Congress defends Rahul’s silence during Rajasthan crisis

New Delhi: While the Congress was facing crisis in Rajasthan due to open rebellion by Sachin Pilot, former party chief Rahul Gandhi was busy taking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and raising the Chinese transgression and coronavirus-related issues.

He kept mum on the Rajasthan developments in public. He, however, attacked the media.

“Today, a large part of the Indian news media has been captured by fascist interests. A hate-filled narrative is being spread by television channels, WhatsApp forwards and fake news. This narrative of lies is tearing India apart,” Rahul Gandhi had tweeted.

Defending Rahul Gandhi, Congress spokesperson Rajiv Tyagi said, “The Congress is a democratic party. So discussions are natural. Rahul Gandhi has been acting as a responsible leader and has opened front against the Bharatiya Janata Party government. He is exposing it on several fronts, like the Covid-19 pandemic, Chinese transgression and unemployment.”

Congress General Secretary K.C. Venugopal said Rahul Gandhi was busy in building the party.
