New Delhi : The BJP Saturday termed Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s attacks on Prime Minister, outcome of frustration as the party is not only losing elections across the country in a big way but its “so-called bastion Amethi is also crumbling.”
Addressing a press conference, BJP spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao said the remarks by the Congress chief indicate “desperation because the party is seeing not only its fortunes crumble all over India but also seeing its so called bastions in Amethi and Rae bareli crumbling”.
“Field reports clearly suggests that Rahul Gandhi is losing Amethi by a wide margin and the party, therefore according to the local reports is resorting to unleashing manpower, distribution of liquor and even sizeable number of weapons have been seized from both the constituencies. So certainly a great desperation is visible in the Congress camp as they see even Amethi crumbling in this election,” Rao said.
“People of the country want Modiji back. Rahul Gandhi knows the reality and is scared of losing Amethi, and out of desperation is making such claims which are factually incorrect,” he added.
Congress president on Saturday said his party’s internal assessment after four phases of polling shows that the BJP will lose in the Lok Sabha elections and he sees a “scared prime minister” unable to face the onslaught of the opposition.
Rao further said the “vote-cutter” comment of Congress is a clear acceptance of its defeat and degeneration of the party.
