Rahul Gandhi takes dig at PM Modi over wind turbine ideas, BJP hits back

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his suggestion that wind turbines can be used to generate clean drinking water, oxygen and energy.

“The real danger to India isn’t that our PM doesn’t understand. It’s the fact that nobody around him has the guts to tell him,” Rahul tweeted.

He also shared a video of PM Modi’s interaction with the CEO of a wind energy company.

In a video, PM Modi is heard suggesting the CEO make use of wind turbines to produce not just energy but also oxygen and clean drinking water from thin air.

Hitting back at former Congress President, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra in a tweet said, “Rahul ji tomorrow morning please get up at night & read the two scientific papers that I have attached herewith. Though I’m sure you won’t understand the complexity of the subject looking at the condition of your non functioning mental “Turbines”!!”

Union minister Piyush Goyal slammed Gandhi and said, “Nobody around Rahul Gandhi has the guts to tell him that he doesn’t understand. He mocks PM @NarendraModi’s ideas when CEO of the world’s leading company endorses them.”

He also tagged a news report which states that wind turbines create water from thin air.

Textile minister Smriti Irani also took to Twitter and said, “They say ignorance is bliss, but rarely in Indian politics has an individual made a conscious effort to sustain his ignorance. It seems the real danger to the Congress flourishes unabashedly and no one seems to have the guts to tell the Yuvraj otherwise.”
