New Delhi: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Friday hit out at the poll panel alleging that they had designed the campaign schedule to favour the Prime Minister.
"The entire schedule has been in Modi's favour and the people of the country understand this," he said at a press conference, which was being held at the same time as Narendra Modi and Amit Shah’s media briefing at the BJP’s Delhi headquarters.
Asserting the case for a strong bonhomie between the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and the Telugu Desam Party, Rahul Gandhi said that the opposition parties will not support the BJP.
He indicated that opposition parties will get together to form the next government.
Gandhi said his party's strategy was to "systematically close down every door to stop Narendra Modi from escaping."
"We closed 90 per cent of the doors (for Modi), he closed 10 per cent for himself by abusing opponents," the Congress chief said.
He also mocked the prime minister for holding his first press conference just days before polling ends.
BJP chief Amit Shah and Modi held a press conference at the party headquarters at the same time when Gandhi addressed the media at the Congress head office.
"Why did the prime minister not accept my challenge for a debate on the Rafale issue," asked Gandhi.
