Kharagpur: Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Kharagpur, West Bengal adddressed in a rally and said that our President says Trinamool Congress’ T stands for Tushtikaran, M stands for Mafia, C is for Congress/Corruption. Congress means Corruption.
Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also added that: I feel that there is a ‘syndicate morcha’ in Trinamool Congress. Didi runs a ‘tolabaji’ here through Syndicate Morcha, that is why police can’t do anything in West Bengal. There is Narada-Saradha here.
Defence Minister and BJP leader Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday said Congress President Rahul Gandhi has lost his credibility after he expressed regret over his remarks on the Supreme Court’s order in the Rafale jet deal.
The apex court had asked the Congress President to respond on his remarks made last week wherein had attributed his “Chowkidar chor hai” remarks to the top court. Gandhi on Monday accepted that the “court never said these words.”
Addressing a press conference, Sitharaman said the Congress had diluted its stand on national security after its leader P. Chidambaram sought to change India’s behaviour toward Pakistan to normalize ties.
Coming down heavily on Gandhi, the Defence Minister said the regret expressed by him was done as part of “political convenience” and to avoid “contempt of court”.
“It was done to escape the wrath of the court…I would definitely say that it is a matter of credibility which is affected badly when people in public life are pushed to the circumstances to have to regret having said something based on untruth,” she said.
“Rahul Gandhi’s credibility has taken a beating. He keeps on repeating untruths. It is a matter of grief.” Sitharaman said she felt “sorry” that the Congress was dependent on “falsehood”.
