New Delhi, Sep 23 (IANS) The BJP on Wednesday took pot shots at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for going on a foreign trip ahead of the Bihar assembly election.
The party also took a jibe at him and said he was asked to stay away from the Bihar election by the state’s Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad.
“Rahul Gandhi has all the right to go for a vacation as in recent days he has worked hard for the party and has addressed few rallies…,” BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters.
“Rahul and responsibility never go together,” he added.
Patra said that as Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad were not comfortable with Rahul Gandhi as he stands for corruption, he was forced to stay away from Bihar.
“Gandhi has been sent for a forceful vacation as Nitish and Lalu were not comfortable with his presence in Bihar,” he said.
