Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee member Raman Bahl claimed on Monday that Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi had become a symbol of fundamentalism after the Godhra riots and that fundamentalism had no place in Indian democracy.


He was commenting on the Modi's speech at the BJP 'sankalp' rally at Madhopur on Sunday.
Bahl also said that Modi, who has been appointed the national election campaign panel incharge of the BJP, as a leader would not be acceptable to all in the country.

The Congress leader also remarked that Modi's speech did not delve into the policies and programmes for the development of the country but rather furthered the RSS agenda on Kashmir and minorities.

He claimed that the United Progressive Alliance government was functioning well and advised Modi to not harbour the notion that the people of the country wanted change in government at the Centre.

The National Democratic Alliance constituents would see the Congress-led UPA government back in power at the Centre for the third consecutive time after the 2014 general election, the PPCC leader asserted.
