New Delhi, Aug 6: The Congress in Chhattisgarh attacked BJP for portraying Sonia Gandhi as a witch in a cartoon on price rise, saying it has crossed the limits of decency.
"We always say that sometimes BJP cross the limits of decency. If you want to criticise the government on price rise, you are welcome but making it personal and attacking individuals is shameful. This shows that more than price rise, they are interested in doing politics," Sandeep Dixit, Congress leader said.
However, BJP refused to accept that the Congress chief was portrayed as a "witch" in a cover-page cartoon published in an in-house magazine of the party in Chhattisgarh.
"The problem with Congress is that they see Sonia Gandhi everywhere. We have not tried to show Sonia Gandhi as Mehangai Dayan (dearness witch) in the magazine," Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, BJP vice president said.
"If we talk about price rise, Congress will say it is an attack on Sonia Gandhi. If we oppose terrorism, they will say it is an attack on Rahul Gandhi. If we oppose Naxalism, they will say it is an attack on Congress. The Congress has not been able to get out of this mindset," he charged.
