Reacting to Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s claims that PM Modi is losing the 2019 general elections, the BJP further said that this was nothing but Congress’ frustration. “Rahul Gandhi is scared that is why he moved south this time. Rao said Congress party has been soft towards terrorism, ” said Rao hitting back at the Congress chief.

Rao on Friday had attacked MP chief minister Kamal Nath and had alleged that the Congress dispensation in the state is “minting money and diverting government funds. Rs 281 crore unaccounted cash was traced from his close associates”.

Describing Madhya Pradesh as a new ATM of Congress, Rao had alleged that as per entries in a diary traced by Income Tax Department, senior Congress leaders Digvijay Singh and Randeep Surjewala also got a cut from this unaccounted cash. Thereafter, the Congress had dismissed the charge, saying it was a sign of desperation of the ruling party.
