Congress president Rahul Gandhi Wednesday blamed the legislature for “conspiracy”, saying there was a “deliberate pulverization” of organizations that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel had helped assemble.
His comments came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi disclosed the ‘Statue of Unity’ of Patel in Gujarat. The 182-meter statue, the world’s tallest, has been based on an islet close to the Sardar Sarovar Dam in Narmada area. It is double the stature of the Statue of Liberty in the US.
Tearing into Modi, the Congress boss tweeted, “Unexpected that a statue of Sardar Patel is being initiated, however every organization he helped assemble is being crushed.” “The efficient decimation of India’s establishments is absolutely conspiracy,” he said.
In another tweet, Gandhi said Patel was a loyalist, who battled for a free, joined together and common India. “A man with a steely will, tempered by sympathy, he was a Congressman deeply, who had no resistance for bias or communalism. On his introduction to the world commemoration, I salute this incredible child of India,” he tweeted.
