‘Rahul Gandhi obsessed with Narendra Modi, his speeches start and end with PM’s name’

New Delhi: Taking a jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shahnawaz Hussain on Wednesday said the latter is obsessed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as his speeches start and end with him.

“Rahul Gandhi has no idea about himself and that is why he does not understand other’s ideas. He doesn’t get tired blaming Narendra Modi ji. His speeches start and end with Narendra Modi. Narendra Modi ji must even come in his dreams,” Hussain told ANI.

“When Rahul Gandhi had discussed about the ideas of Swachh Bharat, Digital India, then the students there had given him answers. Now, by saying all this, he wants to be in the news,” he added.

Hussain further alleged that Rahul Gandhi discusses about the ideas of Prime Minister Modi as the Congress vice-president has no idea of his own.

“Even the Congress did not have any idea for the nation. That is why the nation is today lagging behind, and Narendra Modi is trying to bring it on track. The Congress, which is doing politics on poverty, won’t understand the poor,” he added.

Earlier today, Rahul Gandhi alleged that a ‘superficial’ Prime Minister Modi leads the ‘poisonous campaign’ of dividing the Hindus and Muslims during the assembly polls.

Gandhi, who was addressing the executive meeting of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee, said the BJP always has two campaigns in place during the elections – a campaign of growth and another a ‘poisonous’ campaign.

“The main aim of Narendra Modi ji and the RSS and the way they win elections is to divide Hindus and Muslims. Whether it is in Bihar, whether it is in UP, and now whether it is in Assam, to an extent in this state, in Bengal, that is the central idea that they bring to the table,” he said.

“Wherever they go, there are two campaigns. There is one campaign which everybody sees, which is the development campaign. And then there is another campaign which is underground, which is the poisonous campaign. The Congress party is standing up to this challenge and is defeating the BJP,” he added.
