Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday mocked at BJP by tweeting ‘Dear BJP, dare mat (Dear BJP, don’t be scared)’.

Mr Gandhi tweeted the comment after BJP alleged that Mr Gandhi had violated the model code of conduct by linking his party symbol, which is a ‘hand’, with religious figures during his speech.

With the allegations over Gandhi, Bhartiy Janata Party approached the Election Commission to demand freezing the poll symbol of Congress party.

Rahul’s tweet on social media came after Union ministers Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Prakash Javadekar filed a complaint with the Election Commission against Gandhi as well as sought freezing of the poll symbol of Congress party.

After lodging the complaint with Election Commission, Mr Naqvi interacted with the media reporters.

Mr Naqvi said, “The grand old party Congress’ grand new leader has tried to give communal colour to the elections by his statement in which he co-related the Congress’ ‘hand’ with various religious figures.”

The Union Minister further said, “This is a clear cut case of corrupt practice. There should be action against both Congress and its leader.”
