Speaking to ANI, leader Pramod Tiwari said the must not forget that the grand old party won more seats than in Punjab, and under Gandhi's leadership.

"Prime Minister is not able to handle Gujarat anymore and out of insecurity and fear he is using to add fuel to the fire. I think he is forgetting that they contested the Punjab, and elections against Rahul ji and had won more seats than Making such statements against a leader is not right. What if I comment something bad about or Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he said.

Echoing similar sentiments, leader Sushil Kumar Shinde reminded the of Nanded Municipal polls where 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 is campaigning, it seals a loss for the Congress," Adityanath said, at rally in Gujarat's Valsad.
