BJP hits out at Rahul Gandhi, says his Bahrain speech 'irresponsible

Mr Prasad also said that before comparing India with China and praising the latter, Mr Gandhi should have seen a report in an worldwide magazine's December issue, "which predicts that India would overtake China in growth" soon. You have shown us how you have built the countries you have journeyed to.

Rahul also underlined the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) performance in the recently concluded Gujarat elections and said that though the state is the BJP's bastion it siphoned a narrow win.

The BJP said Mr Gandhi accused the government of spreading hate and terror, besides few other things that are normally not said at worldwide forums but for the longest time, the politics of hate and communalism has been practised by the Congress itself.

Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, addressing a press conference, said that Mr. Gandhi's interactions were "an attempt to malign India's image on foreign soil" and was "highly shameful". "Your talent, skills, tolerance and patriotism are what India needs today", ANI quoted Gandhi as saying.

He met Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa and Foreign Minister Prince Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa and discussed ways to develop sports and cricket ties between the two countries.

He said that to top it all the government was in denial. "We need you just as we needed you in 1947 to defeat the British forces", Rahul added.

"Job creation is at an eight-year low", Rahul claimed, "Instead of focusing on removal of poverty, creating jobs, improving healthcare and building world-class education system, we see the creation of hatred between communities". 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".

Over the last few months, Gandhi had taken a page out of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's book, addressing Indians during his visit overseas.
