Rahul an international leader, can contest in Italy too: Modi
"Recently a Congress leader made a statement that Rahul Gandhi is a national leader of Congress and I am a regional leader. I am happy to be a leader of Gujarat but I do not agree to consider Rahul as national leader," Modi said, addressing Swami Vivekananda Youth Convention here.
"I am proud to be a regional leader of Gujarat. Rahul is not a national leader but an international leader and he can contest election in India as well as in Italy," Modi said, once again targeting the foreign origin issue of his mother Sonia Gandhi.
Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi had last week made the comment when he was asked whether the forthcoming election in Gujarat be "Modi Vs Rahul". He had said comparison cannot be made as Rahul is Congress's national leader while Modi is regional leader of Gujarat.
