Row over Rahul Gandhi's alleged comments on Congress being Muslim party to cast its shadow on Parliament session
Both the BJP and the Opposition would be looking to set the tone for some key state polls before the next Lok Sabha elections in less than 10 months.
The Congress hit back at Modi for using the reported 'Muslim party' remark to take a jibe at the opposition party and said the BJP was the 'new version of East India Company.'
"I am surprised as such a thing was neither said by any of the guests nor by Rahul Gandhi during the interaction," Prof Habib told TNIE.
Speaking to the media in the national capital, the Union minister wondered if Congress wants to 'contest 2019 elections based on religion'.
