"There is utter confusion in the Congress war room. Their strategy is going haywire. Rahul Gandhi first said he does not approve of personal attacks and then launched a personal attack on (Narendra) Modiji's affidavit,” BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.
"An emotional appeal from Priyanka Vadra that says personal matters should not be raised. Today, she also raised personal matters again. Why can't Congress make up its mind," she added.
The BJP reaction comes in the wake of Priyanka targeting Narendra Modi by raising the snoopgate issue saying, "If you want to empower women, then why listen to their private conversations."
Sitharaman said Congress party has no message to give to the people during elections and was trying to run away from answering the questions raised by the people on economy, unemployment and lack of development.
"Congress party has no message...They are absolutely confused. Whether they want to run away from answering questions...are we going to be personal...are we going to be emotional...you owe an answer to the people of India for messing up the economy for the last ten years.
"You are not answering the questions raised. The people of India want to know why they are losing their jobs, why there is no power, why they have to pay through their nose for their basic essentials," she said.
After Priyanka said she strongly feels about attacks on her husband, BJP said while she wants people to refrain from personal attacks, Congress has been targeting Narendra Modi on a variety of issues including his marital status.
Agreeing that "personal issues" should not be raked up, BJP leader Arun Jaitley said, "Issues of probity are public issues. They are not personal issues." He was apparently referring to allegations relating to land deals against Priyanka's husband Robert Vadra.
