After a criminal case was registered against Imran Masood,Congress’ Saharanpur candidate,and he was arrested for his hate speech against Modi,Rahul Gandhi’s Saharanpur rally was cancelled. Imran Masood has stated he would chop Modi into pieces and that Gujarat has only 4 percent Muslims but Uttar Pradesh there are 42 percent Muslims. When questioned,Imran said all he meant was he would teach Modi a lesson and that he would say sorry only after Modi says so for 2002 riots in Gujarat.The Congress party seemed sidelining itself from Masood’s controversial remark to the extent that Rahul Gandhi who was scheduled to address a rally in the area cancelled his visit.
Who knows,the party cadres might be feeling at ease after Rahul cancelling his visit. After all, its a tough ask to gather crowd for Rahul.
Addressing one of his rallies,Modi attacked Arvind Kejriwal directly by calling him a Pakistani Agent. He said India had three AK’s emerging as Pakistani commanders on Indian side – First,AK47 which was used by Pakistan to bleed India.Second,AK Antony,the Union Defence Minister,who had stated in the Parliament that people who beheaded Indian soldiers were wearing the dress of Pakistan army, while army said Pakistanis had come.Last July,Pakistani army had intruded in the Indian side and beheaded two Indian soldiers. The third,Modi mentioned,was AK49 which has launched a new party recently. This was a mock at Arvind Kejriwal’s 49 day old govt in Delhi.
AAP has emerged as a strong vote-cutter for BJP in 2014 which was quite visible in Delhi polls where BJP could not make its Govt despite Congress losing real bad.
