Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday shared a video targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In this video, some soldiers sitting inside a truck alleged that their officer was playing with their lives by sending them in a non-bulletproof truck.
Gandhi, in a tweet, said that soldiers are being sent to become martyrs in non-bulletproof trucks while the government has Rs 8400 crore aircraft for PM.
Is this justice?” he asked.
हमारे जवानों को नॉन-बुलेट प्रूफ़ ट्रकों में शहीद होने भेजा जा रहा है और PM के लिए 8400 करोड़ के हवाई जहाज़!
क्या यह न्याय है? pic.twitter.com/iu5iYWVBfE

Is this justice?
After the ghastly Pulwama attack last year, the CRPF had said it will procure a new fleet of mine-protected vehicles (MPVs) and 30-seater buses to ensure the safety of its troop convoys in the Kashmir Valley.
Under fire for allowing large convoys to ply on roads in a sensitive area like Jammu and Kashmir, the home ministry had announced last year that all jawans and officers of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) deployed in the Kashmir Valley can now take a commercial flight while going in to join duty or tour or while going back home on leave.
Yesterday, the Congress leader was trolled by BJP leaders and netizens after he took a jibe at the Prime Minister over his suggestion that wind turbines can be used to generate clean drinking water, oxygen and energy.
‘Rs 8400 crore plane for PM’
“The real danger to India isn’t that our PM doesn’t understand. It’s the fact that nobody around him has the guts to tell him,” Gandhi said on Twitter and shared a video clip of the prime minister’s interaction with a CEO of a wind energy company.
The BJP’s head of social media department Amit Malviya also attacked Gandhi calling him “ignorant and entitled brat”.
Targeting Rahul, Union Minister Smriti Irani said: “rarely in Indian politics has an individual made a conscious effort to sustain his ignorance.”
“It seems the real danger to the Congress flourishes unabashedly and no one seems to have the guts to tell the Yuvraj otherwise,” she said in a tweet.
