PATNA: RJD attacked its ally Congress for the first time after the Bihar election results with the former’s vice-president Shivanand Tiwari on Sunday holding Rahul Gandhi responsible for the dismal performance of his party in the polls. “When polls were in full swing here, Rahul Gandhi was having a picnic at (his sister and Congress general secretary) Priyanka ji’s house in Shimla. This shows how seriously he took the Bihar election which was being watched by the entire nation with a hope of emergence of a new political force in the opposition. Is this the way to run a party?” Tiwari told TOI.
“Rahul Gandhi came for electioneering, but he campaigned only for three days in Bihar. He addressed only two election meetings per day (total six meetings in the state). PM Narendra Modi is very senior to him (Rahul) in age. But he had been addressing three to four meetings per day. Moreover, Rahul Gandhi left Bihar after campaigning for three days. He went to Shimla for a picnic at his sister’s house,” Tiwari, who is considered close to RJD boss Lalu Prasad said.
“Earlier, I had asked at a coordination committee meeting of the Mahagathbandhan why Rahul Gandhi will address only two election meetings in a day,” Tiwari recalled.
Accusing Congress of not giving adequate time for electioneering, Tiwari said: “They had fielded candidates in 70 constituencies. But they (Congress leaders) did not hold even 70 election meetings. This again shows how serious they were about the Bihar polls.”
Tiwari also questioned Priyanka Gandhi’s absence in the Bihar campaign. “Even Priyanka Gandhi did not come for campaigning in Bihar election which was being watched by the entire nation with a hope,” he said.
Tiwari’s attack on Rahul comes just three days after the admission by two Congress functionaries that the Mahagathbandhan had failed to reach the magic figure of 123 assembly seats because of the poor performance by the grand old party.
