Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday stepped up his attack on prime minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government over the Agnipath scheme. Extending his support to the protesters, he said ‘true patriotism lies in strengthening the army’ and hit out at the prime minister for ‘weakening the army with a new deception’.
“The Chinese army is sitting on the soil of our India. Prime Minister, true patriotism lies in strengthening the army but you are weakening the army with a new deception. In this movement, to save the future of the country, we are with the youth. I am saying again, you have to take back ‘Agneepath’,” Rahul Gandhi wrote on Twitter.
