New Delhi: Coming to the defence of Narendra Modi, Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj on Monday described the snooping allegation against him as totally false and a "dirty trick" by a "frustrated" Congress which will not affect the BJP.
Claiming that there was an anti-Congress wave in Delhi, she said the response to Rahul Gandhi`s rally yesterday had proved this.
She also took a dig at Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Admi Party, saying it should now rename itself `Ameer Admi Party` (rich man`s party) after its members disclosed their assets and claimed the people will not vote for it.
With Congress stepping attack on Modi on the allegation of snooping on a woman in Gujarat in 2009, Swaraj, who was herself considered as an aspirant for the PM candidature, said, "This is a demonstration of dirty tricks of Congress.
"When Congress gets frustrated, it comes down to such things. This allegation is totally false. Congress will keep hatching such conspiracies in the coming days. BJP or its workers will not disturbed."
"They (Congress) make these things. First they search for these types of things and when they do not get it, they make it up. These allegations are also the same," Swaraj told reporters on the sidelines of a workers` meet at Kasturba nagar.
Taking a dig at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, the leader of opposition said that `Sahebzada` has worked from the grass-root level and has not landed from a helicopter and added that there was a huge difference between `Shehzada` and `Sahebzada`.
She said that people of Delhi are opposing Congress.
"What happened during Rahul Gandhi`s rally yesterday in Delhi proves that people do not want Congress party. If people did not stop after repeated request by Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit, it proves that there is an anti-Congress wave going on Delhi," Swaraj said.
The BJP leader said that she was confident of party retaining two states of MP and Chhattisgarh.
"As far as BJP goes for the other four states where elections are being held, I can say with confidence that the two states in which BJP is ruling, we retain it and snatch Delhi and Rajasthan from Congress," she said.
