The BJP said Tuesday Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi knows "defeat stares at his face" as he shied away from a debate with its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
"Rahul recognises certain defeat stares at his face," Bharatiya Janata Party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said, referring to Rahul Gandhi's TV interview on Monday.
"He had no answer to the repeated questions on Modi being given a clean chit (for the Gujarat riots). When he was asked why he chose to run away from a direct competition with Modi, he had nothing to say," Prasad told Times Now.
"...In contrast to Rahul you have Modi who was born in poverty, who has come up because of his hard work," Prasad added.
