New Delhi: Launching a counter tweet attack on Rahul Gandhi for his “insecure dictator” barb at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah said the country has seen only two “insecure dictators” and asked the Congress president to take a guess as to who they were.

Shah said the first dictator was the one who imposed emergency and the other who wanted unrestricted access to read letters of common citizens.





While the first reference is obviously to former prime minister Indira Gandhi, his second reference was to Rahul's father Rajiv Gandhi is alleged to have wanted a law for unrestricted access to read letters.

Rahul earlier attacked PM Modi over the Centre's move to authorise 10 agencies to intercept information on any computer system, saying converting India into a police state won't solve his problems but only proves he is an "insecure dictator".

In another tweet, Shah also accused the Congress chief of "fear-mongering" and playing politics with national security.





Playing on words of a popular film song, Shah also tweeted in Hindi, "Tum itna kyon jhutla rahe ho, kya dar hai jisko chhipa rahe ho" (why are you falsifying so much, what are you afraid of).

With this Shah tagged a government statement that the decision to designate 10 agencies for interception was in accordance with rules framed during the UPA government.
