Referring to Priyanka's barbs at cousin and BJP leader Varun Gandhi, party spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi said the ideology of Congress was all about keeping people poor, promoting and protecting corrupt and abusing institutions, which question it.

"They question everybody. They have targeted CBI, CVC and media. Now they have found fault with their own family. Instead of blaming one and all, they should look within," he said.

Trivedi said the people were well aware of the ideologies of the BJP and Congress.

“Congress believes in looting the public money and then protection the corrupt and corruption," he said.

Even on the issues of minorities, especially Muslims, over which BJP is always targeted, Trivedi said the ‘role’ of Congress has been exposed by Sachar and Ranganath Mishra Committees which have highlighted rampant poverty and illiteracy among them.

"Congress believes in keeping them poor, illiterate and under fear to exploit them for political gains," he said.

Kick-starting her mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi's campaign in Rae Bareli, Priyanka earlier said there are two separate ideologies fighting this election.

Launching a blistering attack on the BJP, she said the other ideology believes in dividing people.
