New Delhi: BJP on Monday hit back at Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi over his attack on RSS, the party's ideological fountainhead, saying that despite his family's "campaign" against the Hindutva organisation it has gone from strength to strength.

It also asked him to introspect on the electoral reverses of Congress and why party leaders were leaving the organisation and did not have "faith" in his leadership.

"RSS has been attacked for decades by Rahul Gandhi's family. They ran a campaign against it but RSS has only gone from strength to strength. The more he will target it, the more it will grow. Rahul suffers from RSS phobia," said BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma.

"He should introspect more on the internal affairs of Congress," he said.
