“In an interview to a magazine in 2019, Gandhi in his own words had claimed that Modi’s greatest strength is his image and that he would will rip his image apart,” Irani said.
“The political psychosis of Rahul Gandhi is at full display. He abused and accused Modi in Parliament but could not verify his own statement by authenticating it with his own signature,” she said.
Such is the political frustration of Gandhi that a promise he made could not be fructified and hence, he continues with his tirade against Modi, the BJP leader said.
“So Rahul Gandhi your promise made to a magazine editor that you will rip Modi’s image apart is a promise that shall remain unfulfilled because Narendra Modi’s greatest strength is the people of India,” Irani said.
Referring to his conviction and sentencing in a criminal defamation case, she said that “Rahul Gandhi could not develop the humility to beg for the forgiveness of the OBC community in our country is just another manifestation of a political arrogance called the Gandhi family”.
Following his conviction and two-year sentencing in the case by a Surat court over his “Modi surname” remark on March 23, Gandhi was disqualified as a member of Lok Sabha.
