New Delhi: In the backdrop of National Herald case, the Congress launched an all out attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and claimed that the petitioner Subramanian Swamy is his "stooge".

In a show of support ahead of the hearing of the National Herald case where Congress President Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi will be appearing before the court, a host of party leaders, including Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge, Randeep Singh Surjewala, addressed the media to attack the NDA government.

Calling Swamy a "stooge" for Modi, Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said the BJP functionary has been awarded with a bungalow for dragging Congress leadership to court even though he was not a Parliamentarian or government official.

Ghulam Nabi Azad also reiterated Surjewala's remarks and questioned the government's move to allot Swamy a house and security. "He (Swamy) has been placed under Z-category and allotted a government bungalow. He is not a member of the Parliament nor from a border state. He is not facing any threat from any terrorist organisation. The bungalow was given as an award for dragging the Congress leadership to court," said Azad.

Azad said that the Congress was being targeted by the Modi government and claimed that they are ready to fight them everywhere, be it on the roads, in Parliament or in the court.

"The BJP government is resorting to unprecedented level of vendetta politics. The country has never seen this kind of politics. We will fight out the battle," Azad said.

"Before elections, BJP had given a call for Congress-free India, now they are trying to have a Opposition-free India: Congress," he said.
