New Delhi (July 15,2023) : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday launched a fresh attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling him out for visiting France while the state of Manipur was burning. "Manipur burns, PM Modi in France," Gandhi tweeted. "What kind of priorities are these?"
The Congress leader's tweet came in the wake of the recent violence in Manipur, which has left at least 10 people dead and dozens injured. The violence was sparked by a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which has been met with widespread protests across India. Gandhi has been a vocal critic of the CAA, and he has accused the Modi government of using the law to divide the country. He has also called for the repeal of the law.
In his tweet, Gandhi said that the Modi government's priorities were "out of sync" with the needs of the people. He said that the government should be focused on addressing the violence in Manipur, rather than visiting foreign countries. The Modi government has defended its decision to visit France, saying that it was important to maintain good relations with the country. However, Gandhi's tweet has put the government on the defensive, and it will be interesting to see how it responds.
