Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday alleged that Narendra Modi leads a poisonous campaign of dividing the Hindus and Muslims during Assembly polls.

Gandhi, who was addressing the executive meeting of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee, said the BJP always has two campaigns in place during the elections - a campaign of growth and another a ‘poisonous’ campaign.

He said that his party realised what the BJP was trying to do and thus got “Nitish ji, Lalu ji and the Congress together”.

“We defeated the BJP soundly in Bihar and they were stunned by the results,” he said.

Firing fresh salvos at Prime Minister Modi, Gandhi recounted the former’s address in Parliament where he criticised the MGNREGA programme, calling it useless and hollow.

“On one side you have the Prime Minister saying that NREGA is a useless programme, and on the other hand you have the Finance Minister and all the other bureaucrats saying that NREGA is a good programme,” he added.
