Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi lashed out at BJP and RSS on Saturday. In a taunting manner, Rahul Gandhi described BJP as his guru.
Addressing the press conference, Rahul Gandhi said that I consider RSS and BJP as my gurus, they constantly remind me what not to do.
He said that BJP and RSS have given us good training. Rahul said that I want them (BJP) to attack us aggressively. This will help the Congress party to understand its ideology. Describing the Bharat Jodo Yatra as a success, Rahul Gandhi said that he got to learn a lot from it.
Rahul Gandhi said that China and Pakistan are hatching a big conspiracy. The developments in Doklam, Tawang are part of the preparations for something big.
He said that when I attack the government, they say that I am attacking the army. The government should accept its mistakes and not hide behind the armed forces.
The Congress leader said that there is an anti-incumbency atmosphere against the BJP. The opposition will have to effectively work together to prepare an alternative to the BJP. Every leader of the opposition is with the Congress regarding ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, but I understand that there are some political compulsions.
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Saturday that his ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ has been successful and he aims to give a new perspective to the country.
Rahul also claimed that victory for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the next Lok Sabha elections would be very difficult and there is a “massive anti-incumbency atmosphere” against the BJP on the ground.
Speaking to reporters in Delhi, Rahul said, “The information I am getting from the ground shows that it will be difficult for the BJP to win the next election. There is a massive anti-incumbency atmosphere”.
On the question related to the lapse in the security of the yatra, he said that the BJP leader and the government have different criteria on the subject related to his (Rahul’s) security.
Rahul said, “My aim is to give an alternative point of view to the country.”
He alleged that the foreign policy of the Narendra Modi government is illusory.
