Why is Rahul so disturbed if integrity issues of Rajiv Gandhi Govt are questioned: Jaitley
FINANCE Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday wondered why Congress President Rahul Gandhi gets disturbed when integrity issues of his late father Rajiv Gandhi-led Government are raised and the ‘Q’ connection in the Bofors gun-deal is questioned. In a series of tweets, Jaitley said that Rahul Gandhi thinks that “dynast” does not have to answer any question even though he can attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi -- a man of utmost integrity.
Responding to comments of Modi that Rajiv Gandhi’s life ended as bhrashtachari No 1,” Rahul Gandhi had tweeted: “Modi Ji, The battle is over. Your Karma awaits you. Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father won’t protect you. All my love and a huge hug…” Jaitley in his tweet said: “Why is Rahul Gandhi so disturbed if the integrity issues of the Rajiv Gandhi Government are raised? Why did Ottavio Quattrocchi get kickbacks in Bofors?
Who was the ‘Q’ connection? No reply has come.” Modi, addressing a poll rally in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, had targeted the former Prime Minister while attacking Rahul. “Your father (Rajiv Gandhi) was termed Mr Clean by his courtiers, but his life ended as bhrashtachari No 1,” Modi had said. Jaitley said that even former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was also assassinated and yet the Congress is questioned about the Emergency and the Operation Blue Star.
