The Bharatiya Janata Party BJP on Sunday blamed the desperate Rahul Gandhi-led Congress party for using power, liquor and weapons to win from Amethi and Rae Bareily.
“They are resorting to unleashing manpower, distribution of liquor. A sizable number of weapons have also been recovered from Amethi and Raebareli,” said BJP spokesperson GVL Narashima Rao on Sunday.
The party leader also hit back at Congress national president Rahul Gandhi’s claims over Modi government and said, “It is desperate and staring at its extinction.”
Rao, reacting on Gandhi scion comments, said, “Comments made at the press conference (by Gandhi) are only an attempt to show a false bravado at a time when the Congress Party is facing extinction. The Congress is literally on the death bed and is fighting for its existence in this election,”
Earlier on Sunday, Congress president in a press meet said, “Five years ago, it was said that Modi ji is invincible and he will rule for 10-15 years. The Congress has demolished Narendra Modi ji, it is a hollow structure and in 10- 20 days, it will come crumbling down. We have done what we had to do. Congress has changed the narrative by fighting on the ground.”
Reacting to these comments, the BJP spokesperson said it reflects “complete desperation because Congress is seeing not only its fortunes crumbling all over India but they also see their so-called bastion Amethi crumbling in the elections”.
