Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi declared his love for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing students in Pune. “I have no hatred for him, I love him,” he had said.
Rahul answered an array of questions, ranging from economy to healthcare and education. While answering a question on whether politics can be devoid of love and affection, Rahul said, “I love Narendra Modi. I have no hatred or anger towards him. But he has anger towards me.”
Meanwhile, addressing a rally in Morigaon in Assam, the BJP President targeted former prime minister Manmohan Singh and termed him ‘Mauni baba’. Shah said, “Mauni Baba Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister for 10 years. He went to the Rajya Sabha via Assam.
