Narendra Modi New Delhi, Aug 15 (IANS) Asking Narendra Modi to set his house in order, the Congress Monday said the latest comments on its general secretary Rahul Gandhi by the Gujarat chief minister were made out of frustration.

“Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are getting frustrated finding a youth icon making a mark all across the country as they have no youth icon and we have Rahul Gandhi in the Congress,” said Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

Singhvi was reacting to Modi’s remarks during his Independence Day address in which he critcised Gandhi’s touring several states, stopping by at the homes of farmers to share a meal and sometimes even spending the night at their homes.

“It was a matter of shame that people still go for photo-ops to the homes of the poor,” Modi said, without naming the Congress MP.

Singhvi referred to Modi’s action against whistleblower police officers in the post-Godhra 2002 riots and said: “We know how several officers are being targeted by the Gujarat government as they dare to speak the truth. Let him not preach and he should set his own house in order.”
