In rural Gujarat, Congress got more seats, BJP more votes

After putting the BJP in a tight corner with his barbs in the run-up to Gujarat polls and accusing the saffron party of having an "architecture and foundation based on lies", Mr Gandhi on Saturday said that if ever the BJP has a film franchise, it would be called "Lie Hard", drawing an analogy with the famous Hollywood film series, Die Hard.

He claimed that whatever Gandhi might say, his party would not return to power as people know its "corrupt face".

On Friday, Mr Gandhi had said that the foundation of the ruling party was based on "lies" and Mr Modi's "Gujarat model" was "flawed and fake".

Former telecom minister A Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and all other accused were recently acquitted by a special court in the 2G spectrum scam case.

"Members expressed concern about the (standards of) decency in public discourse and political morality in democracy if the Prime Minister himself stooped so low as to accuse his predecessor of anti-national activities", Congress communications chief Randeep Surjewala said.

He said: "If you see the Modi model in Gujarat, it was a lie, clearly".

MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for visiting temples - "mandir hopping - while campaigning in Gujarat and ignoring mosques and dargahs".

Rahul said, "It (loss in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh) was disappointing" but "it was pleasing to see the Congress fight hatred and anger with respect, love and courage". Our party played a very positive role in keeping everybody together. BJP, particularly Mr Narendra Modi, Mr Arun Jaitley and their stooge, Vinod Rai created a "fallacious web of allegations of corruption". The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies. "All lies, the truth of the 2G is out there now", he told reporters after the meeting.

He further said that the manner in which Congress campaigned for Gujarat has made the country think that they were not campaigning for elections but were on a temple run.
