Cong mocks at cancelled Modi rally

The Delhi Congress on Monday attacked the BJP for cancelling its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s rally at Ramlila Ground. 

The party leaders said that fearing a less footfall, they decided to cancel the rally.“The BJP leaders got afraid after the successful rally of Rahul Gandhi in Ambedkar Nagar on Sunday. They knew that no one is going to attend Modi’s rally, so they cancelled it,” party leader Haroon Yusuf said.

The BJP, however, said the rally was cancelled four days ago and the proposed 3-D rally was postponed due to technical glitches. 

He said the AAP has lost its base in Delhi and Congress will have direct fights with BJP in all the seven MP seats in Delhi. 

‘Ads by black money’

Congress leaders also accused the BJP for putting their posters at prime location with the help of “black money”.

“There are hoardings in the city with charges of more than four lakh rupees a month. The BJP should clarify about the source of money, which is being paid for these sites. They are collecting money from all black marketers and spending in the election campaigns,” Congress state unit chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma said.

Reacting to the allegations, BJP leader V K Malhotra reminded Rahul’s “flop rally” on the same ground before the Assembly elections.

“Modi’s rally was cancelled due to his busy schedule. The Congress must remember about Rahul Gandhi’s flop rally at the same ground before the Assembly elections,” he said.
