New Delhi: Justifying Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s jibe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi that “your father’s life ended as bhrashtachari No 1,” the BJP on Sunday counted 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Bhopal gas tragedy, Shah Bano case and the Bofors deal to claim that “Congress’s dynasts” are “afraid of the truth”.

Union minister Prakash Javadekar justified Mr Modi’s remark and said the late Prime Minister had “justified” Sikhs genocide and gave the “worst kind of logic” to justify it and his government was responsible for letting the Union Carbide Corporation’s Warren Anderson to flee India after the Bhopal gas tragedy and did injustice in the Shah Bano case and had the Bofors scam accused misused his family ties with the then ruling family.

“The dynasts are afraid of the truth. They are worried that BJP's record is cleaner than theirs,” he said.
