Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday used three popular Hindi idioms to target the government and accused him of raiding those who are pro-farmer.
A day after the income tax raids on the homes and offices of Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and others, Mr. Gandhi used the hashtag ‘ModiRaidsProFarmers’ with his tweet in Hindi to sarcasm at the government.
In front of three popular Hindi idioms – ‘Aalgyon pe Nachna’, ‘Bhigi Billi Banana’ and ‘Khisiyani Billi Khamba Neche’ – Mr Gandhi said what he believed he meant in the present context.
In his three covert attacks, he alleged that the central government dances the Income Tax Department to its tune, bends before the friendly media center and the central government kills those supporting the farmers.
