Rahul jumped 'sinking' Congress ship instead of saving it: Shivraj Singh

BJP vice-president Shivraj Singh Chouhan took a dig at Rahul Gandhi, saying he was the first to jump out of a 'sinking' Congress ship instead of trying to save it till the end.

"You would not know today who president of Congress is. We heard that when any ship is sinking, it's the captain who stays on till the end to save. But, the captain is the one who jumped first from Congress' ship," he told reporters.

Neither Prime Minister Narendra Modi nor BJP president Amit Shah or party activists were resting on their laurels after the party's massive victory in Lok Sabha polls, he said.

Chouhan, who is BJP's membership 'pramukh' (convener), said the party would soon launch its membership drive.

The opposition parties were in a bad state with the SP and BSP "splitting" in Uttar Pradesh and Rahul "jumping the ship", he claimed.
