Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi Campaigns In Gujarat

He will also visit Gopinathji Mandir in Botad district a day after controversy broke over his name was found written on the entry register meant for non-Hindus in Somnath Temple. Any other image being circulated is fabricated. "(Gujarat demands answers for 22 years of BJP)". But an unfazed prime minister still maintains that he is fighting black money, says Rahul Gandhi.

Congress will hold a press conference at Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan, Ahmedabad to address corruption and irregularities brewing in Gujarat under BJP's watch, tweeted Randeep Surjewala. Rahul's great-grandfather, Jawaharlal Nehru, was strongly opposed to his colleagues, Vallabhbhai Patel's and KM Munshi's efforts to rebuild historic Somnath temple destroyed by Islamic invaders, dismissing these efforts as smacking of "Hindu revivalism". "Will the Prime Minister tell, whether it will take another 45 years to fulfil the promise?" "Today some people are remembering Somanth, I have to ask them - Have you forgotten your history?"

BJP strongman Yogi Adityanath said that Rahul Gandhi could have checked the Somnath temple register himself. Your family members, our first PM, was not happy with the idea of a temple being built there. After 22 long years, the Congress is banking on anti-incumbency and the slump in economy to make a comeback in the state. When Dr Rajendra Prasad was to come to inaugurate the Somnath Temple, Pandit Nehru expressed his displeasure. Referring to the 2015 stir for quotas in education and jobs in which 14 Patidars were killed in police firing, Gandhi said if anyone raised his voice, he either got beaten up or had to face bullets in Gujarat. Visavdar is a Patidar-dominated constituency in the politically crucial Saurashtra region.

Rahul Gandhi seeks explanation from the Prime Minister in the Rafale deal, asks on what basis was Rafale favoured over Hindustan Aeronautics Limited.

Mr Modi also said that the "Congress loves asking me - Modiji, what did you do? First, is there a difference in the cost of the planes in the first and the second contract (signed with a French firm), please give the reply in yes or no".
