Rajiv Gandhi used INS Viraat warship for family holiday: PM Modi attacks Cong
Intensifying his attack on the Congress party by invoking Rajiv Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the former PM of using an Indian Navy warship to go on a family holiday. PM Modi said that Rajiv Gandhi, while in office as PM, had used the INS Viraat to go on vacation on an island along with his wife, children and parents-in-law. Modi also said that soldiers were used to serve and entertain the Gandhis since the island did not have any facilities. Taking a dig at the Gandhis, the Prime Minister said that the same Congress now accuses him of politicising the armed forces.
