Rahul Gandhi to address rally in Gujarat's Mehsana today; BJP slams Congress VP for attacking PM Modi
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi in recent times has upped the ante against the government over demonetisation issue.
Ahmedabad: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, who in recent times has upped the ante against the government over demonetisation issue, is scheduled to Mehsana in Gujarat on Wednesday.
Ahead of his visit, BJP had said yesterday that the Congress VP only levels personal charges against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, but cannot provide any evidence.
"Rahul Gandhi makes personal attack on Prime Minister, but cannot give any proof. When the PM took the historic decision of demonetisation, he (Rahul) said if he speaks in the Parliament, there will be an earthquake," state BJP spokesperson, Bharat Pandya, had said in a release.
"Gandhi made fun of the Parliament by saying that if he speaks in the Parliament, there will be an earthquake. He had gone on a secret holiday for two months before the crucial budget session of Parliament (last year)," he had added, as per PTI.
"Why didn't Congress actively support Narmada project (by raising the height of the dam); why did it confer Bharat Ratna on Rajiv Gandhi within 45 days of his death, while delayed the same for Sardar Patel for 41 years?" Pandya had asked.
The BJP office-bearer had also said that Rahul should provide figures about how many farmers have committed suicide in Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra during the Congress rule.
Rahul will be addressing a rally in Mehsana town.
