New Delhi, March 19: In his address at the Congress Plenary session on Sunday, Congress President Rahul Gandhi took patronage of Mahabharata to accuse RSS and BJP by comparing the organisations to 'Kauravas'. The Gandhi scion slammed the BJP and RSS for destroying institutions, dividing society and generating fear and hatred.


 

Saying that India expects much more and higher standards from the Indian National Congress, the Congress president compared the RSS-BJP combine with the Kauravas from Mahabharata.BJP, he asserted, is the name of an organisation, an organisation designed to fight for power and win elections. The RSS is an organisation that wants to systematically destroy all institutions in India and wants the entire country to be under them.

Rahul claimed that Congress respects institutions like Parliament, media and the judiciary and would always fight to protect them. “India will never allow us to behave like the RSS and the BJP”.

Cheap comments on Swatantryaveer Savarkar

Stating lies as facts, Rahul dragged the great revolutionary Swatantryaveer Savarkar who was convicted and sentenced to 50-year imprisonment and transported on 4 July 1911 to the infamous Cellular Jail in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Unfortunately personally vilifying Savarkar, Rahuls stated that: "Let nobody forget that when Mahatma Gandhi and other Congress leaders were sleeping on the floor of British prisons, ‘their leader’ Savarkar was busy drafting a mercy petition to the British, the Congress president added. In Punjab alone, he claimed, 15,000 Congressmen and women had laid down their lives for the country." 
 
Barbs on Modi- RSS-BJP; nothing new 

In a brutal frontal attack on RSS, BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi in his concluding address to the Congress plenary session mocked the Prime Minister saying that  he and other Congress leaders were human beings and did make mistakes, PM Modi appears to believe that he is an incarnation of God Bhagwan ka Avtar) and cannot make any mistake.

“Had Congress made a mistake like demonetisation, you could trust Dr Manmohan Singh to admit that this was a mistake, but you will never hear PM Modi admit that it was a mistake,” he went on to add.


Deriding the statistics showing that India is today the fastest growing economy in the world, the Congress president dared people to go out and ask the youth in any city what they are engaged in. The answer, he suggested, would invariably be ‘nothing’. Millions of youth are jobless and are hopelessly looking for employment but the PM and his finance minister boast of the fastest growth in the world, he exclaimed.
