Gandhinagar, July 31: While BJP is accused of horse trading in Gujarat, the state's Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said that it is Sonia Gandhi's affection towards her son Rahul Gandhi that's sinking the Congress party in the entire country.
Gujrat Chief Minister said, "Sonia Gandhi is immersed in the affection towards her son, which has drowned the Congress party in the entire country.” Congress is going through the worst in Gujarat as a number of party MLAs are joining BJP ahead of key Rajya Sabha polls.
He added that the condition of the Grand Old Party is getting worse and that no one wants to accept their rule. He also accused the party of being insensitive and irresponsible.
Rupani also criticized the party for sending its MLAs to Bangalore in greed of sending its senior leader Ahmed Patel to Rajya Sabha while the state is being hit by floods.
Fearing to poaching of its legislators ahead of Rajya Sabha polls in Gujarat, Congress yesterday paraded its MLAs before the media in an effort to put to rest all speculation, including internal bickering in the party as charged by BJP.
Addressing media persons in Bengaluru where the MLAs are staying in a resort, Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil accused the BJP of trying to break the party.
Moreover, BJP on Sunday compared the Gopalkrishna Gandhi to a sinking ship after six of the Congress MLAs quit the party in Gujarat. "People are now aware that the Congress Party is now a sinking ship. And is not a trustworthy party anymore," senior BJP leader Syed Shahnawaz Hussain said.
