Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his ‘cloud theory’ saying he’ s on people’s radar. The Congress leader further said that Modi promised a corruption-free government but went ahead and perpetrated a ‘Rs 30,000 crore Rafale scam’. PM Modi had recently made a statement about IAF aircrafts evading Pakistan radars during the Balakot air strike due to the “cloudy weather”.
Priyanka, while addressing the people at a roadshow in Indore’s Rajwada Chowk, said “Modi is such a defence expert that he himself decided weather is cloudy, it won’t come on the radar. But he has come on the radar. Be it rain or sunlight, people have understood the reality of their politics”. She also questioned his knowledge on the way BJP-led Union government gave Rafale deal contract to Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defence.
She further alleged that the prime minister had no time for the poor and the one time she saw a photograph of him holding a child in his arms, it turned out to be that of BJP chief Amit Shah’s grandchild and not of some ordinary citizen.
It was in an interview aired on Saturday, Modi had claimed that he suggested the Indian Air Forces (IAF) that clouds and rain can help fighter jets evade Pakistani radar during Balakot air strikes. Soon after the interview, opposition parties have mocked him and posted funny memes on his statements.
