Panaji, Jan 14: In a scathing allegation, the main opposition Congress alleged that the burqa clad women in the audience of Narendra Modi's Goa rally were nothing but members of the RSS. The party also suggested that this was done to give the impression of large minority audience participating in the rally.

BJP, however, snubs the issue saying that the Congress is insecured of its victory and is therefore levying such allegations.

"RSS workers wore burqas provided to them by BJP leaders and sat in a group at Modi's rally to project that minority community has also participated in it," said Manohar Asgaonkar, the state Congress spokesman in a press conference that was also attended by state unit president John Fernandes.

Asgaonkar further said that the burqa clad 'women' were planted across the crowd to give the impression that many of them were drawn to the charisma of the party's Prime Ministrial candidate Narendra Modi.

BJP spokesperson Wilfred Mesquita hits back saying,"Any opposition political party would have got frustrated looking at the sea of crowd for the rally." "Congress has realised that they have lost both the Goa Lok Sabha seats and that's why they are making such statements," he further added.

This is not the first time, Congress has been targeting Modi's rallies ever since he has been declared the Prime Ministrial candidate. Earlier, Digvijay Singh had said that the BJP was diktating dress code for the minority communities in the Jaipur rally. He also claimed that a real estate firm footed a bill for 10,000 burqas for Modi's rally.
