Rahul should keep country's dignity in mind while speaking on foreign soil: Shahnawaz

Press Trust of India  |  Ballia 

Hussain Sunday said that must keep India's dignity in mind while speaking on a foreign soil.

Hussain criticised Gandhi a day after the president, in a conference in Dubai, accused of "helping" Anil Ambani "steal Rs 30,000 crore" of the country.

In Dubai, Gandhi also reiterated his allegations that the shied away from defending himself personally in on Rafale deal and fielded a woman - - instead for it.

Gandhi also dubbed as having become "intolerant" during the last four years under the BJP rule.

Speaking to reporters here, Hussain said, "(in Dubai) made indecent remarks against Modi and said that intolerance in has gone up in the past four years."

"The should have kept India's dignity in mind (while making statements). Terming as intolerant is unfortunate," Hussain said.

"Rahul should keep in mind that on foreign soil, he is not speaking against the of a political party, but speaking against the prime minister of the country. Using such unfortunate words will hurt Indians," Hussain rued.

He added that "the people of the country will give a befitting reply to the Congress for using undignified language."

On a question over the SP-BSP alliance, Hussain said, "This alliance will not pose any challenge to the BJP. The result of the SP-BSP alliance will be similar to the SP-Congress alliance forged ahead of 2017 UP assembly elections. People had then rejected 'UP ke ladke' and 'UP ko yeh saath pasand hai' and reposed its faith on the prime minister.
