Let an outsider be Congress President for 5 years: PM Modi dares Gandhi family
Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday dared the Congress to make someone outside the Gandhi family the party president for at least five years.
Modi said if Congress makes someone who is not from the (Gandhi) family as party president for at least five years, then he will believe that Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru really created a truly democratic system there. Addressing a campaign rally for the second phase of Chhattisgarh Assembly elections scheduled on November 20, Modi said, "I want to challenge them. Let some good leader of Congress outside of the family become the party president for five years, then I will say that Nehru Ji really created a truly democratic system there".
Four generations of Congress ruled the nation and they should give an account of what they have done for the country, Modi said."People have disproved that it was the "right of only one family" to speak from the ramparts of the Red Fort in Delhi," he said."You can't understand the difficulties faced by the poor but a chaiwalla can," Modi said in a veiled attack on the Congress and the Gandhis.

Congress’ Navjot Singh Sidhu on campaign blitz in Chhattisgarh, MP, Rajasthan
A plan has been drawn up for the cricketer-turned-politician from Punjab to campaign in the three of the five election bound states. Starting Friday, he will visit Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
The Punjab tourism minister is going to be the “star vote-catcher” for the Congress after party chief Rahul Gandhi who has been crisscrossing all the five poll-bound states since September.
“I will start campaigning in Chhattisgarh tomorrow,” Sidhu said on Thursday. “The first day is packed with five rallies.”
While the second phase of polling in Chhattisgarh begins on November 20, single-phase polling will take place in Madhya Pradesh and Mizoram on November 28. Telangana and Rajasthan will go to poll on December 7. The counting of votes for all five states will take place on December 11.
In Chhattisgarh, he will campaign in 13 rural and urban localities including Raipur, Sakti, Bilaspur, Patan, and Ahiwara, within three days. From November 19 onwards, he will be in Madhya Pradesh, following which he will travel through Rajasthan in four days.
A Congress functionary said Sidhu could match the high-pitched campaign of BJP leaders, especially Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath
