“Congress alone cannot bring down Narendra Modi from power. But still, Congress is the crucial force to lead the campaign to oust Modi from power. Hence, Congress is looking for a broader alliance to defeat BJP,” Antony said, while addressing the general body of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee.
Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, Antony said, has evolved as a strong leader to take on Modi and is now capable of putting up a brave fight. “That is why Modi fears Rahul,” he added. The Congress veteran described the upcoming Lok Sabha elections as a “Kurukshetra battle” saying communal forces must be ousted from power to save the country.
