Union min calls Dhruv Rathee ‘spokesman’ of Cong, AAP; he hits back

The duel between Union minister Kiren Rijiju and Youtuber Dhruv Rathee began with the former sharing an old video of Rathee being sharply critical of the Congress led UPA government for its "corruption".

A verbal battle ensued between Union minister Kiren Rijiju and Youtuber Dhruv Rathee as the former shared a snippet of an old video in which Rathee was highly critical of corruption under the Congress led UPA government at the Centre.".

Even foreign sponsored people also couldn’t defend the Congress Party when it comes to CORRUPTION,” the Union minister wrote on May 3, as caption to the video on Instagram.

In the video, Rathee remarks that the Congress led UPA government at the Centre was “synonymous” with corruption.

Responding to Rijiju’s post, Rathee published a new video in which he said that his old video is a “good answer to people who say that he doesn’t make any videos on the Congress.”

What I said in that video was correct for that time period. But Kiren ji, please have the heart to listen to what I am saying now…..” he said, raising the issue of Rijiju’s alleged remarks on eating beef in 2015.

But later you (Rijiju) said that your statements were twisted and that you don’t consume beef. In December 2015, you said that you never challenged anyone over beef consumption and that food is a personal choice.

But if that is the case, why does BJP ask for votes in the name of cow and buffalo?” Can you ask Narendra Modi why he is recieveing funds from beef producing companies?” he said, citing reports on the saffron party receiving funds from firms producing beef through electoral bonds.
