BHOPAL (TIP): Heaping more embarrassment on BJP after it lost a Rajya Sabha seat to Congress in Madhya Pradesh, a senior leader and state spokesperson of the party announced a Rs 1 lakh award to anyone who discloses whereabouts of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi during his “energizing” foreign trips.
As the statement stirred controversy, Congress called it a cheap publicity stunt and BJP distanced itself from the statement, saying it was his personal view.
Chairman of MP Urja Vikas Nigam Vijayendra Singh Sisodia took cue from social media campaigns to raise questions on Rahul Gandhi’s foreign trips. “Where has Rahul Gandhi gone? Anyone who can track the address or provide information, I will reward him with Rs 1 lakh cash (Rahul ka pata batao, ek lakh rupiya pao),” said Sisodia.
Taking a jibe at Congress leaders, who were trying to defend Rahul, Sisodia said few months back when Rahul went abroad, Congressmen said he’s doing a ‘meditation’ course and will return energised.
