I haven’t apologized PM on 'chowkidaar Chor hai' remark but only to SC: Rahul Gandhi
Congress President Rahul Gandhi has said, "there is no rollback" on his 'Chowkidar Chor Hai' remark against PM Narendra Modi over his allegations of corruption and the Rafale deal. "I attributed something to the Supreme Court and that is where I have applied an apology," said Rahul. "There is absolutely no apology to Mr. Modi or anybody else," he added.
Rahul admitted that he made a “genuine mistake” by attributing the phrase to the Supreme Court in the heat of the moment. “I put words in the mouth of the Supreme Court, and frankly, I was wrong. So I apologize. But I am not apologizing in the least for the slogan ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai,’ and for saying that the prime minister has stolen money and given it to Mr Anil Ambani. No way,” added Rahul Gandhi.
Gandhi first pointed out that according to the Congress’ polling, 67 percent of people now believed that the Rafale deal was a scam. ‘It’s pretty clear that the idea that Narendra Modi is a crusader against corruption has been destroyed,” he said, “and the Congress party has actually been responsible for bringing to the front that idea that Mr. Narendra Modi is actually corrupt and helping the corrupt.”
