Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday attacked the Narendra Modi government for targeting opposition leaders including RJD leader Lalu Prasad using the CBI to “intimidate and harass them” and asked who the next target will be.
“The BJP government uses the CBI to target key opposition politicians to intimidate and harass them.Now, a news report reveals how the CBI was pressured to file a case against @laluprasadrjd, ignoring the advice of its own legal team. Who will Modiji (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) target next?” tweeted Gandhi adding a hashtag: #VendettaPolitics.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said his party unequivocally condemns any act of political vendetta indulged by the Modi government.
“Now that the BJP has only few months left in power, it should count its days and be ready to face the people’s wrath,” he said, adding that “denigrating the credibility of institutions by misusing them to target political opponents is the sole agenda of the Modi government”.
