PM sees ‘threat’ in me, says Rahul 

Bengaluru: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi saw a “threat” in him, and the attack by him over his prime ministerial ambition was only aimed at “distracting attention”.Gandhi also hit out at Modi for raking up the issue of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s foreign origin, saying “my mother is Italian” but she was “more Indian than many Indians”. “This election is not about Rahul. I have now learnt to deal with the PM. When he can’t respond, he distracts,” Gandhi said responding to questions about Modi’s repeated attacks on him over his prime ministerial ambition.Training his guns on Gandhi after he publicly declared his prime ministerial ambition at an interaction here, Modi had wondered whether the country would ever accept such an “immature and naamdar (dynast)” leader for the post.The Congress chief, who wrapped up his campaign tour of Karnataka with a press conference, referred to a story about Gautam Buddha to claim the PM had “anger” for everybody. “Modi has anger inside him and he has got anger for everybody not only for me. I attract that anger because he sees a threat in me. His anger is his problem, not my problem,” Gandhi said. He mocked the PM over visiting temples and called him an “election Hindu” who remembered Hindu shrines only during polls. — PTI
