Amit Shah takes jibe at Rahul Gandhi on his Italy visit during Northeast election results
BJP leaders on Saturday attacked Congress President Rahul Gandhi calling his a "non-serious" leader as he was out of the country when election results of the Northeastern states were announced.
Taking a jibe at Rahul, BJP president Amit Shah said he has heard that there are elections in Italy.
"I have received a WhatsApp forward saying there are elections going on in Italy," Amit Shah said.
The BJP chief was addressing a press conference at party headquarters here on his party's "historic" performance in the northeastern states.
Earlier on Saturday, Union minister Giriraj Singh also lashed out at Rahul Gandhi, calling him a “non-serious party president” who abandoned his party workers at a crucial time.
"He is not a natural leader, he is holding to the post because of circumstances. Ho leader leaves his party workers at such a crucial time. He is a non-serious party president," Giriraj said.
“He knows when he has to run away, he was forcefully elected as the Congress leader," he added.
