“Why the sudden silence?” PM hits back at Rahul Gandhi, mentioning “Ambani, Adani”.

Prime Minister Modi’s response is noteworthy as Rahul Gandhi has frequently accused the government of favoring prominent industrialists.

In a strong rebuttal to Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi questioned why the Congress leader had stopped his criticism of “Ambani-Adani” since the announcement of the Lok Sabha elections.

“Congress’s leader continuously targeted one thing for five years. After the Rafael issue lost traction, he shifted to a new narrative. Initially, it was about ‘five industrialists, five industrialists,’ which later turned into ‘Ambani-Adani.’ But ever since the election announcement, he has stopped targeting Ambani and Adani. Today, I ask from the soil of Telangana, he should reveal how much money they have received from Ambani and Adani? Was there a deal? Why this sudden silence on Ambani and Adani? Something seems fishy. You criticized them for five years, and then overnight, it stopped,” the Prime Minister stated at a rally in Telangana.

The Prime Minister’s response is significant as Rahul Gandhi has consistently accused the Narendra Modi government of favoring top industrialists. Gandhi has also emphasized that while the BJP government has made 22 Indians billionaires, the Congress aims to elevate millions of people to a higher economic status if it comes to power in these elections.

The Prime Minister’s response in Telangana holds significance, especially considering that Telangana, a Congress-ruled state, recently signed multiple MoUs with the Adani Group, amounting to an investment of ₹ 12,400 crore across various sectors.

The BJP has raised concerns about Rahul Gandhi’s frequent verbal attacks on wealth creators and leading industrialists. In fact, former Congress spokesperson Gourav Vallabh, who recently joined the BJP, revealed that the party leadership pressured him to criticize billionaire Gautam Adani.

In an exclusive interview with NDTV, Gourav Vallabh, who had previously addressed a press conference against Mr. Adani, stated, “After a SEBI probe gave a clean chit to the Adani Group, I told the senior party leaders to drop the matter. But they didn’t stop.”

During his address in Telangana, the Prime Minister highlighted Rahul Gandhi’s tendency to stir controversies during election seasons. He recalled how Gandhi had raised the issue of alleged corruption in the Rafale aircraft deal before the 2019 general election.
