Modi vs Rahul: Congress says 'BJP divides, we unite'

New Delhi, Oct.27 (ANI): The Congress Party on Sunday hit out at Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, and said that he does not address issues relevant to the nation.

While making a comparison between Rahul Gandhi's rally here and Modi's rally in Patna, Congress spokesperson Meem Afzal said that it is once again proved that the saffron outfit is trying to divide the nation, while the Congress wants to unite.

"Modi's speech did not address the topic of development. Even today he used words like 'Shehzada', 'Sikandar' in his rally. Rahul Gandhi's rally on the other hand, spoke of development, youth, and empowerment. He spoke about Delhi, which is a role model for all other states," he said.

"It is once again proved that BJP is trying to divide the nation and Congress wants to unite. I can say that all the youth are supporting Rahul Gandhi," he added.

He pointed out that Modi has never proposed his plan for development in any of his rallies.

"In whatever speeches Modi has delivered, he never proposed his plan to the nation. Let us know what kind of nation he wants to build," he added.

Earlier in the day, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi addressed large gatherings in Delhi and Patna respectively.

"Stop practicing dynastic politics and I will stop using the word Shehzada. ... Dynasty politics and opportunism are enemies of democracy," Modi said at Gandhi Maidan in Patna.

While addressing a rally here in Mangolpuri area, Rahul Gandhi said that said that the Congress party wants to empower the poor.

"No one can ever say that there's been no development in Delhi, not even the Opposition. Whatever laws we make, it is for the common man. Whatever we will do, we will do for the poor, the weak. This is our fight. Our politics is for the poor, and we want to empower the poor," said Gandhi.

He further lauded the efforts of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, and said that the party has seen a significant change in areas of transport, education and power. (ANI)
