Sankhalim, Apr 19: Claiming that speeches by Congress President Rahul Gandhi have more of a humour quotient, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadanavis on Thursday said that he need not be taken seriously.

Addressing a public rally in Sankhalim Assembly constituency in support of BJP candidate Shripad Naik, Fadanavis said that Rahul Gandhi’s speech is known for his curses against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and also for its humour quotient.

“Rahul Gandhi’s speech is known for two things. One is he utters curses to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and second is he is known for his jokes,” Fadanavis said.

“Like the way television runs their serials with disclaimers stating they are not responsible for the content, Rahul Gandhi’s speeches will also be run with a disclaimer that whatever he says is not true,” the Maharashtra chief minister said.

Taking a jibe at Congress’ Nyay scheme which provides Rs 72,000 per poor person per year, Fadanavis said that Gandhi while announcing the doles was not sure from where the money will be sourced to fund it.

“During a press conference when Rahul Gandhi was asked where he will source the fund for the scheme from, he was confused and started looking at former Finance Minister Chidambaram,” he said.

“Chidambaram reacted that there is money flowing in the central coffers which can be distributed to the poor,” Fadanavis said adding that the money has started gathering in the coffers after Prime Minister Narendra Modi started action against black money.

“Why should Congress distribute it? Modi government will give it to the poor when a new government is formed,” he said.
