  • Rahul-Gandhi

Deploring Congress Lok Sabha candidate Imran Masood's controversial remarks about Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi today said the comments were against the party's ideology.

Without naming Masood, Rahul said he had used similar language against an opposition leader six months ago and he should not have used such language. "He should not have used such words against the opposition leader. I want to tell the whole country that words he used against one of opposition leaders is not our ideology," Rahul said without naming Masood while addressing a public meeting in Ghaziabad.

Masood, Congress aspirant from Saharanpur in UP, was today arrested for his "hate" speech in which he allegedly threatened to "chop" BJP's prime ministerial candidate Modi "into pieces". "Congress Party is of Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians. We do not get angry, we do our work peacefully and with love," Rahul said.
