Challenging Rahul Gandhi to prove the allegation of corruption he had levelled at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP MP Anurag Thakur said, “I challenge Rahul Gandhi to prove even one corruption allegation against our PM or the BJP-led central government. He can’t do that because neither has he guts nor anything substantial against the BJP government. Why is he quiet after claiming that he has proof of corruption against PM? Who is stopping him.”

Thakur had come to Ludhiana to address a BJP youth wing rally on Sunday. He told Indian Express, “If he really has any proof, why is he waiting to speak in Parliament? Why can’t he speak and prove his words outside. The leaders of his own party are laughing at him for making such a statement. After promising an earthquake against Modi ji, Rahul himself has gone underground. He has made a mockery of himself and his party.”

Beginning his speech in Punjabi with ‘Jo Bole So Nihaal… Sat Sri Akal’, Thakur called Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal “mass leader” and claimed, “The SAD-BJP alliance is extremely important to maintain Hindu-Sikh unity in Punjab.” He contniued, “I would like to congratulate the SAD-BJP government for Mohali, Amritsar and Bathinda airports which are operational. Soon Adampur airport of Jalandhar will become operational, too.” Then, realising that Ludhiana’s demand to make Sahnewal airport operational had not been met, Thakur said, “People of Ludhiana need not be disappointed. Soon an international airport will start from here too. By April, we are going to start domestic flights from here.”

Then, training his guns on Aam Aadmi Party, the BJP MP said, “Jo party kabhi Yogendra Yadav ki nahi hui, Prashant Bhushan ki nahi hui, Anna Hazare ki nahi hui aur Dilli ki nahi hui, wo Punjab ki kaisi hogi,” adding that if Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is never visible in Delhi, how will he be visible in Punjab.

Launching a scathing attack on Captain Amarinder Singh, he said, “A man whose morning comes at noon can never be an efficient CM. Our lunch time is his morning tea. Our afternoon is his morning. How can a person with such maharaja lifestyle be the CM of Punjab? He doesn’t know what is the cost of potatoes.”
