'You are now reduced to a troll': Jyotiraditya Scindia hits back at Rahul Gandhi over Adani row

New Delhi/IBNS: Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia Monday launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and called him a 'troll' for linking him to the Adani row.

Scindia's attack was a response to Gandhi's tweet wherein he targetted former Congress leaders, who either switched sides to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or snapped decades-old ties with the grand old party - Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anil Antony, Himanta Biswa Sarma, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Kiran Kumar Reddy.

"It is clear that you are now limited to being a troll," Scindia tweeted in Hindi.

The senior BJP leader, once a confidant of Gandhi, asked the Congress leader to answer three questions that he posed to him instead of levelling "unfounded" allegations and diverting people's attention from the main issues.

This came after Gandhi had taken a swipe at the former Congress leaders and asked, "They hide the truth, that's why they mislead everyday! The question remains the same - whose Rs. 20,000 crores benami money is in Adani's companies?"

Scindia hit back, saying, "Why don't you apologise for your derogatory statement about backward classes? Instead, he says he is not Veer Savarkar and will not apologise."

The former Congress chief has constantly targetted Savarkar by raking up the issue of his mercy plea.

His latest attack came last month following his disqualification from the Lok Sabha when he said, "My name is not Savarkar, my name is Gandhi and Gandhi does not offer an apology to anyone."

"The Congress has always pointed fingers at courts and why are you now putting pressure on them for your selfish interests," this was Scindia's second question to Gandhi.

"Why should the rules be different for you? Do you consider yourself a first-class citizen? You are so consumed by arrogance that appreciating even the importance of these questions is beyond your understanding," Scindia said.
