The week started with Prime Minister Narendra modi invoking former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. Last week, PM Modi had said that Rajiv gandhi was haileed as Mr. clean by his gourtiers but he died as Bhrashtachari no.1. His commeents invoked strong reaction from leaders across party lines. Congress president rahul gandhi said that Modi has hatred towards his family but he only has love for PM modi. Well, this did not stop PM Modi. This week, he alleged that those who talk about politicisation of armed forces should remember that Rajiv gandhi had vacationed on INS Virat. PM Modi was speaking at Ramlila maidan in Delhi. He said that the aircraft carrier was diverted especially so that Rajiv Gandhi can holiday with his entire family, friends and in-laws. PM Modi’s allegations were based on an india today report which appeared in the magazinee in 1988 january. The story said that Rajiv gandhi was holidaying on an island with his family and state’s resources such as helicopters and INS Virat as PM Modi alleged were used for that purpose. #RajivGandhi #SamPitroda #AAP
