Rahul Gandhi riles BJP with 'Lie Hard' film barb


Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday hit out at the BJP following the court verdict in the 2G spectrum case, saying the ruling party's "foundation was based on lies" and accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of being silent on the "sudden spurt" in turnover in the business of BJP chief Amit Shah's son.

"You all know the truth now about 2G, the truth is in front of you", Rahul Gandhi told reporters after chairing a meeting of the Congress Working Committee - his first since becoming party chief. When assembly or parliament elections will start, I will also show them what a "yatra" is?

"I had asked for ticket from the Congress party, but they did not gave it so I had to contest as an independent", Rathod said.

Rahul became the party President on December 16, two days before the results of Gujarat Assembly elections were declared.

The Delhi Congress held a demonstration asking Modi to apologise.

"I have given outside support and as of now I have not joined the BJP", he said in reply to a question.

The Congress on Saturday alleged that the 2G case was a "conspiracy" wherein an entire campaign of "insinuations and calumny" was systematically built to tarnish the UPA government, and sought an apology from the BJP. "The then CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) Vinod Rai had announced that the government had suffered a loss of ₹1,76,000 crore", he said. "BJP maligned the country and the Congress party for years together making false allegations of corruption as their principle strategy to gain power", Randeep Surjewala said during a press conference here.

While Sonia Gandhi continues to be the CPP leader, there are mixed views among leaders on whether she should soon hand over the leadership of the parliamentary wing of the party as well. "The entire 2G trial has been directly monitored by the Supreme Court with reports of its progress submitted to it on a monthly basis". Without naming anyone, some leaders raised the issue of enforcing discipline in the party and action against errant leaders, to which Rahul Gandhi agreed, the sources said.
