Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday hit out at the BJP following the court verdict in the 2G spectrum case, saying the ruling party's "foundation was based on lies" and accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of being silent on the "sudden spurt" in turnover in the business of BJP chief Amit Shah's son.
The sarcastic remarks came a day after Gandhi chaired his first meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting as party President, in which he roundly slammed the BJP. "The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies, their whole structure is about lies.BJP's entire foundation is based on lies".
Rahul Gandhi also hinted that there are certain people within the Congress who were working against the party during the Gujarat assembly elections and promised that action will be taken against them.
He said: "If you see the Modi model in Gujarat, it was a lie, clearly".
Rahul became the party President on December 16, two days before the results of Gujarat Assembly elections were declared. "At every step, they were trying to polarise". "How prime minister Modi, Arun Jaitley and the BJP stands exposed today with the 2G verdict by special CBI Court". The scriptwriter of the story was former CAG Vinod Rai and the director, producer, propaganda chairman and secretaries were BJP leaders. "BJP maligned the country and the Congress party for years together making false allegations of corruption as their principle strategy to gain power", Randeep Surjewala said during a press conference here.
Whatever Mr Gandhi might say, his party will not return to power as people know its corrupt face, Mr Rao added. "All lies, the truth of the 2G is out there now", he told reporters after the meeting.
It was among the major corruption scandals that came to light during the second term of the UPA government headed by former prime minister Manmohan Singh.
