While BJP leaders are continuously asking for an apology from Rahul Gandhi over his remarks that ‘Make in India’ programme had turned into ‘Rape in India’, the Congress leader on Saturday refused to tender an apology at Bharat Bachao rally in Delhi.
Watch it here:

“I was told in Parliament by BJP yesterday ‘Rahul ji, you gave a speech. Apologise for that.’ I was told to apologise for something which is right. My name is not Rahul Savarkar. My name is Rahul Gandhi. I will never apologise for truth,” Rahul Gandhi said during party’s ‘Bharat Bachao’ rally at the Ramlila Ground in the national capital.
He added that “No one from Congress will apologise. It is Narendra Modi who should apologise. He should apologise to the nation. His assistant Amit Shah should apologise to the nation. I will tell you why they should do that.” Meanwhile, he said that “Today, GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth is at 4%, that too even after they (BJP) changed the way to measure GDP. If GDP is measured following the previous method, it will be just 2.5%.”
While talking about the Citizenship Amendment Bill, Rahul Gandhi said, “The country knows the situation today. They work to create divides – between religions – in Jammu and Kashmir, in northeast. Go to Assam, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh. Go and see what Narendra Modi did there, he has set ablaze those regions.”
