Rahul Gandhi made horrendous statement, says Nirmala Sitharaman


NEW DELHI: Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday slammed Rahul Gandhi for making a “horrendous” statement saying it was a matter of shame that the senior Congress leader was speaking by forgetting about dignity of women.
At a press conference called to talk about steps taken by the government to boost economy, she was asked by a reporter about Gandhi’s comment at a public meeting in Jharkhand that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised ‘Make in India’ but “wherever you see now you find ‘rape in India'”.
She said Gandhi made a “horrendous” statement and she could have used it to divert attention from the economy.
“It is a matter of shame that a senior leader of Congress party speaks forgetting dignity of women,” she added.
