BJP President Amit Shah today took a dig at the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi by saying that he is unable to see changes that have taken place in the country because of his ‘Italian spectacles’.
Talking to BJP workers at Vyara town of Tapi district in south Gujarat, Amit Shah said that before seeking a report card from the Narendra Modi-led NDA government, Rahul Gandhi should first explain the alleged scams worth Rs 12 lakh crore that took place during the UPA rule.
The BJP President also reminded Rahul Gandhi that the biggest achievement of the Modi government is that not a single case of corruption has been levelled against the ministers of the union government.
Shah also said that though the situation on India-Pakistan border has "changed" after Modi took over, Gandhi, whom he referred as "Rahulbaba", could not see it due to the "Italian spectacles" he is wearing.
"Few days back, Rahulbaba asked in his speech as to what has the Modi government done in its two-and-half years of tenure. Rahulbaba, I am having that report card, but I don't want to share with you because it is very long. The biggest achievement is that you cannot level a single allegation of corruption against the BJP government," he said.
"People remember that scams worth Rs 12 lakh crore emerged during the 10 years of past Congress rule. Rahulbaba, don't ask for our report card, because people have been asking you about what happened to that money? You first need to give explanation to the people of where that money has gone," the senior BJP leader said.
