In a recent exchange between Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gandhi responded to Modi’s remarks regarding his previous criticisms of industrialists Gautam Adani and Mukesh Ambani. The exchange, which took place during an election rally in Telangana, sparked a war of words between the two political figures. Here’s a detailed overview of the interaction and the ensuing developments.

PM Modi’s Criticism and Rahul Gandhi’s Response

During an election rally in Telangana’s Karimpur, PM Narendra Modi questioned Rahul Gandhi’s shift in focus from criticizing industrialists Adani and Ambani to refraining from doing so after the announcement of elections. Modi insinuated that Gandhi’s silence on the matter raised suspicions about potential financial dealings between the Congress party and these industrialists.

In response, Rahul Gandhi fired back at PM Modi, suggesting that Modi’s mention of Adani and Ambani in public for the first time indicated a sense of apprehension on his part. Gandhi sarcastically referenced Modi’s alleged knowledge about money being transported in a tempo by these businessmen, insinuating personal involvement.

Rahul Gandhi’s Allegations and Counter-Claims

Continuing his rebuttal, Rahul Gandhi challenged PM Modi to initiate investigations by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) into the alleged financial dealings between the BJP and Adani-Ambani. Gandhi reiterated the Congress’s stance of prioritizing the welfare of the Indian people over cozy relationships with industrialists.

Furthermore, Rahul Gandhi asserted that any money allegedly “given” to Adani and Ambani by PM Modi would be redistributed to the Indian populace through Congress’s promised schemes if the party assumes power after the Lok Sabha elections.

Response from AICC General Secretary and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra

AICC general secretary Jairam Ramesh echoed Rahul Gandhi’s sentiments, criticizing PM Modi for resorting to attacks on his own associates due to his purported desperation in securing a clear majority in the elections. Similarly, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra accused Modi of missing the support of his allies, attributing his aggressive rhetoric to this perceived loss of momentum.


The verbal sparring between Rahul Gandhi and PM Modi highlights the intense political atmosphere surrounding the Lok Sabha elections. As both leaders trade accusations and counter-claims, the discourse sheds light on the underlying tensions and strategic maneuvers within India’s political landscape. As the elections progress, such exchanges are likely to continue shaping public opinion and influencing voter sentiments.
