Assam CM hits at Rahul Gandhi: Slams RaGa of having ‘Tukde tukde’ philosophy
Guwahati: Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma once again hit back at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over the latter’s remarks of ‘India is a Union of States’
Sarma in a tweet lambasted the Congress leader of having ‘separatist’ ideology and alleged him of having a ‘tukde tukde’ philosophy.
The CM wrote: “India is far beyond just a union. We are a proud Nation. Bharat cannot be held hostage to your tukde tukde philosophy. What is your problem with Nation, Nationality and Nationalism? And hello- beyond Bengal, we north east exist.”
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi tweeted: “There is strength in our Union. Our Union of Cultures. Our Union of Diversity. Our Union of Languages. Our Union of People. Our Union of States. From Kashmir to Kerala. From Gujarat to West Bengal. India is beautiful in all its colours. Don’t insult the spirit of India.”
On Monday also, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked Congress, saying the Britishers have gone but the party has made the “divide and rule” policy its character and has become the “leader of the tukde-tukde gang”.
In an apparent reference to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s speech in Lok Sabha last week, Modi said statements were made in Parliament with the intention to incite people.
