Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday launched a witheringly scornful attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and called a symbol of corruption.
“The name Modi symbolises the collusion between India’s biggest businessmen and the Prime Minister. Modi gives Modi 30,000 crores of your Money and in turn, Modi gives Modi money for marketing Modi and fighting elections," the Gandhi scion said.
Speaking at the 84th Congress Plenary Session at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi, Rahul Gandhi likened the "powerful and arrogant" BJP with Kauravas.
“Centuries ago there was a huge battle in Kurukshetra. The Kauravas were powerful and arrogant. The Pandavas were humble and fought for the truth. Like the Kauravas, BJP and RSS are designed to fight for power. Like the Pandavas, Congress is designed to fight for truth,” Rahul said.

The Congress President also fired salvo at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley accusing him of being silent of the scam to save his daughter, who worked for one of the PNB scam accused.
“You can steal Rs 33,000 crore from the banks and the BJP government will protect you. Finance Minister will go silent because he and his daughter work for crony capitalists,” the Congress president said.
He further trained his guns on BJP President Amit Shah and said, “They (people) will accept a man accused of murder as the President of the BJP, but they will never ever accept the same in the Congress Party because they hold Congress in the highest regard.”
However, he admitted to the mistakes of UPA government and said, “The last government we formed did not stand up to the expectations of the people. The people of the country were let down by us.”
In his speech, he assured to break the walls of communication between party workers and leaders and vowed to fill the Congress party with “talented youngsters”.
