Nagpur News: Congress organised a massive booth- level agents rally here on Tuesday, claimed to be the first of its kind in the country by any political party, in order to gear up for Lok Sabha elections.
Organised by the Nagpur Rural Congress Committee for Ramtek Lok Sabha constituency agents, party workers were urged to enroll voters in large numbers to ensure cent per cent polling for party candidates.
All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary and in-charge for Maharashtra, Mohan Prakash, came down heavily on RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat for reportedly picking Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as BJP’s prime ministerial candidate for 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Ridiculing RSS-BJP nexus, he said the Sangh Parivar fountainhead has often claimed to be a “non-political” outfit but was not so in reality.
Tongue-in-cheek, he went on to say that when BJP needs a doctor to treat “human beings”, indirectly referring to Modi, it had sought the services of a veterinary doctor like Mohan Bhagwat.
In his speech, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan called upon party workers to remain alert for communal violence like the one which occurred in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh recently. Whenever communal riots took place, opposition parties have come to power, he said.
