Modi’s name appears on the Congress Party’s home page more than Rahul Gandhi’s

8: the number of times the word Modi appeared on the home page of the Congress Party‘s website yesterday. That is four times the appearance of the name of its own leader, Rahul Gandhi on the same page. The party’s campaign has pivoted of late to question the credentials, claims and connections of Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) leader Narendra Modi. Rahul Gandhi did not appear on the BJP’s website home page at all on the same day, though Robert Vadra—the brother-in-law of Rahul Gandhi who allegedly profited from illicit real estate deals—appears five times on it.
