Modi takes a dig at Rahul; says 'Chor' wants 'Chowkidar' out of the way
"The thieves, first and foremost try to remove the 'Chowkidar' because, without that, none of their intentions will be fulfilled," PM Modi saidAuthor : Sunaina
In a witty response to Rahul Gandhi's often repeated 'chowkidar hi chor hai' phrase, PM Narendra Modi took a dig at Rahul Gandhi saying that a 'chor' (thief) was trying to remove the 'chowkidar'(guard) from his way.
"The thieves, first and foremost try to remove the 'Chowkidar' because, without that, none of their intentions will be fulfilled," PM Modi said during his public address in Odisha's Baripada.
Accusing the Congress of fooling people, PM Modi congratulated Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman for exposing them.
"I want to congratulate Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman for bringing to light those who were fooling the nation; those who were playing with the national security of the country and those who were using the Parliament for their own entertainment," he said.
After the Congress lawmakers flew paper planes on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley speaking in the Lok Sabha during debate on the Rafale deal, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan stood up and asked them to refrain from the way they were behaving, saying "Have you not made paper planes in your childhood? Why are you doing this? You demanded this discussion. So you have to listen."
Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had asked why the Congress did not add even a single fighter jet during its 10 years long rule at the Centre.
