Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said the success of the Grand Alliance in Bihar was a victory against the RSS, the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“This is not a victory against NDA, but against RSS, BJP and Modi. It is a message against dividing Hindus and Muslims,” a smiling Gandhi told reporters.
He also congratulated Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Prasad over the victory.
The Congress party was in alliance with the Janata Dal-United and RJD for 243 seats in the eastern state.
The party’s performance has surprised many pundits as it is expected to win 24 seats 20 more than it won in 2010 elections.
Rahul asked Modi to stop touring foreign countries and instead focus on delivering his poll promises made during the Lok Sabha elections in 2014.
He said, “PM Modi and RSS must give up anger, will be good for country and Modiji himself. Stop your foreign tours and spend more time in wiping the tears of Indians who are suffering. Ek saal se gaadi ruk gayi hai, accelator on kijiye and gaadi chalayiye, warna janata darwaaza khol kar bahar phenk degi.”
