Narendra Modi Thinks He Can Run The Country Alone: Rahul Gandhi

Sensing the lack of the number of seats that allow it to call shots in the post results scenario, Congress party on Thursday nearly went back on its claim for the post of Prime Minister as the leader of UPA and a resort to opposition parties.

Addressing Congress rallies in support of party candidates Amar Singh from Fatehgarh Sahib, Dr Raj Kumar Chabbewal from Hoshiarpur and Ch Santokh Singh Chaudhary from Jalandhar, Rahul said he had personally called up Pitroda to demand an unequivocal apology, which the people of India wanted and deserved for his controversial remarks.

Indeed, there was a competition within the Congress "to become the martyr" in the event of an election defeat, the Prime Minister said.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Wednesday held a mega road show here along an nearly the same route that Prime Minister Narendra Modis road show had followed on April 25.

Lambasting the Akalis, she said they had handed over the state to drugs, liquor, sand and transport mafia during their 10-year-rule.


Taking to Facebook, Rahul Gandhi too had criticised Pitroda for his comment and said it was completely out of line, asking him to apologise. "We all have made our position very clear - that 1984 was a bad tragedy and should never have happened", he said.

He also mocked at Modi's "non-political" interview to film actor Akshay Kumar, "Modiji you taught us about how to eat mangoes, about cutting the sleeves of your kurta and about the cloudy weather and radar, but when will you tell the country, what you did with your promises made in 2014, including jobs, fair prices to farmers for their crops, demonetization and corruption". "It's you who should be ashamed", PM Modi added. "Till Modi is there, no one will take away the land of the tribals and poor people".

Delhi chief minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal wrote on Twitter that the people of Bengal will give a "befitting reply to Modi-Shah-led perpetrators of violence and hooliganism". Modi complained to the public that those people have been hurling abuses at him and trying to damage his image and defame him.

PM also said that the "Naamdaar" family is known for misusing government machinery for personal gains.
