Union Minister Anurag Thakur Accuses Rahul Gandhi of Insulting India on Foreign Trips


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, accusing him of insulting the country during his foreign trips. Union Minister Anurag Thakur criticized Gandhi’s recent remarks made in the United States, stating that he consistently disrespects India while attempting to criticize the Prime Minister. Thakur questioned Gandhi’s motives behind his foreign visits, suggesting that mud-slinging is all he has left to do.

Rahul Gandhi, who is currently on a six-day tour of the US, addressed the Indian diaspora in Santa Clara, California, where he claimed that the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) and the BJP have full control over India’s political machinery. Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gandhi made a sarcastic comment implying that Modi would even try to explain the workings of the universe to God himself, causing confusion. Similar remarks made by Gandhi during his tour to the UK earlier this year had already sparked controversy, leading to stalled sessions in Parliament and accusations of insulting the country.

Anurag Thakur further alleged that Rahul Gandhi’s recent comments were driven by his inability to accept the global praise garnered by Prime Minister Modi during his recent three-nation tour. Thakur highlighted the numerous meetings and interactions held by PM Modi with world leaders, where India’s progress was recognized and the country was seen as a promising future. Thakur suggested that Gandhi’s resentment stemmed from his inability to digest such positive international perception, citing instances where world leaders hailed PM Modi as a popular and influential figure.

Thakur also pointed out that when Gandhi speaks of past atrocities against Dalits and backward classes, he conveniently overlooks the fact that those incidents occurred when the Congress party was in power during the 80s. Thakur emphasized that under the current government, India has become the world’s fifth-largest economy and highlighted the stability achieved in recent years.

In response to a question about the security threat to Muslims in India, Rahul Gandhi expressed solidarity by mentioning that other communities such as Sikhs, Christians, Dalits, and Tribals also feel attacked. He drew a parallel between the current situation faced by Muslims and the atrocities committed against Dalits in the 1980s.

The BJP, however, remains firm in its condemnation of Rahul Gandhi, accusing him of insulting the nation, its people, and their Indianness. The party asserts that such behavior will not be accepted by the nation.
