New Delhi [India], October 23 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday termed the Congress as 'Dramebaaz Party no. 1' (a party that is expert in theatrics).

Addressing a press conference here, Union Law and Information and Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "Many films with 'No. 1' title were made in the country, like Jodi no. 1, Dost no. 1 and Aunty no. 1. Today, I am giving a new name to the Congress -Dramebaaz Party no. 1 and I am saying this with full responsibility."

The BJP's allegation came after Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday highlighted a charge by the Patidar leader from north Gujarat, Narendra Patel, that the BJP tried to buy him in one of his tweets.

"Gujarat is priceless. It has never been bought. It can never be bought. It will never be bought," Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

Training his guns on Rahul Gandhi, Prasad said that the Gandhi scion didn't understand the serious dynamics of the economics and development.

"I am sorry to say, but the problem with Rahul Gandhi is that he is going to be crowned as the president of the Congress, but that is his outlook and of his party. But I am constrained to observe that Rahul Gandhi is yet to understand the serious dynamics of the economics and development," Prasad said.

The Union Minister further alleged that Rahul Gandhi's scriptwriters didn't do homework.

"What is the role of Foreign Direct Investment? How does the global trade operate? How do you leverage your country's position? These are issues that are alien to him (Rahul Gandhi). Therefore, it all depends on the non-homework initiative of Gandhi's script writers," Prasad claimed.

The Union Minister also said that "Rahul Gandhi politics of India is a serious business. The more Rahul Gandhi speaks, the more truth comes to fore".

Earlier in the day, another Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan declared Rahul Gandhi as a frustrated human being.

He was replying to a question about Rahul Gandhi's criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the government's policies during his recent three-day tour of Gujarat. (ANI)
