New Delhi: Congress leader Pawan Khera Tuesday stroke back at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sambit Patra after the latter said Rahul Gandhi is a present-day Mir Jafar.
In his counter statement, Khera said that they are learning from the BJP itself as to how to deliver answer. He said, “He will get a strong answer soon. We are also learning from them (BJP) how to give answers. Soon action will be done on his statement.”
The Congress leader accused the central government of creating the whole drama deliberately so that they can excape the questions raised by the Opposition.
“Criticizing government is not criticizing the nation. Government should understand this. Debate does not make democracy weaken instead it strengthens it. Government is doing this drama because they are trying to escape the opposition’s questions,” said Pawan Khera.
“They are worried that Rahul Gandhi might again ask the PM about his relations with Adani. There is no JPC probe yet, this is the reason they are creating so much drama,” he added.
He will get a strong answer soon. We are also learning from them (BJP) how to give answers. Soon action will be done on his statement: Pawan Khera on Sambit Patra's statement that Rahul Gandhi is 'Mir Jafar' of present era

Sambit Patra Charges Allegations Against Rahul Gandhi
Meanwhile, in a bid to demand an apology from former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, BJP leader Sambit Patra compared the former with Mir Jafar saying that Jafar had approached the East India Company to become a King.
After invading India, the Britishers stood up with Jafar and the rest is history, added Patra. Mir Jafar who was a military general betrayed Siraj ud-Daulah and helped the East India Company in the battle of Plassey in June 1757. Mir Jafar met the British force at Plassey.
During the battle, Jafar held his forces back, allowing the British soldiers to take full advantage of the terrain. The British forces were able to defeat the soldiers of Siraj ud-Daulah, forcing the Nawab to flee for his life. Siraj was captured soon thereafter and later executed.
Patra said, “Mir Zafar did the same thing, he gave 24 Parganas to get help from East India Company and now Rahul is doing the same kind of politics.” “He is asking for help from foreign countries to become ‘Sahzada’ in India, Patra added.
Highlighting the participation of Rahul Gandhi in Parliamentary debate, Patra said, “Debate is the soul of democracy but Rahul Gandhi had only participated only six times since 2019. He is not participating in the debate.”
Further, attacking Gandhi on his remarks of saying ‘unfortunately I’m an MP,’ Patra said, “Rahul Gandhi doesn’t know what to say. He speaks only with the help of Jairam Ramesh. He himself said that ‘unfortunately I am an MP”.
History repeats itself!
Rahul Gandhi is today's Mir Jafar!
Just like Mir Jafar took help from East India Company to become Nawab, Rahul Gandhi is seeking 'help' from foreign nations as part of his shameful agenda.
