Rahul Gandhi wants to topple govt with foreign help, says Sambit Patra, calls him 'Mir Jafar'
Sambit Patra said that whenever Rahul Gandhi goes abroad, he insults the country. He goes to London and says that democracy is dying in the country and asks why America and Europe are not helping to save India's democracy. Sambit Patra said that Rahul Gandhi appeals to foreigners to interfere in India's internal affairs and that is why I have called Rahul Gandhi 'Mir Jafar'. He wants to topple the government by asking help from foreign powers.
Rahul will have to apologise, says Patra
Sambit Patra said that even in 2019, Rahul Gandhi had made false allegations against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he would not apologize. But later his lawyer apologized in the Supreme Court, after which the then Chief Justice said that merely apologizing would not work, the apology has to be given in writing which he had to do.
