Sambit Patra on behalf of BJP, took a dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s remarks against the government on the ongoing farmer’s protest. He termed him as a “political cuckoo” who is far away from the ground but uses others for his electoral benefits.
During the press conference, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra targeted the Congress leader, saying he posted an old picture of protest while referring to the Sunday ‘maha panchayat in Muzaffarnagar, UP. BJP asserted that this is part of politics for spreading “misinformation and lies”.
Sambit Patra said “The Congress is without a president, even Sonia Gandhi is Interim president. The party is not capable of raising real issues. Sonia Gandhi holds virtual meets with leaders of other parties while Rahul Gandhi depends on old photographs in his attempt to spread confusion for politics. This describes the situation of the party”.
Sambit resonated with Rahul Gandhi with Cuckoo as she does not build her nest and seeks comfort in those built by other birds. Similarly, Rahul does not work to build his party’s organization. He does not work hard. It has become his habit to use others’ shoulders for politics. This is what Sambit described.
He also mentioned his attacks against the government over the pace of Covid-19 vaccination. Sambit said, ‘now when we are touching 1 Cr. /day. He is not tweeting a word.”
At last, Sambit Patra assured that PM Modi and his leadership is always for farmers and their welfare. Mentioning direct transfer of over Rs. 1.5 lakh crore to farmers, MSP increase, and record-breaking Procurement to prove his point.
