New Delhi: The Congress was dismissive of Narendra Modi's efforts to reinvent himself in the backdrop of the post-Godhara carnage saying every such attempt by the Gujarat Chief Minister always ends in "absolute failure".

"Complete failure...absolute, utter failure because every time he (Modi) tries to reinvent himself, truth prevails. That is the beauty of our democracy," Congress spokesperson Renuka Chaudhary told reporters here.

She was replying to a question as to how Congress saw Modi's recent remarks on harmony in the state and whether it was an attempt by Modi to reinvent himself in the backdrop of post-Godhara carnage.

Her comments came on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Godhra train carnage.

Modi has said in Ahmedabad that a handful of people involved in Gujarat bashing are making futile attempts to disturb peace and unity in the state.

"There might be only five or 25 anti-Gujarat elements trying in vain all tricks of the trade and mischief to create hatred afresh between people," he said on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Godhra train carnage.

Throwing a challenge to such "disturbing" elements, Modi said they would not succeed in their sinister designs as the state has a strong foundation of brotherhood and peace.

"This foundation has resulted in the state gathering inherent strength to attain new heights of development," he said.

Chaudhary, however, ridiculed his remarks saying "everyone knows what is his truth."
