New Delhi: Taking on the Congress president for his recent statements against Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Friday mocked Rahul Gandhi, calling him a “Gappu” or gossiper who makes illogical statements.
“Jis vyakti ka Pappu se lekar Gappu tak ka safar jhooth ka jhunjhuna lekar ke shuru hua ho, woh isi tarah ki behki-behki, besuri aur behuda baatein karega. Ghotale ke guru ghantalon ko har time ghotala hi nazar aayega, desh ka vikas, pragati aur sushasan nahi (A person whose journey from Pappu to Gappu has been based on lies, that person will naturally speak irrationally and illogically. Masterminds of scams will only notice scams around, they can't witness the country's development, progress and good governance),” said the Minister of Minority Affairs.
His statement comes amid the ongoing political mudslinging between the Congress and the BJP over the Rafale deal.
