Rahul Gandhi’s Puzzle: Congress President Rahul Gandhi lashed out on Saturday at former party leaders Jyotiraditya Scindia and Ghulam Nabi Azad, among others, for recent anti-party remarks. Gandhi accused five former leaders of concealing the facts and misleading the public in the Adani controversy.

The Congress leader went on to ask who owns the Rs 20,000 crore invested in Adani shell businesses, a question he has been asking since launching an attack on the industrialist’s purported ties to Modi.

 

Gandhi attacked Ghulab Nabi Azad, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Union Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Reddy, and Ex-Defence Minister AK Antony’s son Anil Antony on Twitter. “They conceal the truth, which is why they deceive every day!” “The question remains: who has 20,000 crores in benami money in Adani’s companies?” he tweeted.

 

Scindia claimed earlier this week, in a scathing attack on Gandhi and the Congress, that the party has been left with no philosophy other than that of a “traitor who works against the country.”

Following Gandhi’s conviction in a defamation lawsuit, he accused Congress of providing him “special treatment.” He accused the party of putting pressure on the judges and doing all in its power to remain relevant.

Scindia, who was formerly regarded close to Gandhi, left the Congress in 2020 after disagreements with the leadership.

Similarly, Azad, who left the Congress last year, claimed that Gandhi was the fundamental reason he and many others were no longer members of the party, and that one had to be “spineless” to continue in the great old party.


Gandhi also mentioned two former Congress leaders who just joined the BJP. N Kiran Kumar Reddy, the last chief minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh, joined the BJP on Friday. Reddy chastised the Congress leadership for failing to recognise the judgement of the people and rectify course. “They believe they are correct and that everyone else, including the people of India, is wrong,” he explained.

Meanwhile, former Kerala Chief Minister and veteran Congress leader A K Antony’s son, Anil K Antony, joined the saffron party on Thursday.
