Soon after the Congress vice-president took pot-shots at Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP came down heavily on the Congress leader saying he has to give up his “toddler” politics and “grow out of diapers”.
Lashing out at Rahul, who during his visit to Rajasthan targeted both Modi and Vasundhara, BJP secretary Siddharth Nath Singh said: “It is high time that Rahul Gandhi grow out of diapers he is wearing. He is no longer a toddler politician now,” Singh said, adding that the “unsolicited” advise for the Congress vice-president from the BJP would be “please get into some constructive politics”.

Responding to Rahul Gandhi’s remark that the BJP government in Rajasthan was run by a remote control in London, Singh said it was the Congress that used to run governments by remote control. Referring to a Lalit Modi tweet, the BJP leader spoke about the likely “deal of Rs 500-600 crore involving your (Rahul Gandhi) mother’s sister,” and said he should also speak about it.
Singh also took a strong exception to Rahul’s jibe on Modi that people would reduce his “56 inch chest to 5.6 inches”.
Singh retorted: “It is good that Gandhi has got a measurement tape, but he should not dare to measure the chest that has the blessings and pride of the crores of people in this country.”
The BJP leader took on Rahul for his barbs over land bill and said he should also speak “about how Vadra managed to acquire so many properties in Haryana.”
