BJP president Rajnath Singh has said that his party would realise Mahatma Gandhi's dreams, something which Congress could not do.

Addressing a campaign rally at Kalyan in the district last night, Rajnath said Gandhiji had called for dissolution of Congress after the Independence, but Congress leaders did not heed his advice.

BJP would fulfil the dreams of the father of the nation, he said, promising a corruption-free regime and several reforms.

"I have toured the entire country and have seen an overwhelming support for Narendra Modi as people want a change," he said.

In the next ten years, India would become not only an economic power, but 'jagat-guru' of the world, Rajnath said.

Referring to the memoirs of journalist Sanjaya Baru (former media adviser to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh) which claim that the Prime Minster had to bow to the wishes of the Congress president on certain occasions, Singh sought a clarification from Sonia Gandhi.
