"The Congress party had become a burden for our country. It has rotten, which is now visible in its public image," Modi said at a public gathering at Vastral, city outskirts.

"When Manmohan Singh became the PM, he was a good person, we did not say anything against him. But, because of he being with the Congress, he has got spoiled; and if people like Manmohan Singh get spoiled by the rot in Congress, then we need to remove that rot," he said.
