Modi will even divide country to become PM: Rahul
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday raked up ‘snoopgate’ controversy to lash out at Narendra Modi saying the BJP’s PM nominee is so desperate for power that he can even ‘divide the nation’ to achieve his goal.
Addressing a rally at Karhibadar village in Balod district in Kanker Lok Sabha constituency, Rahul said, ‘Modi wants to become PM and he can do anything for it. He will divide the nation.’
Rahul, who was canvassing for party candidate Phulodevi Netam who is contesting against BJP’s Vikram Usendi, said everything is ‘consolidated’ in Modi’s hand in the BJP. ‘In BJP, only one person knows everything about the world.
If anything happens in the country, only that person knows it.
They think only (that) person will change the country,’ he said.
Rahul also took potshots at Modi over his ‘chowkidar’ pitch and over recent heartburn in senior party leaders K Advani and Jaswant Singh over their choice of Lok Sabha seats.
‘Woh chowkidari ki baat karte hai...Unke bade neta hai Advaniji aur Jaswant Singhji. Unse puchhiye chowkidari kaise hui aur unka kya hua (He talks about becoming ‘chowkidar’. Ask their (BJP’s) senior leaders Advaniji and Jaswantji of this ‘chowkidari’ and what happened to them,’ Rahul said.
