During an election campaigning on Tuesday, April 22, Rahul Gandhi said, "UPA made some mistakes in the 10-year rule," and also added, "UPA is facing anti-incumbency."
During the poll campaign, Rahul also stated, "The election is a fight between two ideologies and the Opposition is playing divisive politics."
Rahul's statement surfaced at a time when his mother and sister have been campaigning for him and shielding him from tremendous criticism from opposition party leaders including BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
UPA is facing anti-incumbency: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi
Modi's close aide Amit Shah, during an election campaign rally on Tuesday, said, "Sometimes his mother says something, now his sister said something, God forbid, if he becomes PM will he go back to his mummy asking what to do?"
Shah's comment on the Congress Vice President surfaced following Sonia Gandhi's recent remark on Modi. Mrs Gandhi said, "In order to grab the prime minister's chair he has created a crazy situation around the nation."
"It seems as if he has no belief on our socio-constitutional apparatus. Therefore, it makes us to think whether the country will be safe in the hands of such a person who dreams like this. Congress has always sacrificed for the unity of this country," she added.
Meanwhile, Priyanka, who campaigned for her mother at Rae Bareli on Tuesday, slammed Narendra Modi for levelling "cheap and baseless" allegations against members of the Gandhi family.
