New Delhi: The Home Minister Rajnath Singh, on Sunday, attacked Congress VP Rahul Gandhi over later's comment that "Vikas (development), pagal ho gaya hai" (Vikas has gone mad) in Gujarat.
"Vikas (development) can be fast or slow. But how it can be mad? I feel pity on the brain of Rahul Gandhi," Rajnath Singh said.
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi recently stood firm on his 'Vikas paagal ho gaya hai' assertion, in reference to development in Gujarat, claiming he would not abstain from speaking the truth.
Speaking, last month, at an interactive session with social media volunteers of his party in Gujarat's Banaskantha, Rahul slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for disrespecting the office of the prime minister when he was in the Opposition, and said that the Congress would never do the same.
"Whatever we do, spot Modi ji's faults or disturb the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), but we will never disrespect the prime minister's office. When Modi ji was in the Opposition, he used to speak with disrespect about the prime minister. That is the difference between us and them; no matter what he says about us, we will not go beyond a certain point," Gandhi said, and continued, "But, we'll speak the truth, and this is the truth that Gujarat me 'vikas paagal ho gaya hai' (Development has gone berserk in Gujarat)."
