Rahul Gandhi was having picnic: Shivanand Tiwari
RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari speaking to ANI said, “When the election in Bihar was at its peak, Rahul Gandhi was having a picnic in Shimla with his sister Priyanka Gandhi. Does the party go on like this? The way the Congress is contesting the elections is benefiting the BJP itself.”
This is not the first case when an alliance partner of the Grand Alliance has raised such questions on Congress. Earlier, questions were also raised by the CPI-ML on decision to give more seats to the Congress. CPI-ML general secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya had said that if his party had got more seats, the final results would have been different. In this election, CPI-ML fielded candidates for 19 seats, of which the party won 12 seats.
