At a public gathering in Madhya Pradesh's Bhopal, Nadda said Congress' Satyagraha is different than what Mahatma Gandhi did for ‘India’s identity'.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda on Sunday took a jibe at the Congress over its day-long ‘Sankalp Satyagraha’ in support of party leader Rahul Gandhi. He further said that the ‘actual satyagraha’ was conducted by Mahatma Gandhi for ‘India’s identity' and asked about the Congress' ‘pride’ to conduct the protest across the country.

“You (Rahul Gandhi) give casteist slurs to the backward communities by calling them theives. Court has repeatedly asked you to apologise and your pride is so high that you deny apologising,” Nadda said while addressing a gathering in Madhya Pradesh's Bhopal.

The Congress carried out a day-long protest in support of Rahul Gandhi after he was disqualified from the Lok Sabha. The protest wa conducted at Delhi's Rajghat despite the city police imposing Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), which prohibits gathering of more than five persons in an area.

Targetting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress' general secretary Priyanka Gandhi said that her family has nurtured the democracy of this country with their blood. “The prime minister of this country is a coward. Yes, file a case against me and put me in jail too. He is a proud coward. Our country has the tradition of defeating a proud king,” she sad while addressing the protest.
