Hitting back at Rahul Gandhi, BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain has said the Congress vice president is “afraid” of the women leaders in the BJP.

Women are respected the most in the BJP and the party has maximum number of women legislators in Uttar Pradesh, he said reacting to the Congress leader’s remarks suggesting that the BJP and the RSS discriminate against women. “Rahul Gandhi will take time to understand the BJP and the RSS… he will have to do research for it,” Hussain told newspersons here last night.

Addressing a gathering of students in Vadodara on Tuesday, Gandhi had said, “The BJP’s thinking is that till women are silent they are good, when they start speaking up they try to shut them up. Their organisation is the RSS. How many women are there in the RSS… Have you ever seen any woman in ‘shakhas’ wearing shorts? I have never seen,” he had said.

Hussain said the language used by the Congress leader was “unfortunate” and he had “crossed all limits”, adding that Rahul Gandhi was out to realise the dream of Mahatma Gandhi “to finish” the Congress. The Congress leader “is afraid of women leaders in the BJP”, he claimed. “Rahul gets afraid whenever the name of Smriti Irani crops up before him,” the BJP spokesman said, referring to the Union minister who had taken on the Congress leader in Amethi in the last Lok Sabha election.

Claiming that the BJP will romp home victorious in 2019 and Narendra Modi will return to power, he said Congress leaders have no time left as they “are busy enjoying holidays and foreign trips”. On the Congress’ charges against BJP president Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah, he said that they are baseless and people will give a befitting reply soon.

He alleged that Rahul Gandhi and the Congress were, on the other hand, “neck deep in corruption”. He asserted that there was no need for any kind of probe into the allegations against Jay Shah and ruled out resignation of party chief Amit Shah, saying the issue is not relevant.

Claiming that the BJP will get two-third majority both in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat, where assembly elections are due, Hussain said that the Congress is “extremely frustrated” over the state of affairs. To a question as to whether the party will take action against Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie, who have recently criticised the central government, he said the party respects both of them and they also need to respect the party. Hussain was all praise for the Yogi Adityanath government, saying that it has taken rapid strides on the development front and had made the state crime-free within a short time.

          Rahul is indulged in negative politics by uttering non-relevant issues and he is busy in criticizing Modi govt. What Rahul was doing during past 10 years of UPA regime and why he failed to address those problems which he is talking today? The public is fully aware of misdeeds of Congress govt in last 60 years. Modi govt must take prompt action against corrupts of UPA who were involved in several gigantic scams worth trillions of rupees and ensure severe punishment so that past corruption is not repeated in future.
