Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that he had gone to Pakistan in 2015 to eat biryani.
Modi had made a surprise visit to Pakistan on December 25, 2015 and it made international headlines for a rare visit by an Indian prime minister in decades. Nawaz Sharif was the prime minister of Pakistan at that time.
Responding to a query over PM Modi’s remarks that people in Pakistan will applaud if Congress wins the Lok Sabha elections, Priyanka Gandhi said: “It’s their view.”
When pressed further for her views on the Prime Minister’s comments made during his rally in Meerut on Thursday, she said: “He (Modi) had gone to Pakistan to eat biryani,” referring to PM Modi’s surprise stopover in Pakistan in December 2015 to meet his then counterpart Nawaz Sharif.
The Congress General Secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh East was speaking to the media after interacting with students at the Sun Beam Public School.
Priyanka Gandhi also said that she would not offer prayers at the Ram temple in Ayodhya as the matter was sub-judice in court.
On the third day of her campaign in Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi held a mega road show in the temple town covering a distance of over 15 km as scores of Congress workers hit the road in support of their leader, raising anti-Modi slogans.
