New Delhi: Asserting that Rahul Gandhi's allegations against Prime Minister Narendra Modi has no merit, Union Human Resource and Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar on Thursday said the Congress and its vice-president is indulging in ‘spit and run politics.’
"He thought that he will create an earthquake, but he has dug a pit for Congress. When we made allegations in the coal scam the (Supreme) court found merit in it and revoked licenses. He thought that he could excite people, but nobody is excited," Javadekar told reporters here.
He further commented that it was “bad politcs” and Congress was indulging in “spit and run politics."
Speaking at Gujarat's Mehsana on Thursday, Gandhi had alleged that there were notings made by officials from the Sahara group in IT records, which claimed that nine payments totalling to Rs 40 crore had been made to Prime minister between October 2013 and February 2014.
He also added that according to documents with the IT department, the Birla Group too had paid Rs 12 crore to the Prime Minister.
Seeking an independent inquiry, Gandhi said that he was raising the issue "on behalf of the country."
