Sumerpur, Dec 5 : In a blistering attack on Congress party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that the grand-old party has accepted defeat in Rajasthan Assembly elections.

Addressing a public gathering here, Mr Modi said, 'Congress is trying its level best to avoid the responsibility of the defeat falling on the naamdaars.'

Exuding confidence about winning the polls comfortably, the Prime Minister said, “I am confident that the people of Rajasthan have decided to elect the BJP. Wherever I travelled and met people, I have seen that they have decided to elect a BJP government once again. People of Rajasthan have decided. Now, our work is to win every polling booth. I don’t want to win just Rajasthan, I want to win every polling booth.”

Mr Modi added, 'The Congress has created so many divisions in society in the last 70 years. They have spread the venom of casteism and created urban-rural divide. How can such a party work for the benefit of the people?”

On National Herald case, the Prime Minister said, “Yesterday, the Supreme Court said that the government has a right to reassess Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi's income tax returns (National Herald Case). This was a big win for the government in the Supreme Court. Let us see how they will try to escape now.”

“They are out on bail. Can you trust such people? Those who are out on bail...can they be trusted?” he asked.
