Hoshiarpur, May 10: Rahul Gandhi, the Congress party general secretary said that Afzal Guru (who is on death row after being convicted for the 2001 Parliament attack) will be hanged when his 'turn comes'.

"Afzal Guru will be hanged when his turn comes. Ironically, he is the disciple of (JeM chief) Masood Azhar, the terrorist released by the BJP government in the Kandahar hijack case. The BJP tends to forget what it has done in the past," he said in an election meeting in Mohali town near Chandigarh.

He accused BJP of dividing the country on communal and regional lines and of neglecting the poor people. "The BJP is trying to divide Hindus and Muslims in Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat while it is trying to split Hindus and Christians in Orissa. Women are being beaten up in Karnataka while migrants are being driven out of Maharashtra. We don't want two Indias."

He added that India need a government for aam admi (common man).
