Congress on Sunday dismissed Narendra Modi's charge that Rahul Gandhi had undermined the Prime Minister's authority by attacking the ordinance on lawmakers and alleged that the Gujarat CM was "misguiding" the country while "ignoring" his state which is facing flood threat.

Modi politically irrelevant outside Gujarat: Congress

"Rahul Gandhi had not even mentioned the name of the Prime Minister. He had only expressed his views regarding the ordinance. He did not even ask the government to withdraw it," party leader Rashid Alvi said in reaction to Modi's speech at a rally in the national capital.

National Interest: The Congress's Modi

Alvi alleged that it was Modi who was "denigrating" Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with his remarks here at a time when he is in New York meeting various heads of state promoting the cause of the nation.

A day after Modi's attack on PM, Congress calls him a proverbial frog

The Congress leader accused Gujarat Chief Minister of "ignoring" the people of his state which is facing a serious flood threat.

Modi's abrasive hunger for power has no limits: Digvijaya Singh

"People of Gujarat need Modi there. It is unfortunate that he is ignoring his own people who elected him as Chief Minister and is in Delhi, misguiding the nation".

Earlier in the day, in a scathing attack on Gandhi, the BJP's PM candidate accused him of undermining authority of the Prime Minister and asked people to decide if the nation will be run according to the Constitution or whims of the "prince".

Addressing a rally, his first in the capital after being named the Prime Ministerial candidate by BJP, Modi alleged, "The pride of the Prime Minister has been brought down by his own party. Congress party Vice President has committed the sin of disrespecting the Prime Minister."
