Hyderabad: Former Rajya Sabha member V. Hanumantha Rao, in a recent statement, alleged that leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are attempting to gain political advantage through a smear campaign against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.

The BJP has alleged that Rahul Gandhi insulted the OBCs during his speech in Kolar, Karnataka, which took place in 2019. However, not a single OBC leader has spoken up in support of the BJP’s claims since then. Despite this, the court rejected Rahul Gandhi’s bail petition, which has disappointed the Congress party but has not deterred their legal fight for justice, Hanumantha Rao said in the statement.

During his speech, Rahul Gandhi focused on the issue of corruption, specifically mentioning Neeraj Modi and Lalit Modi, but did not mention Prime Minister Narendra Modi in any way. The Congress party has expressed their disappointment in the BJP’s attempts to tarnish Rahul Gandhi’s reputation and their confidence that justice will ultimately be served.

In response to the allegations, the former Rajya Sabha member stated that the Congress party has nothing to fear from the BJP’s political tactics and that justice must be done for Rahul Gandhi. The Congress party remains steadfast in their resolve and will not let the BJP’s political enmity bring them down, he added.
