Surat (Gujarat), Apr 23 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Rajnath Singh on Thursday accused the Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh of making personal attacks on BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Lal Krishna Advani.
“The main thing that our leaders have said that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government was weak. Manmohan Singh should not take the comments on weakness of the UPA Government as a personal attack on him,” he told reporters here.

“We are the main Opposition party and PM should take our comments in a constructive manner. The PM needs to abide by the dignity of the position he is holding and should not indulge in personal attacks,” he added.
The BJP leader said his party was an ideology-driven party.
“The BJP is an ideology-driven party where there are no followers or slaves. At least our party is not slave of a family,” Rajnath Singh added. (ANI)
