Rahul in Dubai : I am here to listen your 'Dil Ki Baat', not to tell 'mann ki baat'

DUBAI, Jan 11 (PTI) : Congress president Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his monthly radio programme "Mann Ki Baat" in Dubai on Friday, saying that that he wants to listen to problems of the Indian workers there instead of telling his "mann ki baat (matters of the mind)".

"Main yahan apne mann ki baat kahne nahi aaya hun..main yayan aapke dil ki baat sunane aaya hun (I have not come here to speak my mind, I have come to listen to your heart)," he said in his address at the Jabel Ali labour colony.

He was referring to PM Modi's radio broadcast "Mann Ki Baat" where he addresses the nation on various issues.

Since the last few days, Rahul Gandhi, on Twitter, has been attacking the prime minister and the government especially over the Rafale jet deal.

Rahul Gandhi, who is in the UAE, was welcomed by the Indian community at the Dubai airport on Thursday. He praised the Indian workers in Dubai for making the country proud by their hard work in the UAE.

"You have illuminated the names of every religion, every state and every caste," he said.
