Amit Shah, PM Modi only non-animals in country, says Rahul Gandhi

An upbeat Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday asserted that a united opposition would defeat the BJP, as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Varanasi, in the 2019 general elections. At some of her meetings, according to reports, she was told by veteran opposition leaders such as Sharad Pawar that the Congress had to be part of such a coalition to have the punch. "It is a disrespectful statement, but we don't take what Mr Amit Shah says with too much seriousness", Mr Gandhi said.

".because there are two basic things, once opposition unity goes above a certain level, it becomes impossible to win elections". What has happened in India now is that the Opposition's unity is very strong. "It's simple", Gandhi said at an informal media interaction.

"We will manage it". We are not egoistic, we don't destroy lives, we don't crush people - unlike BJP, added Gandhi.

The Congress president also ruled out the emergence of any third front. "You can't run this country as an individual, you have to run this country by listening to it, by working with it. and now after four years, he (Modi) has suddenly lost it, because now the wheels are running on them".

He termed as "funny", BJP's confidence of breaking the Opposition alliance in Uttar Pradesh. Shah later said what he meant was political parties having no ideological similarities were coming together out of fear of Modi. "It's Mr Advani, Mr Manohar Joshi, even Mr Gadkari, it's everybody", said Gandhi.

Rahul attacked the PM Modi-led BJP government and alleged there was a breakdown in government due to the ruling party's mismanagement, demonetisation and implosion of the financial system. "When Nagpur runs the country, right by definition there has to be discrimination. Mr. Modi has no chance to win in 2019". "We have to accept that and understand that. of course, there were a lot of lies, a lot of false allegations, a lot of venom spread by the BJP and the RSS".

Mr Gandhi claimed Maharashtra was given Rs 8,000 crore for drought and Gujarat Rs 3,800 crore while Karnataka got Rs 1,400 crore.
