New Delhi: The BJP on Satur day said that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s stand about top industrialists of the country was the height of hypocrisy as he considers it a ” sell-out ‘ when they set up an industry in a non – Congress-ruled state but hails it as an investment when they come to a Congress-ruled state.
The BJP reacted after Rahul Gandhi clarified his stand on Adani group investment in Rajasthan. Rahul Gandhi said that Gautam Adani’s proposal of Rs 60,000 crore for Rajas was one no CM could re-fuse. ” Rahul Gandhi’s remarks are the height of hypocrisy he welcomes if the industrial ists invest in the two Congress-ruled states but dub it a sell-out if investments are in other states, ” BJP IT department head Amit Malviya.
Earlier, Malviya had tweeted, ” In another sign of revolt and brewing discontent against the Gandhis, Rajas than CM Ashok Gehlot invites Gautam Adani for the investor summit. He is given a seat right next to the CM. This is an open message to Rahul Gandhi, who doesn’t tire of berating AdaniAmbani, to back off.
BJP spokesperson Sheh zad Poonawala tweeted , ” Ra hul ji ke daant- khane ke alag dikhane ke alag ? Will abuse Indian businessmen but when the same groups invest in Rajasthan it is all good? Hypocrisy or is Gehlot snubbing Gand his? Will Rahul Gandhi now attack his government in Rajasthan? ” Lok Sabha MP from Jaipur ( rural ) and former Union minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore hit out at both Rahul and Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot, saying in a tweet, ” On one hand, Rahul Gandhi abuses industrial ists like Adani Ji day and night and impedes the nation’s economic development. On the other, his lieutenant in Rajasthan, who set up an industry of violence, kidnapping, hooliganism, and extremism in four years, is embracing him. “
Deputy leader of the opposition in Rajasthan Rajendra Rathore said, ” Rahul Gandhi’s Congress party which constantly curses the central government in the name of Adani is now being kind to him. The head of Rajasthan, Ashok Geh lot is providing valuable land to the Adani group at concessional rates. ”
