New Delhi: Hitting back at Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for his ISIS remark in Germany, the BJP said that it is 'horrified' by his comments.
"Rahul Gandhi has behaved like Rahul Gandhi once again. You have a false estimate of India and India's potential. Horrified to hear Congress President Rahul Gandhi justifying the formation of ISIS in Syria and giving out a veiled threat that if Modiji (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) doesn't give vision to India then soon someone else(read ISIS) would give the vision," BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said.
Demanding the Congress president's apology, he said, "Unbelievable. He's a PM aspirant."
Rahul Gandhi was speaking at the Bucerius Summer School in Hamburg, Germany.
The NDA government, he said, "feel[s] that tribal communities, poor farmers, lower caste people, minorities shouldn't get the same benefits as the elite". He accused the Modi administration of "attacking the support structures created to help certain groups of people".
"All the money that used to go into schemes for the poor are now going to a few large corporates," Gandhi said.
