‘I stand with the last person in the line’: Rahul befitting reply over ‘Muslim party’ remark


Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday broke his silence after remark of being a Muslim party. Rahil tweeted, “I stand with the last person in the line. The exploited, marginalised and the persecuted. Their religion, caste or beliefs matter little to me”.

The BJP and the Congress have been sparring after the Urdu daily reported that Gandhi, who met Muslim intellectuals earlier last week, had told them that the Congress was a party for Muslims.

Congress chief said he stands with the persecuted and seeks to erase “hatred and fear”, breaking his silence on the controversy.

“I seek out those in pain and embrace them. I erase hatred and fear. I love all living beings. I am the Congress,” he said.

Earlier PM Modi, while delivering a speech in Azamgarh over the weekend, also raised the issue, saying, “I read in the newspaper that the Congress president had said that Congress is a party of Muslims, and there has been discussion on this for the past two days.”

“I am not surprised as when Manmohan Singh was PM, he had said that Muslims have the first right over natural resources,” he had said.
