Rajiv Gandhi misused warship INS Viraat,
Rajiv Gandhi misused warship INS Viraat, Gandhi family used it as personal taxi: PM Narendra Modi

In a scathing attack on the Congress, PM Narendra Modi on Wednesday accused former prime minister late Rajiv Gandhi of misusing warship INS Viraat, adding that the Gandhi family had used it as a personal taxi. Addressing a rally at Ramlila Maidan in the national capital, PM Modi said that the family had insulted the warship by going on a vacation in it.

Clarifying the details, PM Modi said that the incident dates back to the time when the late Rajiv Gandhi was the prime minister and had gone on a vacation for ten days.

"Congress k naamdaar parivar ne INS Viraat ka vyaktigat taxi ki tarah istemaal kiya, uska apamaan kiya tha. Yeh baat tab ki hai jab Rajiv Gandhi pradhanmantri the aur 10 din ki chuttiya manane nikle the. (The Congress family used INS Viraat like their personal taxi and insulted it. All of this happened when Rajiv Gandhi was the prime minister and had gone on a vacation for 10 days)," tweeted PM Modi.

"Kya aapne kabhi suna hai ki koi apne parivaar ke saath yudhpot (warship) se chuttiya manane jaaye? (Have you ever heard that anyone has gone on a vacation with their family on a warship)?" added PM Modi.
