New Delhi, May 9 : A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi used Indian Navy's INS Viraat as a "personal taxi" for a family vacation, the Congress on Thursday said asked megastar Amitabh Baxchchan to set the record straight on the incident.
In a series of tweets, Divya Spandana, Congress' social media chief, said,''PM is lying about INS Viraat incident; check with Bachchan in case of doubt’: Wajahat Habibullah Can @SrBachchan please set the record straight for the sake of truth? Does one not feel compelled to speak up in times like these?''
''Admiral L Ramdas also clears the air on Rajiv Gandhiji’s trip to Lakshadweep. Now can the PrimeLiar @narendramodi and everybody else who lied and defamed him & the army please apologise? Or is it too much to expect from uncouth people?,''she said.
Taking a jibe at PM modi for taking actor Akshay Kumar on board INS Sumitra, she said,''Yeh teek tha? @narendramodi you took a Canadian citizen @akshaykumar with you on-board INS Sumitra.''(UNI)
