'Modi uses lies, poison, hatred as poll weapons'
Wayanad (Kerala): Stepping up his attack on the Prime Minister on the second day of his visit to Wayanad, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said that Narendra Modi's Lok Sabha election campaign was filled with "lies, poison and hatred", but his party stood for truth, love and affection. Gandhi, who was in his constituency on a thanksgiving three-day visit after being elected to the Lok Sabha, addressed party workers at Kalpetta, Kambalakkad, Panamaram, Mananthavady Pulpally and Sulthan Bathery.
A large number of Congress-led United Democratic Front workers, women and children thronged the route in all the places in the six receptions addressed by Gandhi, on the second day of the visit. Launching a scathing attack on the Prime Minister, Gandhi said Modi "uses hatred, anger and lies", which are his "weapons".
The Congress will continue to fight the "worst sentiments" the Prime Minister represents, he said. "At the national level, we are fighting poison. Modi's campaign was filled with lies, poison, hatred and divided the people of the country. He used lies in the election.... Congress stood for truth, love and affection," Gandhi said addressing the crowd at Kalpetta.
Bathery, the last roadshow of the day, saw the maximum participation with people waiting to catch a glimpse of their MP, for whom they had given a massive majority.
