  • BJP created 'so-called' 2G scam out of fear: Congress

After putting the BJP in a tight corner with his barbs in the run-up to Gujarat polls and accusing the saffron party of having an "architecture and foundation based on lies", Mr Gandhi on Saturday said that if ever the BJP has a film franchise, it would be called "Lie Hard", drawing an analogy with the famous Hollywood film series, Die Hard.

Congress Working Committee members said on Friday that "struggle for people" will be the way forward for the party and urged President Rahul Gandhi to prepare a comprehensive strategy in view of the coming electoral battles.

On Thursday, a special CBI court said investigators had failed to prove allegations that 2G or second generation spectrum was allocated out-of-turn at cheaper rates in exchange for bribes when the Congress was in power and DMK's A Raja was telecom minister.

Commerce Department sides with Boeing on CSeries tariff
Bombardier argues that they wouldn't since Boeing does not make an aircraft the size of the 100- to 130-seat CS 100. The Chicago-based aircraft manufacturing giant said the final duty determination validates its complaint.

Surjewala said former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh also referred to the challenges and the need to for the party to fulfill its responsibilities. "So the idea, their model, is to come up with a lie, spread that lie, and just keep repeating that lie until people believe the lie".

Congress president Rahul Gandhi will visit Gujarat on Saturday, the first time after the assembly polls results were announced in the state on Monday.

The Congress chief will talk to leaders from South Gujarat, North Gujarat, Central Gujarat and the Saurashtra-Kutch region and ascertain the reasons behind the party's defeat, though the party had improved its performance over 2012 elections.

The meeting is being attended by former party chief Sonia Gandhi and other members of the party's highest decision-making body. The truth is, however, out in the open that the BJP made a profession out of its conspiracy of lies and falsehoods to gain power at any cost.

"One thing which very clearly emerges that there was a conspiracy whereby an architecture of untruth and entire campaign of insinuations and calumny was systematically built in order to tarnish the image of the then UPA government", he told reporters. "The party will be taking action against them", he said.
