Alliance with BJP destroyed PDP: Rahul

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi unleashed stinging attacks on the Narendra Modi led-BJP government during the first leg of his two week visit to the US.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has said that a "certain arrogance" had crept into the Congress party in 2012 which led to its downfall and added that he has to think about "egos" in ensuring a right blend of youth and seniority within the party.

BJP president Amit Shah on Monday launched a scathing attack on Congress Vice-president Rahul Gandhi and said some opposition leaders are delivering speeches overseas as no one in the country wanted to listen to them. "It isolates people and makes them vulnerable to radical ideas", he said.

When he doesn't paint the Congress decline as an irresistible cyclical downswing, in which the party had little agency, and over which it has scarce control, he points to solutions that are too wide, and which open up an escape hatch big enough for the Congress top leadership - and particularly Gandhi himself.

New Delhi, Sep 12 Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi for breaking the "well-laid tradition" of not speaking against the government on foreign soil, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said the Modi government does not need a certificate for its performance from the Congress vice president.

Gandhi also highlighted the lynching of Dalits, killing of Muslims over suspicion of them consuming beef and the shooting of liberal journalists (a reference to the recent murder of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh) to drive home his point about the rise in intolerance and hatred in India under Modi's rule. "Violence against anybody, I strongly condemn", the Congress leader said during the Q&A session. Millions of small businesses were simply wiped out as a result of demonetisation. Not only that, the Congress vice-president said that he was "absolutely ready" to take up an executive responsibility if the party asked him to do so. "Even many BJP MPs told me that he doesn't listen to anyone". While pointing at schemes like MGNREGA and GST, Rahul said BJP is doing what Congress had proposed previously.

"A failed dynast today chose to speak about his failed political journey in the US", Irani said at a BJP press conference.

Mr. Gandhi also faced a question about the violence against the Sikh community following his grandmother's assassination. It is wrong to accuse Rahul Gandhi of having said anything which is belittling.
