In a statement here, he also objected to Congress invoking former prime minister and BJP stalwart Atal Bihari Vajpayee to target Narendra Modi.

Gaur said it was ironic that Congress, which didn't pay heed to Mahatma Gandhi’s advice to dissolve itself, was now using Vajpayee's ‘Rajdharma’ remarks post the 2002 riots to target Modi.

The Congress had turned down the Father of Nation's advice only because of its "hunger for power", he said.

Gaur claimed the country's oldest party has become ‘communal and anti-people’ and it was on the verge of extinction.
