Prime Minister Narendra Modi may have won many hearts of the Indian diaspora in the US, but he also used the opportunity to attack the main opposition party Congress, whose support his government needs in Parliament to pass key bills.

In his speech at the SAP Centre in San Jose on Sunday, Modi again took a dig at the Gandhi family and obliquely accused the Congress of corruption.

The Congress hit back and criticised Modi saying he should not bring out his rivalry with the party on an international platform.

The Monsoon session of the Parliament was washed away with the Congress adamant on seeking resignation of top BJP leaders for the alleged Vyapam scam and the Lalit Modi immigration scandal.

So will this fresh attack on the Congress further aggravate matters for the ruling BJP which is seeking to introduce major reforms in the upcoming parliamentary session?
