Bhopal: A BJP leader in Madhya Pradesh has announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh to whoever provides him information on the whereabouts of Congress vice- president Rahul Gandhi. On June 20, Rahul Gandhi had announced on Twitter that he was travelling out of the country on a short visit.
State BJP spokesperson Vijendra Sisodia who is also chairman of the state owned MP Urja Vikas Nigam (renewable energy development corporation) and carries a rank of cabinet minister said that he would personally reward anyone with Rs 1 lakh in case he provided him the name of the country where Rahul Gandhi was in during his foreign tour.
He said when earlier Rahul had gone on a foreign tour, the Congress party had said that he had gone there to reflect and would return re-energized. He said that the Congress should accept that the energy levels of Rahul Gandhi were low which is why he needed another trip to re-energize himself.
State Congress spokesperson Ravi Saxena has reacted sharply to the BJP leader’s announcement. Saxena said that the BJP is suffering from ‘Rahul Phobia’ and added that though Vijendra Sisodia was a senior BJP leader, he seems to be unaware that Rahul Gandhi has SPG protection. ” If Sisodia is so keen to find out where Rahul Gandhi is, he should simply ask the Home Minister for the details and in fact pay him the reward amount,” said Saxena. He added that Sisodia was unhappy with his party at being denied the nomination for MLA and was trying to remain in the news by making such claims.
