As PM makes 'bail gaadi' jibe, Cong warns BJP leaders of sending them behind bars


New Delhi,Shortly after Prime Minister Narendra Modi ridiculed Congress with his 'bail gaadi' remarks, the grand old party on Saturday said if voted to power it could put BJP leaders including children of big shots behind bars after proper probe into various corruption cases. "Jab hamari sarkar BJP neta, Mantri, rashtra adyeksha ke suputra bail peh bhi nahi rahenge, jail jayenege (When our government in states like Rajasthan and their will be honest probe, their leaders, Ministers and even their national party president Amit Shah's son will not be on bail, but will go to jail)," Congress spokesman R P N Singh told reporters here. He maintained that there are corruption cases against several BJP leaders including in poll-bound Rajasthan but no honest probe is being conducted. The remarks come within hours Prime Minister Modi at a function in Jaipur on Saturday said: "Congress ko aaj kal kuch log 'bail-gaadi' bolne lage hain. Congress ke kai diggaj neta aur mantri aajkal bail par hain (These days the Congress party is being called as 'Bail gaadi', as some of their prominent leaders are out on bail these days)." It can be mentioned here that among others Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi are out on 'bail' in The National Herald case. Congress lawmaker from Kerala and former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor was on Saturday granted regular bail by a Delhi court in the sensational case relating to the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar in January 2014. On July 3, Delhi High Court gave former Home Minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram a temporary relief and passed an order giving him interim protection from arrest till August 16. Congress spokesman RPN Singh also said: "The Prime Minister who has brought farmers back to 'beil gaadi (bullock cart)' in the age of tractor speaks of corruption. Complaints against BJP ministers are not even inquired. When we come to power, these will be inquired (into), and they will not be on bail but in jail".
