Well-orchestrated’ personal attack based on ‘lies’: Sam Pitroda on criticism of Rahul’s remarks in UK


New Delhi:  Amid a political storm over Rahul Gandhi’s “democracy under attack” remarks in the UK, Indian Overseas Congress chief Sam Pitroda on Tuesday said the former party president never invited any foreign countries for help and was being subjected to a “well-orchestrated” personal attack based on “lies and misinformation”.

Gandhi’s remarks in the UK have rocked Parliament with both Houses of Parliament failing to transact any significant business during the first two days of the second half of the Budget Session. A battery of senior Union ministers have led the charge against Gandhi, demanding an apology, while the Congress has countered it with its JPC probe demand on the Adani issue.

Pitroda, who heads the Indian Overseas Congress and was present for Gandhi’s interactions during his UK visit, mounted a strong defence of the comments in a series of tweets.
