Rahul Gandhi accuses Narendra Modi of lying on Amethi ordinance factory, asks ‘do you never feel ashamed?’


Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of lying after the latter inaugurated an ordinance factory in Amethi on Sunday. Launching a tirade against Modi, the Congress president once again asked if he had any shame left.

Gandhi tweeted, “Dear Prime Minister, I [personally laid the foundation of the ordinance factory in Amethi in 2010. The factory has been manufacturing small arms for the last few years. Yesterday, you went to Amethi and being true to yourself, you lied once again. Do you never feel ashamed?”

Amethi is Gandhi’s home constituency, which he has represented since making his political debut in 2004. Gandhi is set to contest from here once here in this year’s Lok Sabha polls, likely to be held in April and May. Speaking in Amethi, Modi had attacked the previous Congress governments for not fully utilising the ordinance factory.

Posting a video of his speech, Modi had also written, “The NDA Government is proud of our Defence Forces and will do everything possible to strengthen the forces. Those who ruled India for years neglected the forces when in power and now, when they are out of power these people are busy questioning our forces. Shame!”

This is the second time in as many days that Gandhi has questioned Modi’s shame. Two days ago, reacting to Modi’s comments that India was missing Rafale jets, Gandhi had asked, “Have you no shame at all?”
