Mumbai: BJP chief Amit Shah on Friday took a dig at Congress and asked the Congress to search for Rahul Gandhi instead of finding faults in Modi’s government during BJP’s national executive meet in Bengaluru.
“Instead of trying to find faults in NDA government, faults that do not exist, the opposition should search for its leader,” said BJP President Amit Shah.
Meanwhile, Minister of State for Environment and Forests, Prakash Javadekar, said, “The opposition is depressed and directionless today. They are looking for errors, which don’t even exist. They talk about a blame that doesn’t exist.”
Shah also urged party workers to work hard and ensure that the party kept winning. He said that the party must focus on the forthcoming elections and ensure that it wins with a huge majority.
Congress retorted, slamming the BJP for making an issue out of nothing. “Instead of worrying about Rahul, Modi government should concentrate on good governance,” said Sharmistha Mukherjee.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi had earlier on Thursday said that her son and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi would be back soon from his sabbatical.
Last month, Rahul Gandhi sought leave from the Parliament to introspect on his party’s declining fortunes, setting off speculation of a long-awaited change in the party.
