BJP national president takes dig at Congress MP

Wayanad, Apr 19 (UNI) BJP national president J P Nadda on Frida took a dig at senior Congress leader and MP Rahul Gandhi, claiming that he is contesting from Wayanad in Kerala because he knows that he will lose if he contests from his own constituency Amethi in Uttar Pradesh in this Lok Sabha polls.
Addressing a roadshow in Sulthan Bathery as part of electioneering for BJP state president and NDA candidate K Surendran, he alleged that Rahul Gandhi's politics is without a proper stance.
He also claimed that "Rahul Gandhi is not confident of contesting from his own constituency at Ameti. His alliance with anti-nationals, banned Popular Front of India (PFI) political party, Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), is because he has no faith in people of the nation.
Nadda further claimed that sitting MP from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi is not talking about anything about the country.
He said, "Rahul Gandhi is under investigation in National Herald corruption case, that is why he was protecting corrupt people and implementing family politics and his hallmark is politics of appeasement."
Rahul Gandhi is fighting against NDA with CPI leader D Raja as a member of INDIA bloc in New Delhi, while Raja's wife Annie Raja is contesting against Rahul in Wayanad as Left Democratic Front (LDF) candidate, he said and claimed that this proves that Rahul Gandhi has no political stance.
Nadda further claimed that "the Lotus will bloom in Wayanad to strengthen progress of the country. India has become fifth largest economy during the Narendra Modi's 10-year rule.
This time India will grow to be the third largest economic power in the world and ensure overall development of the country, he claimed.
Listing out Modi's achievements, BJP chief said that women were given free gas connection through Ujjwala Yojana. 10 lakh people in Kerala got drinking water through Jal Jeevan Mission, crores of toilets were built under Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, four crore houses were constructed under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana in the country, out of these two lakh houses were built in Kerala, health insurance of Rs five lakh has been given to poor people under Ayushman Bharat scheme, he added.
Earlier, Nadda arrived at Wayanad at 1130 hours in morning and held a roadshow at Sulthan Bathery from 1200 hrs to 1330 hrs.
Later, he will attend a public meeting at Kulappully in Palakkad district and at Thiruvananthapuram in evening.
