Gujarat deputy chief minister Nitin Patel on Monday said that Congress party would even send invitation to terrorists like Hafiz Saeed if it feels they can help them in government formation in Gujarat.
His comments came after the grand old party included Alpesh Thakore into the party fold. The BJP claimed that Thakore was already a member of Congress party, saying that Rahul Gandhi has "reduced himself to a gimmick" with such "desperate" tactics.
BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad had told reporters that Thakore was a member of the NSUI, the Congress's student wing, and had contested a panchayat poll on a party ticket earlier.
"A big claim is being made that a major leader has joined the party (Congress). I have often accused Rahul Gandhi of not doing his homework but it seems even his scriptwriter is not doing his homework," Prasad had said. (With PTI inputs)
