Hitting back at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s remark that PM Narendra Modi was “superficial”, BJP Wednesday said that while Rahul did photo-ops with Dalits and the poor, the PM was “working for the poor.”
It also accused Congress of “sowing the first seeds of division” in the country and “appeasement” in Jammu and Kashmir for which “people are still suffering”.
Reacting to Rahul’s remark that Modi was never seen with farmers or photographed holding their hands, BJP national secretary Sidharth Nath Singh said: “You may be happy doing photo-ops, but our PM believes in doing work. When you talk of helping the poor, it is not done through photo-ops and by eating with them, but through schemes aimed at their welfare and safeguarding their lives and crops, which you never thought of.”

Singh, who is the secretary in charge of West Bengal for the BJP, also took a dig at Rahul for criticising the Left.
“You have said that the ideology the Communists believe in is obsolete. Then why do you want to align with them in Bengal?” he said.
