Mumbai [India], Dec. 20(ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said it was surprised to see Rahul Gandhi extending a kind gesture towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he asked Congress supporters to restrain from raising 'murdabad' slogans against the latter at Congress rallies. "Sometimes 'Pappu' (Rahul Gandhi ) speaks meaningful things and we hope this gesture of respect towards the Prime Minister remains in his heart, otherwise he is the kind of person who is known to tear cabinet decisions passed by his own Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh" BJP leader Prem Shukla told ANI. While addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Jaunpur district yesterday, Rahul Gandhi said, "We have a difference of opinion with Prime Minister Modi and the BJP. But let's not say murdabad. That is the work of the RSS." (ANI)
