In a recent statement, Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of using the Adani issue to boost his political career. Rijiju alleged that the matter was being “deliberately” raked up by the Congress leader to gain attention and improve his standing in the political arena.

Rijiju went on to claim that Rahul Gandhi has failed politically and is using the Adani issue as a means to stay relevant. The Union Minister’s comments came during a visit to Jammu, where he was attending an event.

The Adani issue has been a topic of controversy in recent times, with allegations of the government favoring the industrialist Gautam Adani’s companies. The Congress party has been particularly vocal in its criticism of the government’s alleged favoritism towards Adani.

The allegations have been met with denials from the government and Adani’s companies, with both parties claiming that the accusations are baseless.

Rijiju’s comments are the latest in a string of attacks on Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The two parties have been engaged in a bitter political rivalry for years, with both sides trading barbs and accusations.

The Adani issue is likely to remain a contentious topic in Indian politics for some time to come, with both parties refusing to back down from their respective positions. However, it remains to be seen whether the issue will have any significant impact on the upcoming state elections or the 2024 general election.

In any case, it is clear that the political rivalry between the BJP and Congress shows no signs of abating, and both parties will continue to use any issue they can to gain an advantage over their opponents.
