Rahul hits back over Modi's 'stolen bike' remark
Reacting to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's allegations that Rahul Gandhi rode on a stolen motorcycle with a history-sheeter in Rajasthan's Gopalgarh, the Congress vice president said he cannot comment over the kind of language used by the Gujarat Chief Minister.
"What can I say over this? I don't use these kind of language...it is his (Modi's) language. On the contrary, we use the language of love and compassion. He can say whatever he feels like," Rahul told mediapersons.
Modi on Saturday slammed Rahul Gandhi over his 'Dhoom' remark and said he remembered the Bollywood film as he rode a motorcycle with a 'history-sheeter'.
He said the country will not see return of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) 3 at the Centre.
"A few days ago, Shehzade ji had talked about Dhoom 3. I was surprised," Modi said addressing a rally here.
"Then I remembered that the film is all about motorcycle related stunts...shehzada ji also came to Gopalgarh on a motorcycle. He kept Ashok Gehlot (former Rajsthan Chief Minister) in darkness," Modi said.
"He roamed around on a bike.It was a stolen bike and a history sheeter was driving it," the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate said.
Modi also slammed Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi as he said: "Dhoom 3 was all about father and son while in this country a mother and her son are playing the same game.It happened twice but this time there will be no Dhoom 3."
Dhoom 3 is a Bollywood film which hit the theater last year.
It featured actor Aamir Khan in the lead role.
