Lok Sabha elections 2019: ‘Send Rahul to some country with a bomb tied to his body’
State BJP minister Pankaja Munde landed herself in a controversy, while criticising Congress president Rahul Gandhi during a campaign rally in Jalna on Sunday. Munde said Gandhi should have a bomb tied to him and sent to another country for asking proof of surgical strikes.
“They keep asking for proof of surgical strikes. Gandhi should be sent to another country with a bomb tied to his body. Then he would come to know the truth,” the BJP minister said at a rally for state BJP chief Raosaheb Danve, who is contesting from Jalna.
Despite repeated attempts by HT to contact Munde, she was not available for a comment.
The Congress has condemned her remarks. “The cheap thoughts of BJP leaders are being proved once again. We don’t expect anything less than that from them. Those who label a martyr (Karkare) as anti-national are capable of going to any extent. We condemn Munde’s statement,” said Sachin Sawant, Congress spokesperson.
