Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, BJP's candidate from Patna Sahib constituency in Bihar, on Thursday launched a scathing attack on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, saying that he has taken the Indian politics to a new low of "thooko aur bhaago (spit and run away)".
Speaking exclusively to News Nation, Prasad took a jibe at the Congress saying that a family where the son, his mother and brother-in-law are out on bail are making allegations on others.

Slamming the charges levelled by Rahul over the Rafale fighter jet deal, Prasad said: "Why couldn't they finalise the Rafale deal in eight years? If we had Rafale, then we would have attacked the terror camps in Balakot without entering the Pakistani terriroty."
