Kashmir is facing challenges because of Nehru-Gandhi family: Smriti IraniJuly 13, 2017 00:35
Union Textile Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday tore into Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for holding Prime Minister Narendra Modi responsible for Amarnath terror attack and said history stands evidence that the challenges of Kashmir have been gifted by Nehru-Gandhi family.
"History has evidence that when it comes to challenges with regard to Kashmir, those have been given out to country, courtesy Nehru-Gandhi family," Irani told ANI.
She said Rahul's comment is an example of cheap politics, as he chose to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi when the nation stands united and is fighting a crucial war against terrorism.
"This kind of comment from Rahul after returning from holiday indicates that he will not leave any single opportunity to do politics," she said.
Further stressing on the same, Irani said such comments are boosting the morale of the terrorists and is an effort to demotivate the people fighting against the terrorists.
"Gandhi is speaking about personal gain in his tweet. There are few questions he needs to answer, that when Congress representative Mani Shanker Aiyar went to Pakistan and requested for help to remove Prime Minister Modi's government, was that for personal gain or was a political strategy?" she asked.
