Rahul takes a dig at Modi, compares him to Hitler
Posted on: 10:01 PM IST Mar 11, 2014
Balasinor: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday launched a blistering attack on BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on his home turf by comparing him with Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and also accused his government of "stealing" farmers' land at the behest of corporates.
"Then there is another kind of leader, whose best example is perhaps Hitler. Hitler thought there was no need to go to people. He believed entire knowledge of the world is only in his mind. That kind of leader only talks that he did this and that. That leader does not require going to people," he said without naming anybody.
Rahul also made light of Modi's recent statement that he would protect the country's treasury as a 'chowkidar' (watchman) from corruption, saying that there was no need of such a watchman.
Alleging that BJP has no ideology of its own and that is why it want to usurp the legacy of Sardar Patel by building a huge statue, Rahul guaranteed that his party will never follow any RSS or BJP leaders.
