BJP is 'Lie Hard' - Rahul takes pot shot a la Hollywood

The dominant sentiment at Friday's Congress Working Committee meeting was that Gujarat had shown Rahul Gandhi as capable of infusing new energy into the party and that the people had begun to see through Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "false propaganda". "I think 2G has been vindication (of Congress' stand)", Rahul Gandhi told reporters when asked about the special CBI court's Thursday verdict acquitting all the accused. Gandhi also asked why Modi was "silent" on the allegations made by the Opposition over Rafale deal and financial irregularities of a firm linked to BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jay.

According to Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken, who led the march, Congress MPs would voice their protest inside Parliament and while the party's workers would protest on the streets to take this fight to the logical conclusion.

Our party played a very positive role in keeping everybody together. "3-4 months ago, people were questioning if the Congress could even contest elections in Gujarat", the Congress leader said.

He claimed that whatever Gandhi might say, his party would not return to power as people know its "corrupt face".

Mr Modi, Mr Jaitley and the BJP leadership should come forward to own up their sinister maligning machinations and apologize to the nation, " the CWC said.

While Sonia Gandhi continues to be the CPP leader, there are mixed views among leaders on whether she should soon hand over the leadership of the parliamentary wing of the party as well.
