Only PM Modi, RSS chief running India: Rahul Gandhi

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi waves during an election campaign rally at Kandi in Murshidabad

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Friday launched a scathing attack at the Narendra Modi government, saying the country was being run by only two persons -- Modi and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.

Rahul said: "Anyone who dares to speak against them (Modi and Bhagwat) are charged with false allegations."

"Today in India, the voice of only two people are heard, Narendra Modiji and Mohan Bhagwatji," Rahul said at Loktantra Bachao march at the Janatar Mantar here.

He alleged that the government made false accusations against people who are critical of the prime minister and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Scores of Congress leaders, including party president Sonia Gandhi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh, took to the streets of national capital to protest against the Centre.

The Congress leader also alleged that the Union government broke all the laws by destabilising the Congress government in Arunachal Pradesh and removed all the elected leaders.

Congress and the BJP have been of late involved in a bitter banter on a range of issues, including the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam.
