THANE – Bharatiya Janata Party President Rajnath Singh has said that Mahatma Gandhi had called for dissolution of the Congress party after the independence in 1947, an Indian news service reported on Friday.
Congress leaders did not heed Gandhi’s advice, he said while addressing a campaign rally at Kalyan in the district. Rajnath said that BJP would fulfill the dreams of father of the Indian nation Gandhiji. Promising a corruption-free regime and reforms, he said that his party would realise Gandhi’s dreams.
“I have toured the entire India and have seen an overwhelming support for Narendra Modi as people want a change,” he said. In the next 10 years, India would become not only an economic power, but ‘jagat-guru’ of the world, he said.
Referring to the memoirs of journalist Sanjaya Baru, a former media adviser to the prime minister, which claim that Manmohan Singh had to bow to the wishes of the Congress chief on certain occasions, he sought a clarification from Sonia Gandhi.
Earlier, he declared that Narendra Modi will be the prime minister if NDA forms the government after the Lok Sabha polls irrespective of the number of seats won by the BJP.
