Rahul chairs first CWC meeting as party chief

Rahul Gandhi to chair first CWC meet as Congress chief today

If the BJP were to start a film franchise it would be called "Lie Hard", Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Saturday, tweaking the name of popular American action series "Die Hard" - in a dig at the ruling party, a day after he described its foundation as based on an "architecture of lies".

The dominant sentiment at Friday's Congress Working Committee meeting was that Gujarat had shown Rahul Gandhi as capable of infusing new energy into the party and that the people had begun to see through Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "false propaganda".

According to Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken, who led the march, Congress MPs would voice their protest inside Parliament and while the party's workers would protest on the streets to take this fight to the logical conclusion.

The Congress chief will talk to leaders from South Gujarat, North Gujarat, Central Gujarat and the Saurashtra-Kutch region and ascertain the reasons behind the party's defeat, though the party had improved its performance over 2012 elections. "At every step, they were trying to polarise". Later addressing the media, Congress communications incharge Randeep Surjewala said the CWC also discussed the current political situation and how the BJP "concocted the conspiracy" against the Congress in the 2G issue. BJP, particularly Mr Narendra Modi, Mr Arun Jaitley and their stooge, Vinod Rai created a "fallacious web of allegations of corruption".

"I had asked for ticket from the Congress party, but they did not gave it so I had to contest as an independent", Rathod said. The truth is, however, out in the open that the BJP made a profession out of its conspiracy of lies and falsehoods to gain power at any cost. The CWC also passed a resolution lauding the contribution of Sonia Gandhi in leading and guiding the party to great heights during her 19 years of presidentship.

"I have declared unconditional support to BJP", Rathod told reporters here.

Whatever Mr Gandhi might say, his party will not return to power as people know its corrupt face, Mr Rao added.

It was among the major corruption scandals that came to light during the second term of the UPA government headed by former prime minister Manmohan Singh.
