Speaking to ANI, Congress
leader Pramod Tiwari said the BJP
must not forget that the grand old party won more seats than BJP
in Punjab, Manipur
under Gandhi's leadership.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi
is not able to handle Gujarat anymore and out of insecurity and fear he is using Yogi Adityanath
to add fuel to the fire. I think he is forgetting that they contested the Punjab, Manipur
elections against Rahul ji and Congress
had won more seats than BJP.
Making such statements against a national
leader is not right. What if I comment something bad about Amit Shah
or Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he said.
Echoing similar sentiments, Congress
leader Sushil Kumar Shinde reminded the BJP
of Nanded Municipal polls where Congress
marked its victory after Rahul campaigned for it.
"This is false. Congress' victory in the Nanded Municipal polls is the evidence of the fact that Rahul ji's presence made us win," he added.
Adityanath on Friday cornered Rahul, saying whenever he takes the onus of campaigning for his candidates, his party loses.
"If Rahul Gandhi
is campaigning, it seals a loss for the Congress," Adityanath said, at rally in Gujarat's Valsad.
