Tamil Nadu BJP President K Annamalai on November 21 slammed Rahul Gandhi over his remarks insinuating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had brought ill luck to India’s cricket team in the World Cup final, which he attended in Ahmedabad on November 19. Talking to ANI on the ‘Panauti’ remark controversy, K Annamalai said that it takes courage for any Prime Minister to be in a stadium when India is clearly at a losing point. “Congress as a party when it gets desperate. it wants to abuse the PM... It needs courage for a prime minister to be in the stadium when India is on the losing side. It shows the character of PM, his definition of success. The PM’s definition of success is very simple, how do you play with what dignity you conducted yourself, how do you put your country first?... The PM was there in person after a hard day of campaigning in Rajasthan, he sat for the last 10 or over, and he met the audience... He visited the dressing room and consoled each player... This is a PM who has been showing to India continuously for the last 9 years,” said Annamalai.
Amid the ongoing tension in the country over ‘Khalistan’, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi paid a visit to Golden Temple in Amritsar on Oct 02. The Congress leader paid obeisance at the temple and also offered ‘Sewa’ at the Golden Temple. Meanwhile, this brought a chance for the BJP leaders to pinch Congress over the 1984 ‘Operation Blue Star’. Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma invoked ‘Operation Blue Star’ to mock Rahul Gandhi’s service as the auspicious temple. Talking to ‘X’, CM Himanta said, “Grandmother sprayed bullets and Grand child is doing sewa” Launching a scathing attack on Assam CM, Congress leader Arvinder Singh Lovely called it ‘Vinash Kale Viprit Buddhi’. On June 6, 1984, the Indian Army, under ‘Operation Blue Star’ stormed into the Golden Temple on orders of then PM Indira Gandhi. The order was issued to contain Sikh militancy under the leadership of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in Punjab. The Operation was heavily criticized and led to her assassination by two of her Sikh bodyguards at her New Delhi residence on October 31, 1984.

AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi while giving a speech in Hyderabad challenged Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to contest elections from the state. He said, “I am challenging your leader (Rahul Gandhi) to contest elections from Hyderabad and not Wayanad. You keep giving big statements, come to the ground and fight against me. People from Congress will say a lot of things, but I am ready...Babri Masjid and Secretariat's mosque were demolished under the Congress regime.”
Continuing the 'Sanatana Dharma' Row after Tamil Nadu Youth Welfare Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin’s ‘eradicate Sanatana Dharma’ remark, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma asserted to have problems with the Congress party. “I don't have much problem with Stalin. I have a problem with Congress...I want to ask them (Congress) if tomorrow I give such a statement about Muslims or Christians, will Congress consider it my freedom of speech?... Be it Hinduism, Islam, or Christianity, why are you talking about ending them? This is not right. The main culprit for this is Congress MP Rahul Gandhi,” said Himanta Biswa Sarma.
