Kerala Assembly Election, The Man Who Ran To Kerala - BJP Leaders Hit Out At Rahul Gandhi
Senior BJP leaders, including party chief JP Nadda and External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, lashed out at Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday night, accusing the Congress MP of disrespecting north Indians, and seeking to "divide and rule", during an election rally in Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram.
Mr Gandhi, who is in the southern state to campaign ahead of Assembly polls due in a few weeks, had said: "For the first 15 years I was a MP in the north. I had got used to a different type of politics... Kerala is very different because people are interested in issues... not just superficially, but going into details. I was telling students that I really enjoy Kerala and going to Wayanad."
"It is the way you do your politics. There is intelligence in what you do," he added.
For the first 15 yrs, I was an MP in north. I had got used to a different type of politics. For me, coming to Kerala was very refreshing as suddenly I found that people are interested in issues & not just superficially but going into detail in issues: Rahul Gandhi, in Trivandrum pic.twitter.com/weBG2T1WAf
