Euphoric reception for Congress president Rahul Gandhi in Bahrain

The BJP on Tuesday hit back at Congress president Rahul Gandhi for his speech in Bahrain, critical of the Indian government, terming it "irresponsible" and saying that it was the Congress that spread hatred in the country for the longest period.

After Bahrain, Congress President Rahul Gandhi's next foreign trip would be to countries like Canada and Singapore followed by another one to the Middle East.

Gandhi, while addressing a convention of Global Organisation of People of Indian origin, said that the Centre instead of focusing on removal of poverty, job creation and providing world-class education system is busy fuelling hate and division.

"Fans and well wishers throng the Bahrain Airport to greet Congress President Rahul Gandhi", the party tweeted. "The attempt by Rahul Gandhi to "malign" India's image on the foreign soil is highly shameful", he said at a press conference. It is not the BJP, but the Congress that is playing the politics of hatred. "And come next elections, we will show you how the BJP is defeated", Rahul said.

He referred to the Triple Talaq bill, whose passage the Congress had stalled in the Rajya Sabha and accused the Congress of failing to take a stand on an issue of woman's respect and justice.

Responding to a question from the audience, Rahul also pin-pointed three key policy sectors he would focus on, if he was in power. In his address - the first since he took over as the Congress chief - he said the government is dividing people on the basis of caste and religion and that it was channeling the fear unemployed youth have into a "hatred between communities".

"Why doesn't he see the politics of hate when Sangh's activists are brutally murdered in these states?" he said.

"The party (Congress) that can not take a stand on women's rights, dignity and honour is trying to teach us on foreign soil".

Emphasizing the importance of the Indians living overseas for the nation, he said, "Your tolerance, your patriotism is what India needs today".
