A day after ex-Pakistan minister Rehman Malik and present I&B Minister Fawad Hussain came out in support of Rahul Gandhi, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has questioned the Congress President if Rahul Gandhi and Pakistan are 'conspiring together' to outset PM Modi from his position.
In a fiery press conference on Monday, Sambit Patra, spokesperson of BJP, said, "What is it that Congress & Pakistan have in common? The commonality is the frustration of both & their only aim is to somehow remove Modi Ji from Indian polity".
BJP Spokesperson Dr. Sambit Patra cited Amit Shah and asked,"Is there an international alliance against PM Modi?"
He then listed down the tweets by Pakistani Minister and said:
"The first tweet is from Pakistan's I&B Minister. He took to Twitter on 22nd September 2018 and attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and India. He then quotes Rahul Gandhi Tweets. Earlier, Rahul Gandhi wrote in his tweet "The PM and Anil Ambani jointly carried out a One Hundred & Thirty Thousand Crore, SURGICAL STRIKE on the Indian Defence". forces. This is not only demeaning the surgical strike on Pakistan but also it's a mockery of the army and none other than by our own Indian men. This is now being used by Pakistan Ministers to target India".
Talking about Ex-Pakistan Minister Rehman Malik, he said:
"Rehman Malik wrote that Rahul Gandhi will be next Prime Minister. He tweeted this on 23rd September 2018. Pakistan Ministers are now campaigning for Pakistan. Unfortunately even Imran Khan termed PM Modi as a 'small man'. Pakistan wants Rahul Gandhi to lead. Those who favours corruption want Rahul Gandhi to move ahead. Dynasts want Rahul Gandhi to become PM. Those who want to do politics wants him to be PM. However, Dalit and poor want PM Modi to come into power again in 2019. Is this thread of commonality between cong and Pakistan a mere coincidence?"
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi's relentless attack on PM Narendra Modi over the Rafale deal was used by a Pakistani minister to attack the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP). The Congress President had spoken against BJP and PM Modi over the deal, claiming that they had negotiated and changed it in favor of Anil Ambani's Reliance. And his tirade on Twitter was picked up by Pakistan minister Fawad Hussain, who has used Rahul's couple of tweets as a reference to attack the BJP government.
The Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting posted a message on the social media website, which read, "These tweets explain BJP led Tirade against Pakistan, Apni Jang Khud Lado #RafaelDeal"
A day after Fawad Hussain's tweet, Ex-Pakistan Minister also took to Twitter and wrote:
