Bathinda: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday launched a scathing attack on the grand old party Congress in his poll rally where he stepped up his attack over the issue of 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Modi said that Rahul Gandhi should be ashamed of himself rather than reprimanding Sam Pitroda for his remarks.

Slamming the Congress president over the issue of 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Modi said he should be "ashamed" of himself rather than "pretending" as if he is scolding Congress leader Sam Pitroda for the comments.


Earlier in a Facebook post on Friday, Rahul Gandhi had said, "I think what Sam Pitroda Ji said is completely out of line and he should apologise for it."

Rahul Gandhi had also said that the 1984 anti-Sikh riot was a needless tragedy which caused tremendous pain. "I think 1984 was a needless tragedy that caused tremendous pain. I think justice has to be done," Rahul Gandhi said.

"Today I want to ask Congress how long they will rub salt into wounds like this, said Modi while referring to Pitroda's 'Hua to hua' remark. He said the opposition party's arrogance was at its peak.

"Congress is struggling to win 50 seats because the Congress leader is confused and their thinking is diffused," Modi added.

Replying to a reporter's question on the 1984 riots, Pitroda, a close aide of Rahul Gandhi and head of the Overseas Congress had last week said "Hua to hua..."

Pitroda later said his words have been twisted.
