Everything about BJP is a lie, says Rahul Gandhi

The Congress will analyse in detail why it failed to dislodge the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which has ruled Gujarat for 22 long years, and the road ahead.

Rahul Gandhi also asked why Modi was "silent" on the allegations made by the Opposition over Rafale deal and financial irregularities of a firm linked to BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jay Shah.

Mr. Modi and Mr. Vala are said to be close since the time the latter vacated the Rajkot II constituency to enable Mr. Modi to contest byelections and become member of the Gujarat Assembly in 2002.

The Congress Working Committee (CWC), the highest decision-making body of the party, on Friday accused the BJP of "concocting a conspiracy" in the 2G spectrum case and demanded its apology as well as from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. When we went to Gujarat and we spoke to the people of Gujarat, they said there is no model.

He said the 2G spectrum verdict has been a "vindication" of the party's stand. People of Gujarat told us there is no model. He termed the Gujarat campaign as "unique" and "a real eye-opener" for him, where he got to know how the BJP designs campaigns and "uses hatred and untruth" to fight elections.

The party workers' meet will be held at Gujarat University Convention Hall at GNBC ground in Ahmedabad.

The party lost power in Himachal Pradesh too. "The then CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) Vinod Rai had announced that the government had suffered a loss of ₹1,76,000 crore", he said. The CWC meeting was attended by top party leaders like Ahmed Patel, Ambika Soni, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Karan Singh, Janardan Dwivedi, Kamal Nath, BK Hari Prasad, CP Joshi, Motilal Vora, Mohsina Kidwai, Mallikarjun Kharge and others, besides state incharges. Rebel JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav too took turn to congratulate Rahul on the improved show of his party in the Gujarat polls, dubbing it a "great success".

Interacting with mediapersons here at his party office here, Mr Owaisi said the temple politics of both parties indicated that they were deliberately attempting to politically marginalise Muslims.
