NEW DELHI, Feb 24: Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has given a clarion call to the people of India to question the governments of the day, whether in states or the Centre, on issues paramount to them and to ignore the superficial "Toolkits" story being sold by the BJP day in and day out.
Elaborating on his call, Congress chief spokesman and general secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala on Wednesday stressed the urgency to focus on the serious issues of the country instead of the way the BJP is insulting India by dividing it on the issues of north and south.
Hitting back at Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath for creating a north-south row during his visit to Kerala, Rahul wanted the people not to get trapped in the divisive politics. Adityanath on Wednesday asserted that it was Rahul who was playing divisive politics by making fun of the people of Uttar Pradesh in Kerala.
Surjewala said Rahul has laid stress on the issue-based politics instead of politics on issues. He said Rahul wanted a religion of politics instead of politics of religion, politics of uniting all instead of appeasement, regretting that even in this the BJP issued its own "toolkit" to divide north and south.
On the Congress criticism of naming Ahmedabad's stadium after PM Modi, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad hit back at what he dubbed as Gandhi’s double standards, asking if they had ever praised the world's tallest statue in Kevadia in Gujarat which is also named after India's former home minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. "Have they visited it? What more can be said," he remarked.
