PM Narendra Modi not invincible: Sonia, Rahul; UPA Chairperson reminds BJP of Vajpayee defeat in 2004

Friday, April 12, 2019

Rae Bareli (UP): Top Congress leaders Sonia and Rahul Gandhi yesterday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "not invincible" with the former reminding the BJP about the defeat of the then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 2004 despite the party's 'India Shining' campaign.

Without naming Modi, Rahul Gandhi, the Congress president, also called Modi an "arrogant" leader.

Sonia and Rahul Gandhi were talking to reporters after the UPA chairperson filed her nomination papers from the Rae Bareli constituency seeking a fifth term from her hometurf in Uttar Pradesh.

When Sonia Gandhi was asked to comment on BJP believing that Modi was invincible, she replied, "not at all...Don't forget 2004... Vajpayeeji was invincible but we won", recalling the 'India Shining' campaign of the BJP.

Vajpayee, who headed the BJP-led NDA government, was defeated in 2004 by Sonia Gandhi-led Congress, despite predictions that he would win another term with his 'India Shining' campaign.

Rahul Gandhi also intensified his attack on the prime minister, a day after the Supreme Court agreed to hear review petitions on its Rafale verdict and said he was "not invincible" which will be proved after the Lok Sabha elections.

"There have been many many people in Indian history who have had the arrogance to believe that they are invincible that they are bigger than people of India.

Mr. Narendra Modi has done nothing for the people of India in the last 5 years. His invisibility will be in full view after election results," he said.

In a setback to the Centre, the Supreme Court Wednesday agreed to hear petitions for a review of its verdict in the Rafale fighter jet deal on the basis of "leaked" secret documents by dismissing its preliminary objections.
