Vice President takes on Rahul Gandhi over his rear-view mirror remarks on Modi

New Delhi: Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar on Tuesday said that one should look in the rear-view mirror to notice those out to taint, tarnish and destroy the country's institutions.

Dhankhar comments came against the backdrop of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s remarks in the US that PM Modi is driving India looking into the rear view mirror and it is crashing.

He also said that by 2047, India will be the number one nation.

"...some of us do not take pride...misguided souls confused about the potential and real-time accomplishments of this country," he said, addressing a batch of Indian Defence Estates Service officers at his official residence.

Mr Dhankhar also said some people in and outside the country were trying to "calibrate us".

"We cannot allow others to calibrate us. Their calibration is not objective.... The rise of India is indigestible in some quarters because this country believes in peace and stability, harmony of the world," he said.

The vice president told the officers not to "carry baggage of history. It will impede your progress".

He said one has to look in the rear-view mirror and then "you know those who are not well disposed towards the nation, those who are out to taint, tarnish and destroy our institutions -- we come to notice them".

"You look in the rear mirror only to avoid someone who is determined to create an accident," he said.
