New Delhi: Ahead of Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Punjab over the issue of drugs menace, Yoga guru Ramdev took a potshot over the Congress vice-president, asking that has he ever taken drugs himself.
Ramdev took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi saying that, “I want to ask Rahul if he has ever taken drugs himself? And he will have to do it honestly.”
Ramdev also slammed the Congress vice-president saying that “BJP will be lazy if Rahul Gandhi becomes Congress president.”
Rahul Gandhi’s Punjab visit is already facing criticism by the opposition parties. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has also dubbed Gandhi’s protest against drugs as ridiculous and alleged that the Congress was adopting double standards as it had failed to initiate any action on the same when the matter was brought to the notice of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Rahul Gandhi will lead a protest in Punjab’s Jalandhar city on Monday against the drug menace in the state. The Congress vice-president’s protest comes at a time when there is an ongoing controversy over certification of Bollywood film ‘Udta Punjab’, based on the menace of drugs in the state.
