Controversial BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy is back to making headlines. Swamy today alleged that Congress President Rahul Gandhi takes cocaine, a banned narcotic substance.
‘Rahul Gandhi certainly takes narcotics, especially cocaine. He will surely fail a dope test,’ he told a news agency. Swamy made these comments in his response to a statement made by union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal.
Targeting Swamy, Harsimrat said that people who had accused 70 per cent Punjabis of being drug addicts are themselves embroiled in drugs. ‘They should take dope test,’ she said.
But Swamy, who’s known for his audacious comments, gave a new spin to Harsimrat’s comments and said, ‘I welcome her statement. The person she is referring to is none other than Rahul Gandhi. It was he who said 70 per cent Punjabis are drug addicts.’ Needless to say, Swamy’s comments received immense flak from the Congress party and its supporters.
