On Thursday BJP  hit back at Rahul Gandhi for his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and blamed the former UPA regime for the problems for which the Congress leader targeted the government.

Union minister Venkaiah Naidu responded to Rahul’s attack by taking a dig at him, saying, “His voice is not heard by his own party, why should we listen?”

The Congress Vice President attacked Modi during a tour of his constituency Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.

“The Prime Minister enthrals audiences in Japan but Rahul Gandhi and Congress have lost their rhythm,” said BJP spokesman Nalin Kohli while responding to the Congress leader’s remark that Modi is “playing drums” in Japan while electricity problem and price rise were hurting people back home.

Referring to Rahul’s attack on Modi over power problems in Uttar Pradesh, Kohli said he should answer why Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav “is not in touch” with Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal.

“As far as power problem is concerned, you (Rahul) were sleeping in Parliament and the UPA government for 10 years was in self-induced coma. It absolved itself of governance and converted the situation from economic prosperity to economic despondency,” he said.

“These problems will be solved as Prime Minister Modi is serving the country, not ruling it,” he said.

    This man I mean Rahul has lack of knowledge of every thing and anything. He has no idea what actually happened in an during PM Modiji's visit purely because he was sleeping and he got up with rhythmic drum beating by Modiji. I know the people of India intelligently avoided

    Why does he even try? It is so embarring watching someone make a fool of himself in public again and again. Just go back to Italy buddy.

    Shukla ji, I never said I am a blind devotee of anybody. That was your own conclusion. Please tell me how hi is able to keep a check when he himself has zero accomplishments to display. Is that why he is not even the Congress leader in Lok Sabha? Surely you will agree that common people like us, the media and the justice system is scrutinizing sufficiently the government and its policies. If someone of the stature of Modi rises in the opposition, a self made person, someone with a vision to steer the country forward, then I'd be more than glad to have such a credible alternative. However I see no one attaining that stature in the next 5 or 10 years.

    Well hi Baba, first you should know that your Momma was calling the shots for 10 years. You had all the power, money and resources to develop your consuency. What's the use of digging a well now when your house is on fire? People have shown you the door. Now please do us a favour and just fade into oblivion never to come back again in public life.

    You are right Sir. No use taking cover under hi or previous government's pitfalls. I think that 100 days is too early to expect any palpable results. Besides as you know well, Law and Order is a subject of the state government. As long as politicians waste their energies attacking each other, nothing concrete can be achieved.
