New Delhi [India], February 24 (ANI): BJP leaders including JP Nadda, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Yogi Adityanath and S Jaishankar, on Tuesday slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his remarks comparing his present Wayanad parliamentary constituency to his previous Amethi seat and accused him of creating a north-south divide.BJP president JP Nadda accused Gandhi of spewing venom against the North.A few days back he was in the Northeast, spewing venom against the western part of India. Today in the South he is spewing venom against the North. Divide and rule politics wont work, RahulGandhi Ji! Nadda said in a tweet. Gandhi, who addressed an event to mark the conclusion of Aishwarya Kerala Yatra in poll-bound Kerala, said he had been MP for 15 years from the north and had used to a different type of politics and coming to Kerala was very refreshing.For the first 15 years, I was an MP in the north. I had got used to a different type of politics. For me, coming to Kerala was very refreshing as suddenly I found that people are interested in issues not just superficially but they like to go into detail about issues, Rahul said.I was talking to some students in the United States and I said to them I really enjoy going to Kerala. Its not just affection but the way you do your politics, the intelligence with which you do your politics. So, for me, its been a learning experience and a pleasure, he added.Gandhi had represented Amethi, a bastion of Nehru-Gandhi family, for 15 years in Lok Sabha. He fought from two constituencies in 2019 and was defeated from Amethi but won from Wayanad in Kerala. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan accused the Congress of trying to create a north-south divide in the country. Wherever Rahul Gandhi has landed, Congress has been grounded. Rahulji had earlier made north India free of Congress and now he has headed southwards. For us and the people, the entire country is one. Congress wants to divide the country into north and south. People will not allow these attempts to succeed, Chouhan said in a tweet.Not Rahul, its his divisive mentality that is speaking. It is the same Congress that divided the country into India and Pakistan on the basis of religion. Do they now want to divide.
