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.
