New Delhi:  Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today made a blistering attack on BJP saying it
believed in lighting fires of communal hatred and turning people against one another.

In a no-holds-barred attack on the main opposition, he told the delegates at the day-long AICC session that BJP believed in disrupting Parliament year after year and day after day in the last ten years stalling important legislations.
       
“Democracy is not rule by dictates.  Democracy is not rule by one man.  We will not respond by lighting fires of communal hatred and turning people against one another.
       
“We don't respond by proposing that structures of democracy be handed over to one man,” he said in his 45-minute speech singling out BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi without taking his name.
      
Asked to head the party's election campaign by the CWC yesterday, Rahul Gandhi said Congress believed in Constitution and “our MPs will elect the new Prime Minister in accordance with the Constitution”.
