During an election rally in Jharkhand on Wednesday, April 9, Rahul Gandhi asserted that Modi can go to any extent to secure the PM chair for himself. Modi can even divide the nation into pieces, claimed Rahul while warning people of the country.
Rahul was quoted as saying, "Modi wants to become the PM and he can do anything for it. He will divide the nation into pieces, make people fight against each other."

He also criticised BJP's PM nominee over the snoopgate allegations against the former. Reiterating his allegations against Modi, Rahul said, "The Gujarat Chief Minister gets women's phones tapped, sends policemen behind them and then we see posters talking about empowerment of women."
Earlier Congress President Sonia Gandhi too had said, "This is the same BJP that gives many lectures on religion and ethics. You have witnessed how the personal lives of women were played with in their rule, and how much shame it led to across the country. Various atrocities are being committed on our sisters in Gujarat. This is their real face."
The 'Snoopgate' scandal surfaced when a senior Gujarat police officer submitted tapes of secretly-recorded phone conversations in 2009 to the CBI. The conversations allegedly indicate that the woman was being tailed at the instructions of a "saheb" or big boss. The Congress has alleged that this man is Mr Modi, who is the Chief Minister of Gujarat.The BJP said the woman's father, who was known to Mr Modi, was worried about her safety and had asked for her to be protected. The father, in a letter, verified that claim.
