Nirav Modi episode; Cong President Rahul Gandhi takes potshots at Prime Minister
With Nirav Modi saga hot in the news media, the Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday took potshots at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue.
Taking to Twitter, where he has been very active lately, Rahul Gandhi posted, “The scamster’s escape formula: La(Mo) + Ni(Mo) —(with) Na(Mo)—> Bha(Go)”, while using the hashtag “#ModiRobsIndia”.
The allegation went as far as to suggest that Nirav Modi may have used his clout with the prime minister to slip out of the country and steal Rs 12,000 crore.
The earlier such cases of Lalit Modi and Vijay Mallya were also invoked on the occasion.
Rahul Gandhi had tweeted on Thursday as well on the issue, “Guide to looting India by Nirav Modi–1. Hug PM Modi 2. Be seen with him in DAVOS. Use that clout to: A. Steal 12,000 crore B. Slip out of the country like Mallya, while the government looks the other way,”.
The Congress had targeted the government over the Rs 11,400-crore PNB scam allegedly involving jewellery designer Nirav Modi.
The Opposition party had also raised questions on whether Nirav Modi had been tipped off following which he left the country.>
