Mumbai: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said on Saturday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's reply to the Lok Sabha debate on the no-confidence motion was "full of hatred".
"The country cannot run on hatred. Our country is a family. Modi's speech in the Lok Sabha yesterday (Friday) was full of hatred. The need of the hour is to protect the country and its Constitution," Sibal said at a 'Bharat Bachao' meeting organised in Mumbai by the Youth Congress.
"It is not the BJP, but the RSS that is ruling the country," he alleged.
The former Union minister alleged there was a threat to democracy and the Constitution as the BJP was "using institutions for its own interests".
"The Congress doesn't hate anyone," Sibal said.
"We can win the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on the strength of the Youth Congress and make Rahul Gandhi the prime minister," he said.
