Congress on Sunday took potshots at Narendra Modi over his meeting with RSS leaders saying the BJP prime ministerial candidate was being dictated by the Sangh which it described as the “most unaccountable remote control”.

“The people of India for many decades have seen that it is the most unaccountable remote control of Nagpur and the Prime Ministerial aspirant is no more with all his 56-inch chest except someone running on remote control,” party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters here.

During the election campaign, Modi had accused Congress chief Sonia Gandhi of running the government with remote control without being accountable. Targeting RSS, which claims to be a cultural organisation, Singhvi wondered whether the Sangh filed any return to the Election Commission and whether it was accountable to the people.

He exuded confidence of UPA coming back to power and took a jibe at BJP for its claim of forming the next government, saying such confidence was also displayed by them during the 2004 and 2009 general elections.

He said Rahul Gandhi’s campaign in Varanasi has further widened the expected victory margin between the Congress candidate and his nearest rival and that Congress will win the seat with high margin.

    The Congress party is only an extension of the household of the Nehru family and its functionaries are only courtiers. They have no right to talk sbout India's tallest political leader. let the congressmen go to the Amul Baby and give him milk and biscuits.

        The BJP stands at the fulcrum of RSS and the fact cannot be ruled out as voiced by Atalji himself when he umed the post of PM. Similarly the architect behind Modiji's campaign and win is the same RSS. Its guidance in ministry formation will be helpful and it should not interfere with the functioning of Government. The mandate being given to Modiji by the entire nation , took him to the horizon , and he will have no erosion or corrosion in his vision so long as his mission in motion exercises caution without hesitation , will act as a strong foundation and any interpretation to the contrary will have military intervention.

              So it comes down to which remote control is better. The India remote control that pays taxes and is made of the common man or the Italian one that has no education and it bent on looting the nation.
