New Delhi, November 1: The remark on India's ranking in World Bank report on the ease of doing business by the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was criticized by Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday.
Addressing a press conference Prasad questioned Rahul Gandhi that whether he understands the implication of ease of doing business. He also urged him that he should not scorn the institutions like World Bank instead of that he should respect the independent body. He further added that World Bank does not work under any pressure and the report is not sponsored by BJP or its government.
Talking in a Gujarat’s election rally, Rahul Gandhi had said that Sabko maloom hai “ease of doing business” ki haqeeqat, lekin khud ko khush rakhne ke liye "Dr Jaitley" ye khyal achcha hai (Everyone knows the reality of "ease of doing business", but to keep yourself happy, "Dr. Jaitley" this is a good idea)
Taking a dig at this statement, Prasad said that nowadays, he (Gandhi) is taking opinion from his pet Pidi. Aajkal Rahul ji har cheez par raay rakh rahe hain, jo kuch bachta hai wo Pidi se rakhwa rahe hain. Theek hai uska bhi adhikaar hai.
He also targeted the Kerala Government for the terror activities and ISIS network. He said that in the name of love jihad, Terror activities are going on in Kerala. He further added that some terrorists are receiving funds from foreign countries to establish Islamic State in Kerala.
