Former President of the Congress party is leaving no stone unturned to criticize the Government over the Defense Budget. Recently, he denounced the Modi Government saying the budget benefits the bourgeois friends and betrayed the soldiers involved in protecting the Nation.
Rahul Gandhi tweeted: “Modi’s ‘friend’-centric budget means, no help for Soldiers who are fighting against China in odd circumstances. Betrayal for those who protect the country.”
The Congress leader said that the budget is completely focused on Government friendly capitalists and the budget has nothing to do with the goodwill of soldiers who are fighting at the border this winter to protect the country from the enemy.
