Moments after Rahul Gandhi likened the BJP to ‘power-hungry’ Kauravas, the saffron party hit back at the Congress president, calling his speech the ‘rhetoric of a loser’. ‘It sounds like a rhetoric of a loser devoid of substance,’ Union minister Nirmala Sitharaman said. Sitharaman also accused the Congress of being ‘solely responsible’ for the anti-Sikh riots in 1984, terming it ‘a party that cried over the dead bodies of terrorists.’ ‘A party which questioned the fundamental existence of 'Shree Ram' today wants to be identifed with the Pandavas,’ mocked the minister. ‘Rahul Gandhi attacked Veer Savarkar just to make his family responsible for freedom,’ Sitharaman rebutted Gandhi's allegation that ‘Savarkar wrote a letter to the British begging for mercy and clemency.’ Responding to Rahul's allegations against BJP chief Amit Shah, Sitharaman said that they were part of a ‘fake and falsely motivated campaign’.
