Rahul Gandhi a serious rival: BJP ally

Rahul Gandhi a serious rival: BJP ally

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has at last recognized that Congress President-elect Rahul Gandhi as a 'serious competitor'.

As the Gujarat battle enters the final stages, the Shiv Sena said on Wednesday, reports The Times of India. Gandhi Had now emerged as a leader in his own right and he was now 'the Man to Watch' for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Sena said in its mouthpieces 'Saamana' and 'Dopahar Ka Saamana'.

"Whatever be the outcome in Gujarat, after the recent results in Uttar Pradesh civic polls, it is suspected that the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) are the biggest strength of the BJP," the Sena said. "Yet, Rahul has proved that he is no more a 'Pappu' and the BJP must accept this magnanimously.

There can be differences and fights over ideologies which are settled by elections. But creating an atmosphere that 'nobody should oppose or stand against you in politics' is shocking. Under such gloomy circumstances, Rahul is taking over as Congress President," said the edits.
