Rahul Gandhi must thank PM for hoisting Tricolour at Lal Chowk: BJP

New Delhi, Jan 29 (IANS): Congress leader Rahul Gandhi must thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi as it was because of him, that Gandhi could hoist Tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar, BJP National Spokesperson and former Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore said.

In an official video, released by the BJP, Rajyavardhan Rathore said, "Rahul Gandhi hoisted Indian Flag at Lal Chowk, Srinagar proudly. Today with the efforts of PM Modi and Modi government, situations have become such that any Indian can hoist Tricolor in Kashmir proudly. Rahul Gandhi must thank PM Modi for this."

Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra has entered its last lap in Kashmir and is set to culminate on Monday. Rahul Gandhi unfurled the Tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar at 12 noon to mark the end of the foot march that began on September 7. Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Rajya Sabha MP Randeep Singh Surjewala were also present on the occasion.

However, a controversy erupted as Rahul Gandhi's own cut-out was larger and taller than the Indian flag which many felt was 'disrespectful and disgusting behaviour' by a senior leader like Rahul Gandhi.

Netizens were quick to point out the seemingly 'disrespectful behaviour of Rahul Gandhi.

    Modi & his gang must be grateful to the government before him for giving him a nation with 8.5 GDP that he robbed down to negative figure (in Dec. 2019, before Covid hit) by his mismanagement. For all the national assets he sold but cunningly called the process monetization.

    What a joke by BJP ignorant fools that nobody needs any official permission to hoist tricolour anywhere in India. In fact Modi should salute and bow with respect before Rahul Gandhi for boldly hoisting the Tricolour in Kashmir after coward BJP stopped hoisting tricolour in Kashmir after abrogation of article 370 in Kashmir for fear of terrorists attack. Now Rahul Gandhi is hoisting tricolour in Kashmir without security to his life as BJP has not provided to him. Can Modi do this?????…..

    By false name Don't spread false narrative. Until Modi government comes Kashmir Lal chowk never hosted Indian Flag. Once 370 aborted only it all happened.
