New Delhi: Congress leader Kamal Nath on Monday, in a fresh attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asked why is latter showing so much concern towards Rahul Gandhi? Talking to reporters, Nath said, “He (PM Modi) should give an account of himself. He should answer why is he showing so much concerned towards Rahul Gandhi? Why he does not talk about himself? Why he doesn’t talk about issues like youths, farmers, unemployment, suicide?
The political parties have been campaigning continuously in the poll-bound states. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing rallies in Rajasthan which is scheduled to go on polls on December 7.
Earlier in the day, MPCC (Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee) chief Kamal Nath hit back at the Prime Minister asking him to name a single freedom fighter from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Nath lambasted both PM Modi and MP chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan at his hometown Chhindwara while addressing rallies.
The Congress leader had claimed that it was the grand old party that fought the British for the Independence of India. ” I wish to know if Modiji can name a single freedom fighter from his party,” a leading news portal quoted Nath as saying.
Nath had also launched a scathing attack on Shivraj Singh Chouhan over farmers’ suicides. He had said, “The chief minister calls himself as ‘Kisan Ka Beta’ but farmers’ suicides were “more or less the same as those being witnessed in Africa”.
A few days ago, while addressing a rally in Chhindwara, PM Modi had accused Nath of winning from the area but “doing business” Ghaziabad and Nagpur.
Earlier on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had attacked Rahul Gandhi and accused him of defending those who were abusing his mother.
“Two days ago they dragged my mother’s name during a rally and today I read in social media that they had dragged my father’s name who died 30 years ago and had nothing to do with politics, and ‘Namdaar’ (Gandhi) is defending them,” PM said during an election meeting.
Rajasthan Assembly Election 2018 will be held on December 7. The counting of votes will be held on December 11. There are 200 assembly constituencies in Rajasthan. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had won 163 seats and the Congress 23 seats in the 14th assembly election held in 2013.
