Irani calls Congress "sultante of corruption"

  • Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi at a public meeting at Raska village of Kheda district in Gujarat on Monday

Adityanath said while a target of 24 lakh houses for the rural poor had been set by the prime minister for the Uttar Pradesh government till 2019, and that 9.70 lakh houses had to be built in the first year but the Samajwadi Party government did nothing. The party has been on a steady decline since 2014.

The Congress Vice President slammed the Modi government over demonetisation and the manner in which the Goods and Services Tax was rolled out on July 1. The Congress leader has hit out at the BJP government over issues of jobs and economic growth, which slowed down last quarter to its lowest rate in three years. Congress has also asked for Amit Shah's resignation as BJP president, citing how Bangaru Laxman had resigned as party chief after he was shown taking money in a sting operation.

However, Rahul Gandhi is the same Gandhi as ever, the most prominent and visible Opposition leader.

Attacking Gandhi over his remarks, Irani said, "He has clearly indicated that his party and he prefer the idea of vote bank politics over vikas". "Rahul Baba has left Amethi in crisis despite being chosen from there", he added. "Rahul Gandhi will not be able to even count them".

"Even after 70 years (of Independence), if Prime Minister Narendra Modi has to do development work in the country then Rahul Gandhi should explain why Modi has to do this work even though the family members of Rahul Gandhi were in power for long".

Turkey advances into Syria's Idlib in major offensive against jihadists
At the same time, the Turkish military could launch an operation within Idlib. The zone would be monitored by Turkish soldiers.

"You have trusted the Gandhi-Nehru family for 60 years".

Congress has taken a big risk by churning out a campaign which will eventually end up pitting Rahul Gandhi against Narendra Modi.

It is not an easy task and he has to be a 24/ 7 politician to produce results and ready his foot soldiers. "Gujarat of Sardar. It is a cultured Gujarat", Anandiben said, demanding Gandhi's apology for the statement. Looks like this off the cuff comment from Rahul Gandhi may snowball into a major political storm before the next Gujarat election. It is in this context, Congress must revaluate whether high pitched anti-Modi campaigns serves well in Gujarat or a more low-key campaign, using the faces of state faces which avoids polarisation on the basis of personality.

The corruption and money laundering of Amit Shah's son had been a hot topic nationwide. Many would argue that politics can not be done without taking a risk. While Sonia Gandhi will continue to be the mentor of the party, Rahul Gandhi will have to take the credit or the discredit of the party's performance hence forth.
