Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘radar and clouds’ remark, asking him will all aircraft disappear from the radar whenever it rains in India.

Addressing election rallies in Neemuch, Ujjain and Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh, Mr. Gandhi said that Mr. Modi insulted his family but he will never ever speak ill of the PM’s parents. “I will die, but will never insult Modiji’s mother and father.”

He also made a veiled reference to the PM’s interaction with actor Akshay Kumar during which Mr. Modi had said that he loved mangoes as a child and still loved them. Mr. Gandhi asked, “Modi ji, whenever it rains in India, do all aircraft disappear from the radar?” “Clouds and mangoes are being talked about but nothing is being said on issues that matter,” Mr. Gandhi said. He sought to know what did Mr. Modi do for the jobless youth. “Modi ji, you taught (us) how to eat mangoes; now tell the country what you did for the jobless youth.”
