Congress President Rahul Gandhi today hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a rally in Maharashtra. Gandhi attacked PM Modi making a veiled reference to allotting of the Gandhinagar seat, which traditionally belonged to senior BJP leader L K Advani, to BJP President Amit Shah for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
In his reference, however, Rahul took his recent lying spree a bit further and depicted the decision of giving the ticket to Amit Shah over the 91-year-old BJP veteran as an act of violence.

Gandhi used Advani’s name to mount attacks on PM Modi and while attacking him he crossed the line of decency by using crass language for a senior leader like L K Advani. He said, “Hindu dharm me sabse jaruri hota hai guru. Modi ji ka guru kon hai? Advani ji. Stage se utha k niche fenk diya guru. Joote mar k utara Advani ji ko stage se. Aur fir Hindu Dharm ki baat karte hain (BJP talks of Hinduism. A Guru is supreme in Hinduism. But Modi ji hit his Guru L K Advani with a shoe and threw him out),” said Gandhi.
Apparently, Gandhi imagined this ‘act of violence’ in his head and questioned, “Hindu dharm mein kahan likha hai ki logo ko marna chahiye? Kahan likha hai ki hinsa karni chahiye? Kaha likha hai mujhe dikhao?”(Where is it written in Hinduism that one should beat people up, commit violence on people? Show me).
It was interesting to see that Gandhi was trying to suggest that L K Advani was disrespected by the BJP and PM Modi while himself using the most inappropriate language for such a senior leader.
It is, however, ironical that Rahul, the latest prince of Congress dynasty, who became party president just because of his family name, chosen over dozens of senior and more capable Congress leaders, used LK Advani’s name to further his narrow political attack on PM Modi.
