In a fresh jibe at Rahul Gandhi, who is on his Bharat Jodo Yatra, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Sarma Biswa said on Tuesday that nowadays the Gandhi Scion’s looks have changed and he looks more like Saddam Hussein.
Hitting back at the Assam CM over his remark, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister and Congress leader Digvijay Singh said that Assam CM should be ashamed of speaking ill about Rahul Gandhi as whatever he is today is because of the Congress leader.
Assam Congress chief, Bhupen Kumar Borah also took a dig at Himanta Sharma for his remark against the Congress leader. He said, “You (Assam CM)just want a headline & you get that only when you take Rahul Gandhi’s name. Himanta Biswa Sarma can say anything. He can go to any level for power. We don’t pay attention.”

Former Union minister Jairam Ramesh, who addressed the press conference along with Digvijay Singh, said that the Savarkar chapter is closed and it should not be discussed now, days after Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray-led faction said the Congress leader’s attacks on the Hindutva ideologue may impact their alliance in the state.
Speaking about the Gujarat elections, Digvijay Singh said that Congress is fighting the elections to win.
