Congress must apologies for Rahul Gandhi's remark on women in RSS: Anandiben

Mani Shankar Aiyar Congress Can Be Headed By Mother or Son Only

At a time when the Congress vice-president is touring Gujarat, Mr. Shah advised him to instead focus on Amethi.

During his election campaign, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi alleged that the current government of Narendra Modi lacks the will to listen to the people and facilitates crony capitalism. "When BJP will seek votes in 2019, its leaders will not say what should be done but what have been done", he added. "Just as Prime Minister Narendra Modi had used a similar strategy in Varanasi-roadshows were beneficial for the BJP-the party is now hoping for similar results". It is clear that there are no challengers to the Gandhi family and his elevation would be smooth.

In a strongly worded statement, BJP leader and ex-Gujarat CM Anandiben Patel has attacked Rahul Gandhi for her jibe at RSS. The story has been translated into Hindi and Gujarati and the translated versions are being circulated on WhatsApp. Making a pitch for Modi government's performance model versus Nehru-Gandhi model, Shah attacked Gandhi scion for not providing a collector's office in Amethi. I want to ask the "shahzade" of Congress as to what have your three generations given to Amethi...

"I want to ask the Congress Shehzada (Rahul Gandhi), Amethi voted for your three generations, what have you given them?" "People of Gujarat are well aware of development of their state which happened under the BJP rule".

Amethi also witnessed the attendance of Smriti Irani and chief minister Yogi Adityanath.

We also lost to Argentina, which had the likes of Carlos Tevez, Javier Mascherano and Pablo Zabaleta but the game was very tight. As midfielders, both players are capable enough to take on the opposition and are expected to play a key role on the field.

Countering Rahul's charges against Modi, Shah said the BJP-led Centre has initiated over 106 schemes for the poor, Dalits, tribals, the backward classes, etc. "And then you have Smriti behen who has embraced the people of Amethi even though she lost from here", said Shah. "People of Amethi are asking for "Vikas" even as their MP goes around the nation mocking "Vikas", she said.

Irani, who is on a two-day tour in Amethi, said that due to its "VVIP constituency" status everyone thinks that the area would have seen a huge surge in development over the decades, which was not the case.

"A vast stretch of land was given by farmers long back for construction of the Samrat cycle factory".

Her remarks came hours after Gandhi targeted the RSS and the BJP alleging that they did not give any importance to women and asked how many of them were seen attending the Sangh's shakhas.
