In a sharp attack on the BJP and the RSS, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said 'nasty politics' was taking root in India and that his party would defeat the BJP in the next Lok Sabha election.
Addressing students at the Lee Juan Yew university in Singapore, Rahul said, 'We have been fighting the BJP and RSS since the beginning. An extremely nasty form of politics is currently taking root in India. We will fight this nasty form of politics and will defeat the BJP in the next election. We do not like an India where people are persecuted for what they eat, drink, wear, or think. Very soon you will see an India where everybody is loved, respected and taken along.'
Slamming the Kashmir policy of the NDA government, Rahul charged the present government of destroying the years of effort by the previous UPA to provide a healing touch in the valley.
