Ramesh said that he will not respond to the allegations leveled by Modi.

"I would not comment on any allegations levelled by Modi as he never speaks truth," he said.

He also rejected BJP's claim that there was a Modi-wave.

"There is no Modi wave, there is a poisonous wave,” Ramesh said.

When asked to comment on Congress leader Shashi Tharoor's statement that there was no vacancy for Priyanka Gandhi in Congress, he said, "Of course there is no vacancy as Sonia Gandhi is the president and Rahul Gandhi is the vice-president of the party."

"However, Priyanka Gandhi is playing a major role in deciding policy matters of the elections and will campaign in Rae Bareli and Amethi. On her direction, 40 percent of party candidates are below 50 years of age," Ramesh added.
