NEW DELHI: Ever since the Monsoon Session of the Parliament has started, Congress President Sonia Gandhi and son Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi have been discovering new issues to create disruptions to make sure that the two Houses do not function.
However, the mother-son duo on Thursday shot themselves in the foot as they attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Naga peace accord accusing the Centre of not consulting the North-East Chief Ministers.
Lashing out at PM Modi, Sonia Gandhi said, “We are actually shocked that PM Modi did not even think of taking our Manipur CM, Arunachal CM and Assam CM, who are directly affected by this.”
The remark by Gandhi came as a sharp contrast to what Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki claimed yesterday on his account on a micro-blogging site. In one of his posts on Twitter, which now appears to be removed, Tuki wrote, “Welcomed the initiative of the Centre to bring a peaceful solution to the prolonged Naga political issue.”
The image of this tweet is now doing rounds on internet as Sonia Gandhi’s misinformation on PM Modi not consulting the Northeast CMs has been revealed.
Ahead of the accord signing, PM Modi had called a meeting with the Northeast CMs on July 15, however, only three of eight CMs turned up for it. The pending ministers all from Congress-ruled states skipped the meeting.
