Most communal party of the country is Congress: Rajnath Singh

Kochi: In a tit-for-tat for Rahul Gandhi's attack on his party over riots, BJP President Rajnath Singh today hit out against Congress, saying it was the 'most communal' party in the country.

He made the remarks when his response was sought by reporters here with regard to Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi's charge in poll-bound Rajastahn yesterday that 'BJP was fanning the politics of anger and hate and damaging the country's secular fabric'.
