Rahul Gandhi Takes Dig at PM Over Wind Turbines Suggestion

Vastavam Web: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his suggestion that wind turbines can be used to generate clean drinking water, oxygen and energy, evoking sharp reactions from BJP leaders who said he needs to read scientific papers. “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,” he said on Twitter, as he posted a video of the prime minister’s interaction with a CEO of a wind energy company.

The prime minister is heard suggesting the CEO make use of wind turbines to produce not just energy but also oxygen and clean drinking water from thin air. Hitting back at Gandhi, union minister Piyush Goyal said, “Nobody around Rahul Gandhi has the guts to tell him that he doesn’t understand. He mocks PM Narendra Modi’s ideas when the CEO of the world’s leading company endorses them.” He also tagged a news report with his tweet that says wind turbines create water from thin air.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also attacked Gandhi in a tweet, saying, “Rahul ji tomorrow morning please get up at night and read the two scientific papers that I have attached herewith. Though I’m sure you won’t understand the complexity of the subject…” Gandhi has often attacked the prime minister for his remarks and suggestions.
