New Delhi, June 1: The Shiv Sena today took a swipe at Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for his 'suit-boot ki sarkar' jibe and said such a government is better then a "suitcase government". Mocking Rahul Gandhi's comment Sena also said that even 100 Rahul Gandhis cannot match Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "mega wave".
The Sena said that while Rahul Gandhi had started moving and speaking after his sabbatical, he cannot match Modi.
Referring to the 'Coalgate' and the 2G spectrum scams, the Sena alleged that suitcases filled with cash used to exchange hands during the Congress rule.
"Modi is absolutely right when he says that 'suit-boot government' is much better than a 'suitcase government,'" it said.
Modi has now started attacking the Congress and its leaders. Even if 100 Rahul Gandhis come forward, they cannot match Modi's mega wave," the Sena mouthpiece said, and asked if the BJP would agree with the content and facts mentioned in its editorial.
The editorial said suits are worn by people around the world and that a country's image does not improve by wearing scruffy clothes.
"The country is witnessing a new spark in Narendra Modi's tenure. India's 'suit wearing people' (referring to business community) roam the world with confidence and pride which has been improving the country's financial condition," the Sena said.
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has been referring to Modi government as 'Suit-Boot ki sarkar' in all his discussions and talks.
