BJP ridicules Rahul's Italy visit at election time

Batting for Congress President, National Conference President and sitting Member Parliament from Srinagar Dr Farooq Abdullah on Saturday said Rahul Gandhi needs time to grow in the organisation.

Rahul announced his decision on Thursday to visit his "93-year-old nani" over the Holi weekend. "I got a WhatsApp message saying there is an election in Italy", he quipped when asked about the Congress president's visit to meet his grandmother.

"Yeh natural leader nahi hai, yeh paristhitiyon ki den hain". "No leader can leave his party workers in hard times".

"Is it a crime for someone to visit his own grandmother?"

After the Assam Assembly elections in 2016, he became education and health minister in Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal's BJP-led government in the state.Sarma had earlier also criticised Rahul for his style of functioning alleging the Congress president was not a serious politician and "he was busy feeding his dog" when the Assam's then Congress government, where he was part, wanted to discuss urgent issues of the state.

The BJP has created history by winning the Tripura Assembly Elections with a thumping majority.

Shillong: Meghalaya PWD minister and Congress candidate Mazel Ampareen Lyngdoh wins from East Shillong constituency defeating her nearest BJP rival Neil Antonio War by over 5,000 votes.

Rahul Gandhi addressed a token rally in Tripura on the last day of campaign on February 16, while he did not bother to visit Nagaland.
