Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday continued his attack on the Congress and Rahul Gandhi’s decision to contest from Wayanad as his second constituency, claiming that the party was forced to use a microscope to find a Lok Sabha seat from which he could successfully contest.
Gandhi will contest the Lok Sabha polls from two constituencies – Amethi in Uttar Pradesh and Wayanad in Kerala.
“The Congress used a microscope to find a seat for ‘naamdar’ (dynast) from where he could contest,” said Modi, addressing a poll rally in Nanded in support of BJP candidates from the constituency as well as from Latur, Hingoli and Parbhani in central Maharashtra. “In the chosen seat, the country’s majority is in a minority.”
Modi had made similar comments at a rally in Wardha on April 1, where he claimed that the Congress had been forced to contest from places dominated by the minority community, in an indirect reference to Gandhi’s decision to fight from Wayanad.
