The war of words between Harsimarat Kaur Badal and Rahul Gandhi took a new turn on Monday as the Union food processing minister once again hit back at the Congress vice president over his remarks on Narendra Modi government engaging in "politics of revenge" over the cancelling of a mega food park in Amethi.
Harsimrat said Rahul was trying to mislead the people, as he was even unaware about the place where the 'Food Park' was to be set up in Amethi. Harsimrat also questioned why it took Rahul 10 months to realise that the project had been cancelled.
Her comments on the Congress leader evoked responses on the social networking site Twitter and mostly praised the Badal bahu for her bold remarks.
One of the twitteratis tagged Rahul Gandhi twitter handle saying if he was getting the taste of women empowerment.
Another user appreciated Harsimrat for her clarity of thought and tweeted
And Harsimrat Kaur Badal does it again. She can simply shoo away 100 Rahul Gandhis with her conviction & clarity of thoughts & speech— Ra_Bies (@Ra_Bies) May 18, 2015
One of the users praised the Badal bahu for her frankness and advised other politicians to follow the same by tweeting:
If all NDA min start being as frank as Harsimrat Kaur Badal in exposing lies of CONgress and Pappu, Cong surely will reduce from 44 to 4.— Devika (@Dayweekaa) May 18, 2015
Giving her Punjabi background the reason behind this comment, one tweeted:
