Introspect on your failures before giving sermons: BJP to Rahul Gandhi

Calling on the grand old party to introspect its internal failures, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday said Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi should first go through the history of his own party before pointing finger at others.

“The Congress party has divided the nation. During their tenure most of the corruption related scams took place. I request Rahul Gandhi to first go through the Indian history and see what all Congress party has done in the past.

Those who led to the division of the nation and spread violence, how can they advise others,” said BJP leader Rahul Sinha.

He further asserted that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the BJP do not have to learn anything from Rahul Gandhi.

Launching a scathing attack at RSS and BJP, Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said the only work of the two parties has always been to spread hatred.

“Wherever the BJP goes, it spreads hatred. Makes one person fights with the other,” he said.

“Whatever hatred you will spread, we will spread that much love. Howsoever you try to break, we will encourage that much brotherhood,” he added.

Promising a better Uttar Pradesh, Gandhi said their government will work for the youth.

“We want to change Uttar Pradesh. We have not come here to give a hollow promise of Rs. 15 lakh,” he said.

“Two youth have met (Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav). Therefore, we will work for the youth,” he added.

While addressing a Congress rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor on Tuesday, Gandhi took a dig at the demonetisation drive implemented by Prime Minister Modi in November last year.

“Friends look inside your wallets, the Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes you see, your rightfully earned money. I have an idea, I am going to turn your money into mere paper,” said Rahul Gandhi.

Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday saw the second phase of its seven-phase election with a voter turnout of 54.27 per cent till 3 pm
