Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday attacked Congress president Rahul Gandhi hours after he stated that Sam Pitroda should be “ashamed” for his comment on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Stinging the Congress president, the prime minister stated, “You pretended to scold your mentor for what? Because he publicly said what had always been in Congress’s heart? It’s you who should be ashamed.”
Addressing an election rally in Punjab’s Fatehgarh Sahib, Rahul Gandhi had said, “What Sam Pitroda said about 1984 is absolutely wrong and he should apologize to the nation for it. I told him this over the phone, I told him what he said was wrong, he should be ashamed and apologize publicly.”
