PM Modi’s ‘Bail-Gaadi’Dig At Congress On Shashi Tharoor’s Day In Court

JAIPUR: Includes ? 2,000 cashback*Prime Minister Narendra Modi today tore into the Congress, calling the party a “bail-gaadi” and said several of its senior leaders were out on bail. The dig, a play on the Hindi word for a bullock cart, appeared to be aimed at Congress leaders like Shashi Tharoor who received protection from arrest in the case about his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death.
“Several leaders who are called stalwarts of the Congress and former ministers are out on bail these days,” PM Modi said at a public rally in Jaipur where he pitched for the BJP’s re-election in Rajasthan state polls due by the end of the year. He presented the Congress in stark contrast to the BJP, saying “We have no tolerance towards corruption. All our efforts are aimed at building a new India.”
Besides Mr Tharoor, who’s anticipatory bail was converted to a regular bail by a court in Delhi today in the Sunanda Pushkar case, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi too are out on bail in the National Herald case of cheating and misappropriation.
