After accusing the BJP of having an "architecture and foundation based on lies", Congress president Rahul Gandhi today took a swipe at the ruling party saying if it had a film franchise it would be called "Lie Hard".

Sensing the damage the news could do in the majority Hindu state, Gujarat, during the elections, the Congress came up with a claim that Rahul is a janeu-dhari (the one who wears Brahminical thread) Hindu.

On Saturday, Mr Gandhi interacted with leaders from the four regions of Gujarat and reviewed the party's performance in each sector.

"In the Gujarat assembly elections, ninety per cent of the people fought together and made efforts with the Congress in the election, but 5-10 per cent didn't help the party". Rahul is also likely to present a party workers sammelan at Gujarat University Convention Hall in Ahmedabad.

However, the Gandhi scion said that the perception of the party's ability to win seats in the state has changed following the results. "3-4 months ago, people were questioning if the Congress could even contest elections in Gujarat", the Congress leader said. The party's geographical space has squeezed since it lost the 2014 Lok Sabha polls with Punjab and Karnataka being the only major states it rules now.

The Congress president further added that his sole mission in the election was to boost the confidence in the Gujarat Congress that they can defeat the BJP.

He along with Congress General Secretary in-charge Ashok Gehlot and Gujarat Congress President Bharatsinh Solanki performed puja at the temple. 70% of you believed this. "I think 2G has been vindication (of Congress' stand)", Rahul Gandhi told reporters when asked about the special CBI court's Thursday verdict acquitting all the accused.
