New Delhi, May 4 : Hours after Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said his party will not support a 'third front' government, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has hit out at the Gandhi scion and said the statement was a damage control.
"In this elections, it is very tough for the Congress to survive...And the Congress thought that even if it loses, it will help Third Front. Several Congress leaders made such statements. But when they realised that it was damaging them, then Rahul 'bhaiyya' today tried to change it. They are shaken. They never expected that their house of cards will fall down like this," Modi said in a 3D address.
Earlier on Saturday, Rahul Gandhi said, "We will not support any front."
He said he is confident that the Congress get required number of seats.
"We will get the required number of seats," he said.
