With the election season slowly peaking, the Congress went out to attack Narendra Modi by heaping praise on former PM and BJP leader A B Vajpayee.

The Congress even went to on assert that no leader in the BJP can match the stature of Vajpayee, while questioning Modi’s record of 2002 riots. “How can a person who failed in his Rajdharma as a Chief Minister ever ensure a peaceful and prosperous future for the people of India.

How can a person whom the tallest leader of the BJP wanted removed as the Chief Minister be the party’s prime ministerial candidate,” the article posted on Congress website along with Vajpayee picture said.

“Vajpayee was clear what was the reason for the defeat: Gujarat CM Narendra Modi’s failure to control the communal pogrom in his state in 2002...who failed to protect his citizens, who discriminated between people on the basis of religion, who made a mockery of people’s suffering, ever make a good PM,” the article added.
