Rajnath Singh attacks Congress 'family'

Speaking at a party gathering at Ramlila Maidan here, BJP president Rajnath Singh attacked the Congress and statements made by its leaders, saying that such parties face inherent problems as “when the family disintegrates, the party also vanishes”. 

Singh was perhaps provoked to take on the Congress owing to former UPA minister Mani Shankar Aiyar’s tea-seller jibe at Modi during the AICC session on Friday. “That reflected the feudal mindset of the Congress”, Singh remarked. 

He shared the dais with other party top brass including L K Advani, Narendra Modi, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, M M Joshi and BJP chief ministers Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Raman Singh and Manohar Parrikar.

Vasundhara Raje could not attend as she was not well.

Responding to Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s charge on the BJP indulging in communal politics, Singh launched a counterattack, accusing them of dividing the people on religious lines.

“I want to remind Sonia Gandhi that it was Manmohan Singh who had said that Muslims have the first right on India's resources. If there is any party which takes decisions based on religious considerations, it is the Congress. If there is any communal party, it is the Congress,” said the party president.
