Trolls remind BJP how Tom Vadakkan had unsparingly vilified the saffron party & PM Modi
Tom Vaddakan said in a press conference that the Congress questioned the integrity of armed forces and that prompted him to shift to the BJP,
- Tom Vadakkan joined the saffron party in the presence of Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
- Vadakkan says he believes in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's development narrative.
- The BJP may field Vadakkan in the Lok Sabha elections from one of the 20 seats in Kerala.
The 61-year-old has put the Congress in an embarrassing spot which dismissed his criticism of the party saying that till now he used to "abuse" Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Vadakkan is now being raked over the coals on Twitter for having vilified the BJP and the RSS for several years. Dozens of Twitter users are picking up his old tweets most of which he buffeted against the ruling party and Narendra Modi.
His assemblage included retweets of those raising doubts on the death toll in Balakot air strike and also of allegations that the prime minister siphoned off Rs 30,000 crore in the Rafale deal.
Vadakkan, who was once a close aide of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, was inducted into the BJP today in the presence of Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. Vadakkan said the Congress’ statements post the Pulwama terror strike had deeply hurt which apparently forced him to switch sides.
"Once you join BJP all your crimes are cleansed,"read one of his posts and has attracted the maximum attention of the Twitterati. His most recent tweet was “People of Uttar Pradesh beware of Jhoota's of the BJP MLA's & MP's multipurpose use. BJP's Jhoota surgical strike on BJP.”
Vadakkan has said he now believed the narrative of PM Narendra Modi. He hails from Kerala and is likely to be fielded by the BJP from one of the 20 Lok Sabha constituencies in the coastal state.
Let's look at his backstory:
So who's not being truthful now? Mani Shankar Aiyar? Pravin Togadia? Or someone else? https://t.co/ebNICBbA4R

Amazing that Modi stoops to say that Pakistan's Air Force is superior to India's! Only in order to lament the absence of Rafale jets& cover up his scandalously corrupt deal where he reduced 126 Rafales to 36, delayed delivery, scrapped Make in India & substituted HAL with Ambani! https://t.co/wIA2NMtauu

PM Narendra #Modi said if #Rafale was there, the result would have been different. So it can be interpreted that PM Modi has assumed that the country under his leadership has failed to tackle #Pakistan https://t.co/KEqi1ipDJm
