Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president K Therie has condemned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s comment on late Rajiv Gandhi and termed it as “utter madness”. Therie claimed in a statement that there was no record of the former Prime Minister being convicted by any court for corruption. He said just because Modi is the Prime Minister, he cannot charge anyone. 

Therie said dragging Rajiv Gandhi’s name, whose life was shortened abruptly at his prime age, is most painful, adding history will not forgive Modi for his lies. “For us, Rajiv Gandhi is a national martyr and we respect his sacrifice. He was a great, brave and solid rock son of the soil. 

We miss him,” he stated. Accusing BJP as an opportunist party, the NPCC chief said it denies 60 years of Congress’ achievements but shamelessly enjoy the fruits. He said Modi’s five-year rule has no achievements and is therefore is attacking 60 years of Congress rule and even late Rajiv Gandhi “for whom we are enjoying digital India today”. 

According to Therie, the former Prime Minister had taken India forward to the global village of civilization. 

He remarked, “We owe all that we have today to the pioneers and founding fathers of Congress. We are second to none in the world, not because of BJP and I hope BJP leaders will agree with me.”

Asserting that Modi will go down in history as the tallest liar as all his promises were lies, Therie said that all his allegations are also false. He said he agreed with Rahul Gandh that Modi’s “karma” (fate) awaits him on May 23.

Therie said Ram Madhav appears to be near honest for once for admitting that BJP will not be able to get majority and will need others. He said BJP will not only be short of majority but will be short one-third with its allies.

He said when Modi will resign on May 23, many among BJP will be happier than Congress. “Thereafter, I can foresee Modi and Amit Shah’s places will be haunted,” he quipped.
