    BJP targets Rahul Gandhi: Congress today came under fire for engaging in "doublespeak" as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) charged that while its Vice President Rahul Gandhi was on the one hand opposing the NDA government's bid to improve rural infrastructure, he was attacking it over the issue of a food park project in Amethi on the other. "The case of Amethi food park and its cancellation is the result of a decision taken by the UPA government. Gandhi is playing politics on the issue. While on the one hand he is seeking setting up of the food park, he is opposing industrialisation through setting up of industrial corridors on the other that would create jobs and promote rural infrastructure," said BJP.

    Praveen Togadia attacks PM Narendra Modi over "saree, shawl" diplomacy with Pak

    Terming India's policy towards Pakistan as a "failure", VHP chief Praveen Togadia today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should put an end to the "saree, shawl" diplomacy following the Gurdaspur terror attack and exhibit a "strong will" like Indira Gandhi to deal with it. "Diplomacy of saree, shawl and mango is enough for now. India should stop all dialogue with Pakistan and start preparing to teach a lesson to the country, which is sending AK 47-armed Jihadists for carrying out attacks," Togadia told reporters. Condemning yesterday's terror attack in Punjab's Gurdaspur district, he said "India's foreign policy with regard to Pakistan has failed. India's failure in punishing the plotters of Mumbai attacks encouraged them (Pakistan) to carry out more attacks in our country." Taking a jibe at the Modi government, he said VHP had confidence that under the BJP rule, Dawood Ibrahim will be brought back to India and punished "but Dawood was not brought to India instead Pakistan sent more terrorists to spread terrorism." Describing Indira Gandhi as a leader with a "strong will", the VHP leader said Modi should show same determination while dealing with Pakistan. (PTI) (28/07/2015)

      Rahul hi is useless man who has no capacity to lead Congress party. He is busy in travelling abroad for merrymaking & is not attending Parliament. Congress leaders are making hue & cry over scam India statement by Modi which is factual position which resulted in complete stoppage of FDI during UPA govts which was responsible for gigantic scams like Coalgate, 2G, CWG, Defencegate, Purchases of aircraft for AI. This corrupt act of UPA shattered confidence of foreign investors on India. Ultimately people ousted Congress party from Lok Sabha. BJP govt should ensure strongest corruption law to be introduced with provision to seize all ets of corrupts since corrupt politicians of country have now become worst than naxalites in looting public money which completely paralyzed development of country in last 10 years. The people should also act in sensible manner by ousting corrupt & non-performing parties of country otherwise economic situation of country will never improve.
