'I am Rahul Gandhi not Rahul Savarkar': Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi: Congress's Rahul Gandhi today reiterated his refusal to apologise for his "Rape in India" comment, insisting that he had only spoken the truth. The comment, made at an election rally Jharkhand, has triggered a massive political row over the last two days. It created a parliamentary uproar, with leaders of the BJP calling for an apology. The party also complained formally to the Election Commission, seeking action against the leader of the Congress.
"My name is not Rahul Savarkar, I am Rahul Gandhi. I will never apologize for speaking the truth and no Congressman will do so. Narendra Modi and his assistant Amit Shah will apologise to the nation for destroying the economy of India," he added.
