Modi alleged that the Congress insulted the warship by using it for vacations of Gandhi family. Modi's attack on the late prime minister comes close on the heels of his allegation that Gandhi died as a "Brashtachari No 1"

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi reopened the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and targeted Congress at his maiden election rally in New Delhi on Wednesday. “Congress is talking about Nyay these days. It will have to tell who would be accountable for the injustice of 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Those who are facing riot charges have been made chief ministers. What kind of Nyay is this?” Modi said at Ram Lila ground in Delhi.

He also accused former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi of using INS Viraat as his personal taxi on a vacation. “Ever imagined that a premier warship of the Indian armed forces could be used as a taxi for a personal holiday? This was when Rajiv Gandhi was the prime minister and he was going for a vacation for 10 days. The biggest family of Congress used the warship as personal taxi. Rajiv Gandhi was accompanied by his in-laws who had come from Italy,” Modi said. He mentioned about Congress manifesto in his speech saying that the party wants to remove army from Kashmir. “Pakistan also wants army to be removed from Kashmir. Congress is speaking Pakistan’s language,” he said.
