Taking on the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for his calls to free the country of the Congress, vice-president of the party Rahul Gandhi Friday said the Congress ideology is rooted in India and cannot be wiped out by anyone.
“Congress is a thought and an ideology that is very old and one that cannot be eradicated from India. Those who wanted to eradicate it have themselves been wiped out,” Rahul Gandhi said addressing a rally at Nehru Maidan here Friday.
With Mangalore being a communal cauldron and communities polarized along the religious line, the Congress leader claimed his party was trying to promote politics of love and brotherhood and defeat parties involved in politics of anger.

“They pit a Hindu fight against a Muslim and a Christian. They make the people of Karnataka fight with the people of Maharashtra. They want to see people from UP and Bihar thrown out of Maharashtra. In Mangalore they beat up women,” Rahul Gandhi said.
He refuted Narendra Modi’s idea that a country like India needed a single ‘chowkidar’ to guard its interest and alternatively suggested that the Congress could create crores of ‘chowkidhars’ competent to protect the interests of the nation.
