Taking a potshot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over commenting on the Capitol Hill violence in the US and maintaining “silence” on the farmers protest, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that the former has a “lack of understanding of fundamentals”.
“I remember the Prime Minister saying ”Iss baar Trump sarkar”…As a PM of the country, you do not do something like that because you are disrespecting the people of the United States. This is their choice, not yours. So, there is a lack of understanding of fundamentals. Now, of course, Trump lost,” replied Mr Gandhi on being asked about PM Modi’s reaction to Capitol Hill riots and farmers” protest.
After the Capitol Hill violence, the Prime Minister tweeted: “Distressed to see news about rioting and violence in Washington DC. Orderly and peaceful transfer of power must continue. The democratic process cannot be allowed to be subverted through unlawful protests.”
The Wayand MP further lashed out at the central government over three farm laws stating that they were designed to destroy Indian agriculture. He said there is a tragedy unfolding in the country and alleged that India is now owned by 4-5 people.
