Bharatiya Janata Party and Indian National Congress continued to take on each other in Maharashtra poll campaigning with some national issues like Scrapping Article 370 and some serious remarks on the present situation of the Indian economy. Even on the last day of the poll campaigning, the prominent leaders of India blasted each other with these key issues. This has been the case since the start of the election fever in the third-largest state in the country.
Home Minister Amit Shah while addressing a poll rally in Maharashtra, dared Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to declare that his party will bring back Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir if voted to power. 'There is still one day to go for the [Maharashtra] assembly elections,' Shah said. He accused Congress of 'not having a national interest in mind'.
Congress' Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday targeted Union Minister Piyush Goyal for his remarks on Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee, saying the government's job is to improve the 'collapsing' economy and not to run a 'comedy circus'. Goyal on Friday said that 'people have rejected' Banerjee's ideas.
“The economy is collapsing. Your job is to improve it, not to run a comedy circus,' Priyanka said in a terse message. Training guns on Goyal without naming him, she said that instead of doing their job, the BJP leaders are trying to falsify the achievements of others.
Earlier reacting to Goyal’s remarks on Friday, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said in a tweet, “so electoral victory makes Nobel experts wrong, maybe ignorant; Nyay bad because BJP returned to power. Amazing inverse logic and huge arrogance.'
