Ramesh Kumar, the Karnataka Congress MLA who made headlines last year for his comments about rape, has yet again sparked controversy following comments about the Nehru-Gandhi family.
The Congress leader said all Congress leaders have made enough money in the name of Gandhis while speaking at a protest against ED’s questioning of Sonia Gandhi.
“Every congressman has made enough wealth in the name of the Nehru-Gandhi family to last for three to four generations, and we should repay our debt by defending Sonia Gandhi against the ED summons,” Ramesh Kumar said during the protest.
Karnataka BJP Minister Sudhakar K, however, attacked the leader and called Congress’s 60 years of rule as “LootIndia programme”.
“Congratulations to the brilliant leader who described the Congress party’s 60 years #LootIndia program very beautifully! Senior leaders of your party, after admitting the corruption of the universe so honestly, what face do you keep asking for votes from the people @INCIndia
Leaders?” tweeted the leader.
In connection with the National Herald case money laundering case, Sonia Gandhi was questioned for two hours on Thursday by the Enforcement Directorate. Since Gandhi is recovering from Covid, the questioning was concluded for the day at her request.
