Assembly polls are a few days away in Rajasthan and Rahul’s attack at the Opposition comes just a day after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi lambasted UPA government over the issue of corruption and scams.

Addressing a rally at Udaipur, the Congress vice-president said that he is ready to give up all dreams of his own for sake of fulfilling the dreams of the nation. The Gandhi scion said, “I am ready to forgo my own dreams to fulfill your dreams. If you want to abuse us you are free to do so but we will not accept that since we are true soldiers of the Congress."

He also said, "My party has worked for the common man in Delhi and in Rajasthan. We have worked for the poor. We have worked for the nation."

Rahul, who is often ‘tipped’ as the Congress’s PM nominee for 2014 Lok Sabha polls further said, "Eat three-four rotis and bring Congress back to power."

Rahul Gandhi also took a dig at those who criticized the Food Security Bill and hit out at the Opposition for creating obstacles in passing the ambitious bill of the party, a brainchild of Congress president Sonia Gandhi mainly to render cheap food to a major section of the country's population.

Rahul Gandhi's Udaipur rally is being dubbed as Congress' answer to BJP strongman  and poll panel chief Narendra Modi's massive rally, which was held in Jaipur on Tuesday.

Earlier on Tuesday, Gujarat CM Narendra Modi had blamed the ruling Congress-led UPA government for a series of cases of corruption, scams and economic decline of the country, and appealed to the saffron party’s supporters to make sure, it makes a comeback in the upcoming polls.

Congress will not resort to abuse: Rahul   

Making a veiled attack on Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi also said that Congress would not resort to abuse of its rivals notwithstanding any amount of provocation.
    
Addressing an election rally in poll-bound Rajasthan, a day after Modi attacked Congress on the issue of corruption with a sarcastic alphabetic primer, Gandhi said, ‘one person came and made fun (of us).’ He did not take the name of the Gujarat Chief Minister.
    
"We will not say anything wrong about anybody. Opposition can attack us, abuse us. It is their discretion. They can also make fun of us, let them have pleasure. That anger is theirs and we will not accept their gift," the Congress vice-president said.
    
"No matter how much you (Opposition) criticize us, we won't accept it because we are Congress soldiers, we work for the country. Our dream is the dream of our country. We are fighting for the poor people in the country, "he said. 
    
Apparently targetting BJP over its stand on minorities, he highlighted the difference in thought between Congress and the Opposition party.
    
"What we consider is that India is a bouquet with different flowers. We want all the flowers to shine, be it Hindu, Sikh, Muslim or Adivasi or anyone. We want to take everyone along. We want the voice of Adivasis to be heard," he said.
        
"Opposition thinks poor people are a burden. We think this country has been made by the sweat and blood of these poor people," Rahul said.
