Modi believes everyone in the world is like him: Rahul Gandhi on trusts scrutiny
New Delhi : Hours after the government on Wednesday announced an investigation into alleged financial irregularities involving three Gandhi family-linked trusts, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed PM Narendra Modi and said "those who fight for the truth have no price and cannot be intimidated."
"Mr Modi believes the world is like him. He thinks every one has a price or can be intimidated. He will never understand that those who fight for the truth have no price and cannot be intimidated," Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
An inter-ministerial committee will be reviewing the investigation that will check the alleged violation of income tax and foreign donation rules by Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust and Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust.
Meanwhile, the Congress has called it an act of hatred by BJP against Congress leadership.
"Facing a barrage of questions on (i) blatant compromise of India's security interests and territorial integrity, (ii) a shocking mishandling of the Covid-19 crisis which continues to devour lives and livelihood on a daily basis and (iii) unable to arrest the economic recession wreaking havoc on the life of every Indian citizen; a desperate Modi-Shah Government has fallen back on a devious hounding of those exposing its ineptitude by ordering a wholly vicious and vengeful investigation of the Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust and the Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust," said the opposition party.
