BJP President Rajnath Singh on Wednesday launched a hard-hitting attack on Congress, accusing it of resorting to lies to embroil RSS in Ajmer blasts case.

CBI will fight upcoming polls, says Narendra Modi

"Ajmer blast accused Bhavesh Patel has made a statement that the Home Minister and a former Chief Minister of the state, who is also a Congress general secretary, had asked him to name RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and Indresh Kumar in the blasts case," he told a rally here.

Singh's remarks came after Patel in a reported letter to the NIA special court claimed that Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde forced him to implicate Bhagwat and senior leader Indresh Kumar in the terror case.

Maintainig that Patel's reported statement has exposed Congress, the BJP chief said, "People take recourse to lies when there is absence of truth."

Striking an imagery of the great Mahabharat war, Singh compared Congress with Kauravas, saying they will not be able to defeat the Pandavas, the BJP.

He said that BJP has now become a "bigger party than Congress" and it will win 2013 Assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh and the general elections in 2014 irrespective of "how many lies Congress resorts to."

He also slammed the UPA government on the issue of corruption, price rise and internal security. Comparing the UPA's rule with six-years-rule of NDA, Singh said that while price rise was controlled during their government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee, it is growing now and "corruption has broken all records".

Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Uma Bharati had a dig at Rahul Gandhi, saying that the Congress Vice President went touring the villages of the poor and Dalits in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh and had "pakodas"

sitting on their cots.

"Development will happen, when the Dalits sit on the cot...and have pakodas. To say that we are Lord Rama and you are Shabari (the mythological Dalit woman character in Ramayana, who had offered Lord Rama sweet berries and was emancipated as a result) may be Congress tradition but not of BJP," she said.
