Cong attacks govt, says Swamy is Modi’s ‘mask’

New Delhi (PTI): In the backdrop of National Herald case, Congress today launched a no-holds barred attack against government, accusing it of resorting to “unprecedented” level of vendetta politics and targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying the petitioner Subramanian Swamy was his “mask”.


Just before Congress President Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi were to appear before a court here, a host of party leaders, including Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge, Anand Sharma and Randeep Singh Surjewala, addressed the media to attack the NDA government, particularly Modi.

Azad said Congress was not afraid of targeting by the Modi dispensation and asserted that the more the party is attacked, the sooner it will return to power.

“The BJP government is resorting to unprecedented level of vendetta politics. The country has never seen this kind of politics. We will fight out the battle,” said the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha.

Calling Swamy a “mask” for Modi, he said the BJP functionary has been awarded with a bungalow for dragging Congress leadership to court even though he was not a Parliamentarian or government official.

“He (Swamy) has been placed under Z-category and allotted a government bungalow. He is not a member of the Parliament nor from a border state. He is not facing any threat from any terrorist organisation….The bungalow was given as an award for dragging the Congress leadership to court,” said Azad.

He said the country has seen “unprecedented level” of vendetta politics since BJP came to power at the Centre and cited CBI raid against Himachal Chief Minister, “conspiracy” to bring down Congress government in Arunachal and raid at the Delhi Secretariat.

“Before elections, BJP had given a call for Congress-free India, now they are trying to have a Opposition-free India: Congress,” he said.


  1. Why is Congress so fearful of the case against Sonia and Rahul? Are they immune from the law of the land and should the judiciary succumb to the pressure put by the daughter-in-law and grandson of Indira Gandhi. If they have not committed crime why should they fear for Swamy or any one else and start accusing BJP and all others, except their own party which of course is mired with numerous scams and corruption. Sonia and Rahul, please calm down and law will take care of the case based on merits, not because who you are and what you are up to.

    • sas asks, “Are they immune from the law of the land”

      Sir, don’t you know that when a summons is issued by any court, every accused has a right to seek the quashing of the summons in the higher court? Where is the question of judiciary succumbing to the pressure and what is the pressure? Who said that the accused are fearing? All false accusations made by you are because you are a partisan of the BJP or anti Congress in your mental frame.

      Has anyone from the Congress ever accused the Constitutional Full Bench of the Supreme Court of India as “the Gymkhana Club” or branded the Supreme Court’s decision as the “Tyranny by the un-elected”, as did the BJP and Arun Jaitley blurted a week back?

    • manu – Why fear if your honest?

      Sir, defending a case or denying accusation is not an act of fear!

      Please do not be fearful about BJP being rejected by Indians against your wish.

      • How the overconfidence of infallibility of the BJP followers can be
        rectified while too blindly they are adoring in a person as a
        miracle worker? They are not reading the recent election results.

  2. B.N. Pai questions whether SAS is a BJP. The answer is Sas is neither a BJP nor a Congressman; he loves India and hated India being looted during the previous Congress regime. Who is Rajiv; a pilot suddenly elected as a PM of this great democracy. Who is the current Congress leader? A foreign origin lady took advantage of her position and started dictating the future of India regardless of its impact of her policies on the country so long as it benefits her and her party and her relatives. Who is Rahul? Son of Rajiv and Sonia and grandson of Indira and Feroz Khan lacking in leadership and possessing low IQ and is being projected as future PM of this great nation as if no other leader among the Congress party is available. When there is a prima facie case, you should take the matter coolly and prove the charges against you are false instead of lambasting everyone on earth. That is not the way to gain people’s sympathy and good wishes.

    • sas – “That is not the way to gain people’s sympathy and good wishes.”

      Sir, your narration only proves that you are pathologically against the Congress and you have every right to be so. But, you being what you are, you should be happy, if the Congress does not follow “the way to gain people’s sympathy and good wishes.”

      We know who should be the at the helm of affairs of the Congress party, from time to time, and it is none of your concern.

      Stop shedding crocodile tears. You are worried about Modi and RS, and not about the way congress does its job!
