The BJP also termed Mr Gandhi as a "failed leader", who it claimed was feeling frustated and angered as his ambition and dream of "only one family having the entitlement of ruling over the country" has been demolished.

Moreover, the BJP chief cited the Congress' alleged attack on the CAG, Election Commission, the Army and the Supreme Court at different points of time and its imposition of the Emergency in 1975.
