Kalpetta: Slamming Rahul Gandhi as a ‘culinary tourist’ of his constituency, CPM leader and Thalassery MLA AN Shamseer asked where was the Congress leader when the minorities were attacked in the country.
"Where is Congress when BJP and Sangh Parivar were propagating dangerous politics? Rahul Gandhi recently visited Wayanad after SFI workers here made a mistake (referring to the vandalism of MP office). What was his agenda here? Eating pazhampori (ripe banana fritters) from Mananthavady, eating bonda from Bathery and then eating egg puffs from Kalpetta. Is this what we expect from such a leader?," asked Shamseer.
The CPM leader was speaking at the 'Freedom Street' programme of Democratic Youth Federation of India on Monday here.
Rahul came running despite SFI apologising for the act of its cadres. Where was he when the minorities of this country were attacked? Where is the politician Rahul? asked Shamseer.
“In 2019, Congress said BJP has to be replaced. Some innocent securalists believed them and voted for Congress and Rahul. They won from 19 seats from Kerala. Only later people realised that they were manuring a headless coconut tree,” mocked Shamseer.
