Chennai: A Deputy Tahsildar in Tirunelveli has filed a complaint against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, with respect to his campaign in the town.
According to sources, the officer Vijaya has alleged that Rahul Gandhi did not obtain necessary permissions for his meetings.
The Congress leader who is touring the Southern States, described Prime Minister Narendra Modi a ‘formidable enemy’ who ‘crushed’ his opponents and vowed to send him to political oblivion by following the path of love and non-violence.
Accusing Tamilnadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami of ‘bowing’ and ‘surrendering’ to the Prime Minister, Gandhi, addressing public meetings and road shows said the CM does not work for Modi but the people of the state.
During an interaction with professors at the St Xavier College here, Gandhi said he counted on people’s support to defeat the BJP.
When a participant wanted to know if Gandhi felt it was possible to nudge the Modi government to implement his ‘good ideas’ rather than waiting to assume power which seemed ‘Utopian’, he said it could be done with the ‘powerful’ and ‘valuable’ support of the people.
