with state BJP workers at south Gujarat’s Vyara town, Mr Shah also said though the situation on India-Pakistan border has “changed” after PM Modi took over, Mr Gandhi, whom he referred as “Rahulbaba”, could not see it due to the “Italian spectacles” he is wearing.
“Few days back, Rahulbaba said in his speech that what Modi government did in its two-and-half years of tenure. Rahulbaba, I am having that report card, but I don’t want to share with you because it is very long. The biggest achievement is that you cannot level a single allegation of corruption against the BJP government,” he said.
“People remember that scams worth Rs. 12 lakh crore emerged during the 10 years of past Congress rule. Rahulbaba, don’t ask for our report card, because people have been asking you about what happened to that money? You first need to give explanation to the people of where that money has gone,” the senior BJP leader said.
Addressing a large gathering of party workers from all over south Gujarat region, Mr Shah further demanded Congress’s report card in Gujarat, where it was in power for almost 40 years before the BJP took over in 1995.
