Rahul Gandhi's Becoming Congress Party President Postponed For Now

Rahul Gandhi's Becoming Congress Party President Postponed For Now

Holding a massive unplanned road show in the Patidar-dominated and BJP bastion of Mehsana, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Monday evening targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asking why is the "chowkidar" or gatekeeper of the country silent on "immense and unbelievable profit" in Jay Shah's company. At Mela village in Patan, Gandhi broke the security cordon, got off the bus and went into the fields to speak to a few castor farmers. "You won't have to agitate for anything in our government".

"Rahul Gandhi is a failed player in politics".

Earlier, talking to the media he said just like magicians perform tricks which are mere tricks and not real, similarly Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi has been performing tricks in Gujarat on the people.

The Gandhi scion continued his attacks on Prime Minister Modi and lambasted the central government on various fronts like demonetization, the GST, unemployment and corruption.

Earlier in Patan, he was warmly greeted by villagers on his visit to Kungher village. Members of both Patidar groups will then meet Congress leaders and ask them to include the offers in their poll manifesto. Later, he visited the native village of a BJP cabinet Minister in Gujarat, Dilip Thakore, in Harij. Hence, in all the four phases of the Congress' Navsarjan Yatra, Mr Gandhi has not just visited prominent temples of the region, but has also been seen taking an active part in aarti ritual. "No one can silence you" He said: "Hardik Patel, Jignesh Mewani and Alpesh Thakor are just symbols". Gandhi remarked, "Jadugars (magicians) have been earning money through tricks and Modiji too has been doing the same in 22 years". The Congress' Gujarat campaign has tried to project Mr Gandhi as a "simple person" who is connected with and can relate to people at the grass roots. Mehsana is the hometown and the constituency of Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel.
