Launching a scathing attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said that ruling party only believes in one ‘feeling’ and that it originates from Nagpur. “BJP believes that there should be no expression of any feeling other than the feeling that begins and ends in Nagpur,” Rahul Gandhi said. Gandhi also met DMK chief Karunanidhi at latter’s Gopalapuram residence in Chennai.  He also accused Narendra Modi government of mishandling the situation in Kashmir. “Around six, seven months ago, Mr. Arun Jaitley came to see me and I told him that they are mishandling Kashmir and they are going to set Kashmir on fire. And Jaitley brushed me aside and said that Kashmir is peaceful,” Rahul said. Rahul’s statement comes a day after he had accused Modi government of suppressing voices of a ‘billion Indians’. “We will never allow silencing of more than a billion India voices… We are not going to stand and watch while they peddle their ridiculous ideas,” he said. “All of us on the stage, people in the crowd, and all those watching will not let the RSS or Narendra Modi impose one idea on this country,” Gandhi said.

Rahul, who had gone to attend a function organised by DMK on Karunanidhi’s 94th birthday and diamond jubilee of his legislative career here, he said the nonagenarian leader was loved by millions of people in Tamil Nadu. The Congress vice president, while praising Karunanidhi’s service to the state, said, “When Karunanidhi speaks, it isn’t only he is speaking, when he opens mouth it is the voice of people of Tamil Nadu that he is speaking,” ANI added further. Apart from Rahul Gandhi, the function was attended by several top opposition leaders including Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, CPI(M) and CPI General Secretaries Sitaram Yechury and S Sudhakar Reddy, Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’ Brien and Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy, among others.

    Despite all the rhetoric RaGa has not been able to provide effective leadership to Congress. Criticism for its sake only may not take any one anywhere. Ground work is needed. An MP/MLA/MLC/Gram Pradhan of any party can very well improve the conditions of his/her area at least, if really interested.

      Rahul hi is immature, inexperienced and liability for Congress party who is responsible for defeat of party in different states. He should immediately be expelled from party otherwise the future of rest of other Congress leaders will be sealed as only few states are left for the party. Karnataka is in queue which will be ousted in coming embly elections due in 2018 due to corrupt and worst governance. Rahul is also responsible for humiliating defeat of Akhilesh party in UP. Similar will be fate of all parties in future who will align with Congress in future.

          "Shri Rahul hi attacks BJP; says saffron part only listens to voices from Nagpur." This is a good observation, whether one agrees with that or not. But does it not remind one of similar criticism of the Congress party, which, it is often said, listens to voices of ‘High Command’, which means opinion of Smt. Sonia hi or in rare cases, Shri Rahul hi? If one goes back to past, BJP used to criticize the Communist Party of India saying that it listens to voices from Russia’s Communist party. So this ‘fact finding’ game goes on, it appears.
