Rahul Gandhi takes ‘match fixing’ jibe at PM Modi during INDIA bloc rally


Giving the reference of ongoing IPL matches, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi claimed the Opposition to be a victim of ‘match fixing’ ahead of Lok Sabha elections 2024. “Umpires were chosen by PM Modi, two players from our team have been arrested before the match,” said the Wayanad MP while addressing the INDIA bloc’s ‘Loktantra Bachao’ rally at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi on Sunday.

“IPL matches are being held today. When umpires are pressurised, players are bought and captains are threatened to win matches, it is called match fixing in cricket. We have Lok Sabha polls before us; umpires were chosen by PM Modi. Two players from our team have been arrested before the match,” Rahul Gandhi said in Delhi.

Questioning the timing of Income Tax Department’s action on Congress, which is one of the biggest opposition party, Rahul Gandhi said, “Congress is the biggest opposition party and all our bank accounts have been closed in the middle of elections. We have to run campaign, send workers to states, put up posters but all our bank accounts have been closed. What kind of election is this.”
