Rahul Gandhi’s remark right this moment that “only the corrupt need to fear Prime Minister Narendra Modi” provoked a back-handed praise from Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who remarked it was “good to see him speaking the truth”.
“Even Rahul Gandhi admits that corrupt people have fear of Modi Govt. Good to see him speak truth for a change, hope it doesn’t turn out to be a one time thing (sic),” Mr Sarma tweeted, sharing a video of the Congress chief saying these phrases.

Rahul Gandhi launched a searing assault on PM Modi this morning, accusing him of “treason” within the huge controversy involving potential targets in India of Israeli Pegasus spyware and adware, which permits monitoring by hacked telephones and will be offered solely to governments.
Mr Gandhi is among the many names discovered on a leaked database of potential targets in an investigation by The Wire, Washington and different media homes worldwide.
“I am not a ‘potential target’. My phone is tapped, it is clearly tapped. Not only this phone, all my phones are tapped,” the Congress chief mentioned.
When reporters requested him whether or not he was apprehensive, he replied: “I am not afraid. I don’t get intimidated. In this country, if you are corrupt and a thief, you will be afraid of Modi. If you are neither of those, you have nothing to be afraid of,” he mentioned.
The authorities rejected Mr Gandhi’s demand for a court-monitored inquiry into snooping allegations.
“We have clarified everything in the spyware case. There is no issue for any probe. Those who are making allegations are political failures and they have no other issue,” Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Kumar informed India07.
