Attack on Congress for misuse of Viraat in the pastLately, Mr Modi has accused Congress party for the alleged misuse of Navy's Aircraft Carrier INS Viraat for Rajiv Gandhi's holiday visit to Lakshadeep islands with his family and friends family in the year 1987. The Naval authorities refuted Modi's charges. Retired Admiral Ramdas, the then Flag Officer Commanding in Chief Southern Naval Command, based at Kochi denied the charges, and confirmed that only PM Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi were taking passage on board Viraat on an official visit to Lakshadeep island. No one else accompanied them.
What is the truth in it? It is alleged that the family members of Sonia Gandhi and the family of Superstar Amitabh Bachan spent their holidays at Bangaram island resort. There is evidence to the event that they all spend their days in the islands.
Congress party brands Modi as lier. Who is right? Mr. Modi or the Navy? How and who can confirm the fact of this matter of a 30 year old event? Let us search for the documents.
