BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said the former Congress president had shown his true colours.
The BJP has slammed Rahul Gandhi and brought up the "maut ka saudagar" remark made by his mother after the Congress leader appeared to blame Prime Minister Narendra Modi for India's loss in the cricket World Cup final and said PM stands for 'Panauti Modi'.
Addressing a rally in election-bound Rajasthan on Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi accused PM Modi of trying to distract from the issues. "He comes on TV and says 'Hindu-Muslim' and sometimes goes to a cricket match... Our boys would have won the World Cup but the panauti (bad omen) lost us the match," he said.
In a tongue-lashing, senior BJP leader and former Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the former Congress president's remarks about the Prime Minister were "shameful, condemnable and disgraceful".
